Visit Hamar's cathedral of the 12th century, Domkirkeodden, and the Hedmark Museum.
The ruins of Hamar's old cathedral witness of the times of Christianization in Norway. Here you will find the ruins of the medieval cathedral and the bishop's residence from 1152 on the beautiful Museum grounds on the outskirts of Hamar.
The ruins can be visited in Hamar, at the far end of Domkirkeodden at Mjøsa, Norway's largest inland lake. The cathedral's location at the highest point on the headland made it a prominent landmark, visible from afar to sailors on Lake Mjøsa.
The museum is comprised of archaeological exhibitions, a botanical garden and an outdoor museum with about 60 buildings from around Hedemarken County. The cathedral ruins are protected by a much-discussed protective structure in glass and steel, called "the Hamar Dome", which is an attraction in itself.
Open every day in summer season. Groups all year when booked in forehand.
Visit the beautiful open-air museum and the monastic herb garden, and admire the celebrated architecture of Sverre Fehn.
