History of Drøbak

Drøbak, situated close to the fjord, has always relied on water in one way or another. The very first people to settle here on the steep hillsides sloping down to the water, surely transported both goods and people along the fjord. The Vikings would sail or row their longships to and from Viken (Oslo), and when the fjord froze during the cold season, the ice would carry them. During the Middle Ages Husvik was a place where the Vikings could hold court and hope to sort out conflicts of all kinds.
