Grimstad is an idyllic city with small, white wooden houses, narrow cobbled streets, tiny cafes and bakeries scattered around the city centre. Ask any one of the 20 000 inhabitants in Grimstad to describe their city, and they will probably tell you about the beautiful coastline covered with islands, skerries and small tucked away beaches. Grimstad is located only 40 minutes by car from Kristiansand.
