Asker Municipality offers a wide variety of cultural, sports and recreation possibilities. Asker Culture House, located in the centre of Asker town, has a spacious library - Asker bibliotek, a cinema and a theatre hall. Beside the railway station, you will find the newly-renovated Trafo Kunsthall. Asker Culture School at scenic East Asker Farm offers classes in music, dance, art, sculpture and more to young people up to the age of 20.

Asker is known to be a “green municipality” because of the abundance and proximity of forests, farmland, beaches and lakes, as well as extensive, well-maintained walking and ski trails.
