Lobben Gård

You will find the farm Lobben in peaceful and rural surroundings above Skotselv, in the municipality of Øvre Eiker. To the south-east you can catch a glimpse of the hills above the Drammen river and to the west you will find Holtefjell - the mountain Holte.

Take the road through Skotselv and follow the road to Bingen up the Hærehøgda. After about 4 kilometers (from Knivedalen/R35) you will find the signboard indicating Nedre Lobben to the right of the road. After a few hundred meters birches on both sides of the road will welcome you into the pleasant courtyard where the houses lie surrounded by majestic trees.

Lobben is an old farm, written records tell us about farming here already in the twelfth century . There are several grave-mounds on the property and tools dating back to the historical period about 400 A.D. have been found there.

Today the farming consists mainly of the production of corn and seeds and some forestry. In the stable you will find the horse Prinsen - the Prince. On the grazing land there are a few sheep, and in the courtyard some hens are looking peacefully for something to eat.
