Vollen has been a trading place ever since Hans Kristian Christensen bought Vollen farm and opened a general store and bakery in 1870. The buildings in Vollen are well restored where you fin modern shops and cafes. You get a taste of the southern Norway here.

The beach resort Vollen dates back to the Viking Age. In Sjøvollbukta a little north of Vollen center, a cargo ship from the 13th century wa dug out of the mud. Vollen has always been associated with fishing and shipping, hunting and hunters. Vollen was the shipping port for Dikemark ironworks in the 18th century, later ships exported ice blocks, granite blocks and garden products to the cities in Europe.

Because of calcareous soil, favorable climate and good market in the capital, horticulture became very widespread from the 1860s to 70s.

Vollen has a rich ship building tradition. Christian Jensen started his boat yard in 1898 and thus continued the tradition from Søren Gudmundsen, who had built sharp sailors in Vollen from approx. 1870, and the contemporary and very skilled utility boat builder Hans Breskehaugen. In 1905, engineer Johan Anker and Christian Jensen joined the company, and a number of well-known regatta boats came from Anker & Jensens Baatbyggeri a/s. In 1915, the teams divorced, and in 1916–17 the polar ship «Maud» was built for Roald Amundsen at Arnestad Wooden Shipyard, which Christian Jensen had established. Maudbukta has become a geographical and historical term in Vollen. The boat building for Johan Anker existed until the 1950s. Learn more about the coastal culture at the Oslofjord Museum in Vollen.

 

Welcome to Vollen, a favourite spot among the locals. Enjoy a day of multiple activities in an historical environment.
