at 12.00

The tour starts at 12.00 at the Four Trees on Torvet.

The watchman shows off the gems of Farsund town and tells about the rich history of Farsund municipality. 

Most cities in Norway and Europe already had watchmen 400 – 500 years ago, Farsund is the one town out of two in Norway that still has a watchman. The watchman was the police of the night and guarded the city from criminals, fire and any other situations that might arise. 

In 1996, Farsund got its watchman back, Watchman Elin has shown the municipality and told the story ever since.
