This is a former cobalt mine, which has been turned into a cultural heritage site. The mine shafts, which were in operation between 1773 and 1893, are open to visitors. There is an art gallery and collections displaying cobalt-pigmented glass and china. There is also an animal farm and a splendid waterfall, Haugfossen. Home-cooked food is also available. The museum of the work of Theodor Kittelsen, a Norwegian painter famous for his trolls and mystic landscapes, is also well-worth a visit. Take the train to Åmot (you may have to change trains at Drammen); it is a one and a half-hour ride.
