The oldest town in Norway stands on the western bank of Oslofjord; its origin year is placed by the famous historian Snorre Sturluson around 871, when the Viking town Tonsberg became the royal coronation site. A rich historic heritage is found here, beginning with the city landmark - the tower built on the hill in 1888 as a stand-in for the old fortress - ruins of Tonsberghus, the Royal Castle or the Vestfold Museum. Still, modern Tonsberg has as much more to offer than the old town; especially in summertime, the tourist will find here one of the liveliest day and nightlife in Norway. The surroundings are also rich in tourist attractions, mostly old Viking graves and various museums.
