Lindøya Island

Lindøya Island

With the wide variety of colors that dominate the island, Lindøya Island is definitely worth a visit. Although it is small, with around 300 cottages painted red, yellow and green, the colors make this site seem like a fairy tale come true, making it different from all the other islands around it. This island provides you with many locations for swimming and recreation. In the middle of the field, there is a soccer pitch and a shop. The natural scenery of the island seems untainted and breathtaking, and if you dedicate yourself to its exploration, you may stumble upon the monument to Kristiania Meridian, which dates back to the year 1850, as well as a swimming pool opened in 1949, which is still in use today. Another historical monument on this island is the Stamhuset Inn, which was first opened in 1750, located close to the pier.
