Kurbadet – Norway´s first Spa
Sandefjord became renowned in Europe in the middle of the 1800s as a centre for medicinal baths. Sandefjord Bad was opened as a health resort in 1837, and both royalty and well-known figures from the arts world were among the guests at the spa. The resort remained in operation up until the Second World War. The Old Spa is today used for culture and banqueting rooms.
