About

3 km / 1 hour circuit / easy walk

A unique village
A small “town” began to form in the centre of Fyresdal in the 1870s, what was known as Folkestadbyen. People began moving here from the farms and hamlets surrounding the village. Many of them brought their houses with them, erected outbuildings and created small gardens. This garden city structure still forms the centre of Fyresdal, and this makes Folkestadbyen unique compared with other villages.

Suitable for children, elderly and wheelchair users
The whole trip takes just under one hour at a leisurely pace. The tour is suitable for both families with children and elderly people. Most of the trail is suitable for wheelchair users.

The Øyskogen village park
Did you know that Fyresdal is home to one of the largest burial grounds in Telemark? The 18 burial mounds are located in the Øyskogen village park and date back to the Early Iron Age (600–1000 AD). The park also provides the backdrop for a collection of buildings from various periods between the 1500s and 1800s. There are guided tours during the summer.

Starting point
The cultural heritage trail starts in the centre of Fyresdal by the museum in Øyskogen. You can choose whether to do the entire trail or just one of the loops. The whole trip takes just under one hour at a leisurely pace.
