Tverken is the perfect stop for a Norwegian waffle or a bolle(sweet bun) when adventuring in Drammensmarka.
Tverken offers bakeries and other things to buy when you have been hiking to Tverråsen or skiing the many ski trails around this area.
Tverken is usually open from 10-15 every Saturday and Sunday except for July.
There are multiple ways to get to Tverråsen. But the most common way of getting there is to drive up to Landfalltjern(toll road) and then walk pass Tverken and up to Tverråsen. From Drammen drive up to and behind Drammen Hospital. Follow the signs for Spiralen, but as you pass the hospital don't take the right towards Spiralen but continue on Hans Hansensvei. About 150 meters later you need to take a right into Sanatorieveien and then later continue on Underlia. There are small signs for Landfallhytta that you can follow up the hill.
As you pass the last residential houses you will need to pay the toll to continue onwards to Landfalltjern. The toll is 35 NOK and you can pay by credit card. Continue up Lanfalltjernveien all the way to the western end of Landfalltjern lake. The road up is quite steep.
Follow the gravel road up towards Tverken. The road is about 3 km and it is very easy to follow. The trail gradually climbs and you will hit the steepest section right after leaving the parking lot.
- Strollers and bikes can also use this trail
- Free parking at Landfalltjern(the road up there has a toll)
