Stress free shopping in Gamlebyen

Stress free shopping in unique surroundings

Gamlebyen is a vibrant part of Fredrikstad, at centre for retail that offers good food and great shops. This combined with a unique ambiance will make you lower your shoulders and forget the stress of every day life.

Here you will find those special shops that you don´t find everywhere else, and you will find the little treasures other shops can´t offer. Kortevaren, the oldest shop in the town, established in 1939 offers toys, interior, kitchen ware, office supplies, soap, sewing equipment and yarn and handkerchiefs. If they don´t have it, you don´t need it.


Here you will find a book store, a delicatessen, clothes shops and boutiques, like the design shop Syr Kjole, which creates dresses, often in a retro style. Kunst med puls, the tattoo shop with a unique method and Ølgaarden, the beer place with its enormous collection of beer, including home brewed beer, contributes to this exiting bouquet of shopping possibilities! There are also many exhibitions, galleries, artisan work shops and outlets with everything from ceramics and sculptures to needle work. There are also many places to have a nice rest and a snack. Choose between places like Mormors Café, Gamlebyen Café&Catering, Majoren, Tamburen, Peppes, Gamlebyen Kulturhus, Café Magenta, Råde Bakeri or a quiet moment on the ramparts.


Gamlebyen is open all year round, with shops open on Sundays, outdoor markets on the weekend and Christmas Market during the weekends before Christmas. Every season has its own charm in Gamlebyen, and should be visited all year round.
