Gressholmen airport was for the years 1927 through 1939 the location of the main airport for Oslo, until the construction of Fornebu airport. The airport was only for seaplanes. The ramp with rail tracks and the hangar are reused for boat storage and maintenance. There is railway point with the big track gauge.
The island is easily accessible from Oslo with the local ferries. The access point is on the North side.
A big part of the island is a nature reserve.
