 Drammenselva River

Mjøndalen is the administrative centre and is situated south of the Drammenselva River opposite of Krokstadelva. Historically Mjøndalen was known for its industry. All the industrial sites closed in the late 1960s.

Mjøndalen has a friendly sports rivalry with the neighbouring communities of Solbergelva and Krokstadelva. The rivalry is mostly in sports such as soccer and bandy and cross-country skiing. In bandy, Mjøndalen IF have become Norwegian champions several times.

The poet Herman Wildenvey lived the first years of his life in Mjøndalen. At three years of age, he was moved to the Portåsen farm on the edge of the forest above the village.
