About Kistefos

Welcome to Kistefos, Northern Europe`s largest sculpture park for contemporary art!

The history of Kistefos started with the old wood pulp mill more than 100 years ago. The industrial history is a running theme throughout the park and is inextricably linked to Kistefos` history. The river Randselva runs through the entire area and was in the early days the very foundation for the industry at the site. Today, it materializes as a beautiful and soothing signature.

When our new museum The Twist is finished, Christen Sveeas` vision of a symbiose between industry, sculpture and art will be complete.
