If you visiting Sandsfossen and the Salmon Studio, do consider visiting Fossheim and enjoy a quiet moment on a bench in its gardens.

 

Fossheim was built in 1936–1937 by local sheriff Rasmus Rasmussen. The house included his residence and office, and it had a jail in the basement. The architect was Arnstein Arneberg (1882-1961), one of Norway’s most highly reputed in the first half of the 20th century. Arneberg’s works include Oslo City Hall, and the interior of the United Nations building. The Municipality of Suldal municipality purchased the building in the 1970s, and it now houses the Tourist Information Office.

 

Nearby attractions are Sandsfossen falls and Salmon Studio, and the Suldalslågen river.
