"People watching at the harbour side." Arendal Things to Do Tip by Saagar

Arendal Things to Do: 9 reviews and 9 photos

  No people? - wrong season!
by Saagar

Checking out the other passer-byes at the Pollen bay appears to be THE thing to do in Arendal. This is during summer. And, admittedly, that is one heck of a fine activity here.

According to local legend, during the rest of the year, most of the activity is concentrated around a french fries/hot dog stand a bit up from Pollen. A stand-up-comedian cum TV entertainer of Norwegian fame (hmmm, does this say much?) was picked up from here and brought Arendal's mid-90es racism and insularity and oddity to light.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
