The atmosphere in Kragerø  is an attraction in itself. You can find a variety of art exhibitions wall to wall with antique outlets and nice specialty shops.
Theodor Kittelsen, the famous cartoonist and painter, grew up in Kragerø. Kittelsenhuset is centrally located in town and every year a new exhibition is arranged to commemorate this artist.
The Artist Quarter nearby the church is also worth a visit. Here you can find ateliers and galleries and  you can watch the artists live at work.
The history of the coastal fort on Gunnarsholmen goes back to the time when enemy warships and pirates threatened the town. The island is now a park with excellent bathing facilities. The fort’s cannons are fired whenever a major event is celebrated, like our National Day on 17 May. Then the three- and four-hundred-year-old cannons mark the occasion with a bang!
