View of Wittgenstein

Visit the site where the renowned Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein periodically lived. In 1921 he published the book Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, today considered one of the most important standard works of modern philosophy. Parts of the book were written in his house here in Skjolden.

The house originally stood on a shelf atop a 30-metre high steep cliff above Lake Eidsvatnet. It used to be referred to as Little Austria by locals thanks to its famous resident.

The trip to the Wittgenstein site starts at Vassbakken Kro & Camping.
