As the inspiration for the name of the fictional ‘Arendelle’ kingdom in the hit Disney animation Frozen, this quaint, sleepy town in Southern Norway is quickly becoming one of the country’s most sought-after tourist spots. And although much of the famous film’s settings are actually based on the beautiful city of Bergen, those who visit Arendal won’t be disappointed by the abundance of sights to discover.

Formerly an important shipbuilding and shipping town, Arendal’s pretty harbour was once a bustling industrial zone, but today it’s is where the town’s busy fish market, finest restaurants and welcoming pubs are found,[ReadMoreMob] as well as the striking Town Hall – the tallest wooden building in Norway. In Tyholmen – the delightful historic centre of the town – you’ll discover protected narrow alleyways, fantastic views of the surrounding landscapes and fine examples of 17th century architecture, including brightly-painted wooden houses and towering Trefoldighetskirken Church.
