Why is art history so rich in little Nesbyen?

Sorority writer Ove Gude and his family lived in Old Nes for a ten-year period in the mid-1800s and his son Hans Gude, who became one of Norway's great national romantic painters, painted many famous paintings here. He helped many Norwegian and foreign artists make their way to Nesbyen. In the Sorenskrivergården they were given accommodation by an art-interested host and here they were inspired by the life and the dramatic nature along the Rukkedøla river. On their way to western Norway, they found a small piece of national romantic Norway. Nesbyen became an important stopover and also became the starting point for study trips around Hallingdal. In this way, Nesbyen became central to the national romantic period in Hallingdal in the middle of the 19th century.

In old Nes you can today walk in the footsteps of these great artists. At selected places large copies of the pictures that were painted show the landscape they were inspired by.

The Nesbyen Art Trail (formerly called "In Gudes Footprints") starts at the Sorenskriver court, but you can start from the Hallingdal Museum.
