Munch in Åsgårdstrand

- Where Edvard Munch made his first home

In Åsgårdstrand you will learn about Munch the artist and Munch the person. A guided tour will take you past Munch’s landscape – the coastline, the narrow streets with white houses – and give you a sense of what it was that inspired many of the artist’s most renowned works.


The first home he made – his tiny ‘Lykkehus’, or ‘Happy House’ – is now a small museum. Visitors come face to face with the world-famous artist and his house.


‘It is here’, he once said, ‘that I painted my best pictures for more than 30 years…’
