Lysaker is a village in the municipality of Bærum .

Lysaker borders in the east on the Norwegian capital Oslo and in the south directly on the Lysakerfjord , a branch of the Oslofjord between the Fornebu and Bygdøy peninsula. Two important traffic axes , the Drammen Line and the Europastraße 18 , lead through Lysaker.

Originally, the place was a preferred residential area, the most famous inhabitant of which was Fridtjof Nansen on his Polhøgda estate between 1902 and 1930 , the seat of the Fridtjof Nansen Institute since 1957 . Since the end of the 1970s, however, the townscape has mainly been determined by commercial areas and office buildings . A park-like green belt has remained on the Lysakerelva River.

Important local employers are the industrial group Aker Solutions , the frozen food manufacturer Findus and the shipping company Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics . The Norwegian representation of international companies such as Apple , Fujifilm and Broadnet and an administrative building of the regional airline Widerøe are located in Lysaker, as is the headquarters of the telecommunications company Tandberg .
