Åspaviljongen Cafe lies in the nearest and most popular goal, Bragernesåsen. On the ridge below Spiraltoppen and you can follow the old footpaths, built by citizens more than hundred years ago. The Hamborgstrøm Forest with 200-year-old trees has a rich flora and fauna. On a lucky day you may even meet both moose and deer.
THE OPEN-AIR MUSEUM
The Open-Air Museum is located northwest of Spiraltoppen. This lovely woodland area includes several old village houses displaying yesterday´s homes, building style and trades in Buskerud county. Within the grounds of the Open-Air Museum begins a nature trail which takes you to lovely scenery and several forest secrets.
Wherever you are in Drammen, you will always be only a few minutes away from fine footpaths, nature trails, glittering forest lakes and miles upon miles of fine woodland or hilly grounds, splendid viewpoints and scenic countryside. It is up to yourself to choose the distance and the degree of difficulty you can manage, both in summer and in winter.
The nearest and most popular goal is Bragernesåsen. It has a full network of foot paths and trails to follow to the ridge where there is a marvellous view of Drammen. You´ll see Strømsø-åsen ridge, the wide valley, the harbour, the mouth of the river and the wide Drammensfjord.
Walk along charming nature trails, or pick and choose from the many paths and trails on the ridge before walking back to town.
Another suggestion is to head for Landfalltjern, Tverken restaurant, up Tverråsen and further inland to Skimtvarden (584 metres).
There is a splendid view from here in all directions, to the mountains in the west and north, to the fjord, the sea and the coastal areas in the east and south. An information board gives you the names of all the sights plus the distance on a beeline.
