“Walk the nice park to see The Castle. Next to the park area you will reach "Litteraturhuset": a bookshop/restaurant with author readings, "Kunstnernes Hus": The central art gallery with interesting new art exhibitions, or the "Ibsen Museum". If you want a sweet treat, you should look up "Pascal" close to the park for a delicious treat.”
