Lunde Slusekro is a nice little summer restaurant at Lunde Lock . Here, the veteran ships sailing the Telemark Canal M / S Henrik Ibsen, M / S Viktoria and M / S Telemarken meet during the canal season. From the outdoor terrace there are great views to the lock chambers, the canal and the surrounding nature.
Lunde Slusekro is located half way up the Telemark Canal and many who travel on the canal start or end their journey on here. 
The venue offers café and restaurant with simple service and casual dining. 
Open every Summer
The opening hours follow the channel season closely, but in the spring and autumn months the restaurant is open on weekends and on selected dates.
Free parking
There is free parking in the parking lot approx. 200 meters before the lock.
Welcome to Lunde Slusekro by the beautiful Telemark Canal.

      Very small and cosy place. Stuffed with tourists in summertime. Menu is quite small and food is quite simple. But I do think it's too pricy. Also they had just simple black coffee. Read full review
