Sandefjord a modern town rich in History, a town with a picturesque location and pleasant and welcoming inhabitants, modern, but at the same time rich in historical tradition. Sandefjord perhaps best known as the whaling town. Bjerggata, an idyllic part of town with its many charming and well-preserved old wooden houses.
The whaling monument is located at the end of the city´s main street, Jernbanealléen, in the harbour area. Nearby is a restaurant called Kokeriet, one of the relatively few places where whale meat is regularly served.
