I am trying to find a way to make a buffer(?) around the train stations which follows the roads nearby. My thought is to make a visualization of how far from the trainstation you can get in 5, 10 and 15 minutes from the stations in normal walking pace - when following the roads.

Do anyone know how or if this can be done? I have managed to create a buffer with a linear value.

I am using the dataset called "Kartdata_Norge_UTM33_N50_FGDB" from kartverket (Norwegian mapping authority) in ArcMap 10.3.

What you are asking is what is referred to as a network service area. You need the Network Analyst extension installed and licensed to be able to use this functionality. Look at this help page to discover the types of analyses you can run.
