Lutvann

Arrival and parking

By car, drive the E6 to Trosterud in Oslo, and follow Dr. Dedichen’s road all the way up until you get a suitably large parking space on the left side, just to the left of Lutvann military camp. Parking is free. By public transportation, take bus 69 and get off at Ole Messelt’s road.

From both the car park and the bus stop, walk past the military camp, south, and find the path right by (well marked). Continue the path inwards until you see Lutvann.

About Lutvann

Lutvann is located in Østmarka in Oslo right by Lutvann military camp, 205 meters above sea level. At its deepest, the water is 55 meters, it was dammed up three meters in the south in 1914.

The name comes from the homestead Lut which was under Trosterud farm, later under Sarabråten. In 1897, the water was bought by the municipality to be used as drinking water, and the area was therefore demolished. The water outlet was closed in 1974 and is now only reserve drinking water. In 1997-1998, there was a major leak here due to the construction of the train tunnel Romeriksporten. The water is now used for fishing with fish species such as trout, perch, Norwegian char, Canada char, brook trout, stingray, and trout. There is also a nice swimming area on the north side of the water, right next to the military camp and just under 1 km from a free car park by the military camp.

Rating

Lutvann is a nice lake for bathing and fishing, just a short distance from the bus stop, subway, and parking lot. There is a well-established area for swimming for everyone, including children and the disabled, and the toilet is located nearby. There are also opportunities for fishing, as well as nice walks in the area such as around Lutvann (about 5km / 1 hour), up to Haukåsen Radar, over to Nøklevannet, Mariholtet or Rustadsaga to name a few. There are also many places to hang up your hammock.
