around Nymoen

Explore the cultural trail around Nymoen where the social history of Blaafarveværket are shown along the trail.

Nymoen and Nymogaten were housing for the workers at the Blaafarveværket in 1779. Several of these buildings are still standing there, and on the Nymoen Rundt cultural trail you can walk through the old residential environment. Along the way, you can stop at information signs that tell about everything from living conditions to school operations. Several of the houses, from workers' housing to executive housing, are open with their own exhibitions.

Today, many of the original houses here have been demolished or rebuilt in favor of newer houses. However, there are some buildings that stand as they were built over 200 years ago, such as workers' house no. 9 and Nymoen School. In both of these you will find thought-provoking exhibitions.

Further on, the stately Director’s House has a beautiful garden, with herbs, roses, a pavilion and carp pond, which is also open to the public. You’ll also find a store and a kiosk selling refreshments here. On the way down to the Cobalt Works, you pass the Doctor’s Farm, who is back in our ownership since the winter of 2024, and the old material manager’s residence.
