What people are saying:

The largest island in the Oslo Fjord. In summer, the island has lush vegetation and beautiful scenery. The island still preserves the ruins of the 11th century Cistercian monastery. Since it was once part of the Oslo defense system, some ancient military buildings and installations can also be seen.
