Askim Kulturhus with high quality cultural performanses several nights a week. Tertitten, an old narrow-track steam train.
Tusenfryd, Norways biggest amusement park!
Töcksfors, Sweeden, with nice restaurants and big shopping centres.
Oslo! With Frognerparken sculpture park, Aker Brygge, The Opera, Holmenkollen and much more! I would recommend dining/lunching at Frognerseteren! It is by Holmenkollen on the outskirts and high above the city centre. The buildings are amazing and grand with an outstanding view!
Kolsåstoppen, fairly short and steep hike up to a mountaintop with a spectacular view over the Oslo fjord and arpelaggio.
The easier way with even more amazing view is to walk up the slopes at the tiny skiing centre at Borgen in Asker.
Gamlebyen, the fortified town in Fredrikstad
Drøbak, a cosy costal town with nice dining and a sand beach by the city sentre.
