  • A truly spectacular place if you're a nature lover. Beautiful lake, lots of waterfowl, a peaceful place to clear your mind or enjoy a break from the city. Wonderful for running as well.

  • I had heared that Norwegian nature is pristine, but this is not. Too many people, no nice cafes or hang-outs, no innovation. Just lots of people walking or running around the lake. Could be cleaner.
