At the path

Hamarkaupangen on the cathedral promontory was a medieval town and an ecclesiastical centre. It was the site of Hamar Cathedral, the Bishop's castle, Saint Olav's monastery, a herb garden, hospital and school. In the 16th century, the town was abandoned and large parts of the castle and the cathedral were destroyed. Domkirkeodden and the Bishop of Hamar were very powerful, forming a centre of power between Oslo and Nidaros. It was natural for many people, both pilgrims and other travellers, to break their journey and stay overnight at St Olav's monastery on the promontory. The cathedral promontory is still a natural hub for walks.

Today you can experience medieval Hamar, the open air museum, exhibitions, famous architecture and the country’s biggest organic herb garden.

Pilgrims with a Pilgrim´s Passport get free entrance to Hamardomen,. For entrance to other other sections of the museum; NOK 50,-.
