Q&A: Whats some cultural stereotypes of norway?

Question by Petter: Whats some cultural stereotypes of norway?
I’m norwegian myself and i’m just curious about what other people asosiate with my country.

half timbered houses, lederhosen, beer, etc…
Narrow brick buildings, dutch cap, cheese, etc…
Mountain chalets, tyrolean hats, fondue, etc…

Don’t include modern stereotypes like death metal, oil and welfare. Don’t mention vikings either. Kind’a going for that inbetween one.
These are stereotypes. Thei’re not ment be accurate.

I lived in Germany for many years and never saw half timbered houses ( be too cold in their harsh winters ) never saw lederhosen on a kraut either. Beer yes , but thats the same everywhere except Norway where its only permitted from certain places , and all but banned .Fjords are what define a Norwegian maybe ? Beautiful country .
