At the path.

The landscape opens up, and you can see the rolling and beautiful farmland of Stange Vestbygd and Mjøsa lake.

It is said that, from the area around Ramset, pilgrims heading north through Hedmark County could see both Stange church and Hamar and the cathedral promontory (Domkirkeodden). Since this was the first time they saw a church in this area, they were so joyous that they went down on their knees and praised God.

There are benches and table on site.

Having overcome the dangers in the desolated forests for finally reaching this wealthy church community called Skaun (The beautiful), must have been a fullfilment.

Feginsbrekka originates from fegin = happy. Another name for Feginsbrekka is 'Hill of Joy'. This was the point where the pilgrims could catch sight of a place, i.e. a church, for the first time, and where they would stop in joy and gratitude.
