Where is Drammen Located?
Drammen is located at the end of the Drammenfjord, a side fjord of the Oslo Fjord, at the mouth of the river Drammenselva, which in turn is an outlet of the largest lake of Buskerud – the Tyrifjord. This situation has proved to be strategically favourable. Its present size owes the city to the wooden trade, which has traditionally been and is settled by waterways.
6,000-year-old Hellerist Ningers point to early settlements in this Region. From the 14th century onwards, two independent towns developed at the Drammenselva estuary (Bragernes in the North and Strømsø / Tangen in the South), which were merged into the town of Drammen in 1811. Following the merger with the municipality of Skoger, Drammen became the sixth largest city in Norway.
