You’ll find Notodden 110km southwest of Oslo. There are many reasons to spend a day or more in Notodden. The former industrial town is now inscribed on the UNESCO world heritage list along with Rjukan. Telemarksgalleriet and Lysbuen museum is a great starting point if you wish to discover the towns exciting and intriguing history, and the many world heritage attractions. We also recommend going for a walk through the Tinfos cultural area, Villamoen, Hydro Admini, Grønnebyen, Hydroparken and Notoddens art-noveau city centre.

Right next to the shore of lake Heddalsvannet you will find Notoddens new cultural venue, Bok & Blueshuset (House of Books & Blues), with a state of the art cinema, library, café and Blueseum. Notodden is the blues capital of Europe, and the first weekend in august the annual Notodden Blues Festival is held here.
A few kilometers outside Notodden city center you can visit the pride of Notodden, Telemark and Norway; Heddal Stave church, the largest and one of the oldest stave churches in Norway! In the surrounding area there’s Olea café and Heddal local museum, where you can see and learn about life and architecture in Norway from medieval times to the late 19th century.
