Welcome to Bærum

There are no translations available.

They say Bærum is Norway in miniature, so welcome to us for a real taste of Norway!

In Bærum you will find most of what nature has provided throughout the rest of the country. With a population of 110.000 and a landscape which varies from beaches and fjord, to forests and hills, and all this just a few minutes drive from Oslo, Norway’s capital city.

Bærum is Norway’s largest local authority outside the cities, and the fifth largest munciplaity in Norway measured in population.

Bærum enjoys a tranquil setting, sheltered from the north by forests and hills and open to the sun and sea in the south. Enjoy the Oslo fjord with thrilling islands and small island communities, wide, open and fertile valleys, arable land, hilly terrain, challenging rock faces and deep forests. In other words, a place to search for peace and quiet, but at the opposite extreme a place of urban life.

Many of the country’s cornerstone companies have chosen to locate their head offices in Bærum. Fornebu is for example one of Scandinavia's fastest growing business districts housing a vast concentration of Norwegian main offices and headquarters.  More about Fornebu.

In Fornebu you also find Telenor Arena / Fornebu Arena, Scandinavia's largest multi-use indoor stadium. The Arena hosts football matches, concerts and events and has a maximum capacity of 25 000 spectators. It was also here the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 Finals were held.

Sandvika is the administrative center and Bærums "capital". Sandvika received town status in 2003. Situated close to the sea, Sandvika has always had a lot to say for Bærum. Today Sandvika is an active commercial and cultural center.

Bærum has a good neigbour in the muncipality of Asker. More about Asker.
