We went there to catch the Ferry to the fortress, and found a pretty fjordside village that invokes an idyllic image. With wooden buildings, a shoreline footpath and swimming platforms and diving boards along the edge of the fjord this is well worth a stop...More

This city is truely amazing, especially during the summer! They have fresh shrimp coming in daily, that you can buy directly from the boats and eat on the harbour. It's a small town with nice and welcoming people.

We did a tour of Drobak with a local family. The downtown area is very sweet and quaint with lots of good cafes and restaurants, art galleries, and an open air market. You can easily get to Drobak by ferry or bus.

On a sunny day this nice village is well worth the time to get there. Nice walks in narrow streets with old rustic brightly colored houses, great restaurants, galleries, and even a very nice beach.

This town is visually attractive with buildings subject to strict conservation regulations. The timber structures are a visual treat and it a pleasure to stroll around. There are also excellent walks by the shore of the Fjord. Personally I did not think much of the...More
