Outermost on the Domkirkeodden headland lie the ruins of old Hamar cathedral. Under the grand protective glass structure, medieval Hamar is communicated through words and music. Explore artefacts from the Viking era exhibited in Storhamarlåven, architect Sverre Fehn’s masterpiece, and experience one of the country’s largest herb gardens – a feast for the senses.
Stay at one of the town-centre hotels, and combine a visit to Domkirkeodden with a walk or bicycle ride along some of the Pilgrims’ Trail. Treat yourself to an exquisite meal at Restaurant Hamarstua – an à la carte restaurant set in the museum grounds – or bring a picnic to enjoy in the open-air museum. Refreshments can be purchased at the museum shop.
- Full access to lake Mjøsa; excellent swimming opportunities.
