Brunkollen o / Abborvann Map

Brunkollen was built by the Germans during the Second World War. It has been run as a serving place since 1948 and is owned by the Municipality of Bærum.


Brunkollen's hiking and running opportunities are many. Here is described a trip that goes through Abborvann and Haslumseter Kappel.

From the clubhouse on Fossum you follow the road East towards Akerselva. Here you turn North-Westand after a 1,3 Km you reach the forest car road from Fossum clubhouse. Follow this road until you have reached Østernvann. Østernvann is a popular bathing place and there is nothing in the way of starting this trip with a dip...

From Burudvann you follow a trail on the right hand side that takes you to Abborvann and Triungsvann. Before reaching Abborvann, the signes said that you have to go out on the dirt road, just stay on the trail and you will get the opportunity to have som more km's around Abborvann with trails. After running around Abborvann you follow the dirt road a couple of hundred meters before seing signes towards Halsumseter chapel. Follow the trail and signs until you reach Haslumseter. The chapel is one of the major junctions in the Bærumsmarka, with trails in all directions.

From here, select the blue path that follows the elevation. After 1km or so you will reach Brunkollen and its famous buns.
