Lier – Lake Damtjern

I Lier kommune ligger et lite vann som de fleste kjører forbi på vei til eller fra et større shoppingsenter: ‘Liertoppen Shoppingcenter’, sentralt plassert mellom Drammen og Asker! Egentlig er dette et område avsatt til industriformål, men det er det vanskelig å tro når man ser bildene i denne lille foto-reportasjen.
Dette vannet benyttes da også til rekreasjon for de som måtte bo i nærheten og faktisk finnes her også visse fiskemuligheter.  Ved parkeringsplassen i sydenden av vannet pleier også en del tilreisende arbeidssøkende utlendinger å slå leir gjennom sommeren.
Damtjern er et relativt lite vann – ca 1 km langt. Fra parkeringsplassen i sydenden går en spaser- og sykkelvei langs hele vannet. Og mens noen prøver fiskelykken, er det andre som griller og koser seg, eller som benytter anledningen til en forfriskende dukkert.

In the municipality of ‘Lier’ lies a small lake that most people pass on their way to or from a large shopping center named ‘Liertoppen Shopping-center’, centrally located half way between the City of Drammen and the City of Asker. This area is actually set aside for industrail purposes, but looking at my pictures in this photo report, it may be hard to believe? This little lake – named ‘Damtjern’ – is also used for recreation and leisure activities. In the Southern end of the lake, there is a small parking lot popular among people from Europe searching for jobs through summer.
The Lake Damtjern is a relatively small lake – approximately 3/4 mile long. From the parking lot and along the fulll length of the lake runs a bike/walking track, and whilst som try their hand at fishing, others will be grilling or simply have refreshing swim.

  1. I am amazed at how the water looks like glass in all but the last two pictures. So calming and peaceful

      Well, it’s a rather small lake though? only 3/4 of a mile long and surrounded by rather high hills – well sheltered. There’s rarely any strong winds up here!

    It is lovely and I’m sure the city dwellers appreciate this beautiful scenery in an industrial area.

    Beautiful scenery. It’s hard to imagine the lake being used for industrial purposes.
