Information to all who are attending the dinner on 9th September

The dinner will be held at the beautiful and historic Munkholmen (The Monk’s Islet). The islet has served as a place of execution, a monastery, a fortress, prison, and a World War II anti-aircraft gun station. Today, Munkholmen is a popular tourist attraction and recreation site.

The trip involves a boat ride of 10 minutes. The boat arrives from a place called Ravnkloa at 18:00, look at your map in the folder and follow the red arrow/blue dotted line. (see map below).

On arrival, there will be a guided tour at the islet/monastery. The dinner will be at approx. 19:00.
The forecasts indicate that it will be cloudy and some sun and about 13 degrees that day. Walking distance from hotels to Ravnkloa is approx. 600 meters (10 minutes’ walk).
We recommend everyone to bring clothes and shoes that will be comfortable for the happening.

The local committee will also walk from Best Western Nova Hotel no later than 17.45, so if you’re unfamiliar with the road you could walk with us. We also walk by Thon Hotel Gildevangen (down Søndre gate), almost around 17.50 (Be ready).
