Pilegrimsleden | Oslo Pilgrim Center

Oslo Pilgrim Center

Oslo Pilgrim Center is located centrally in Oslo on the beautiful St. Hanshaugen. For most pilgrims, the center is a natural place to visit for information, advice, tips and guidance, before embarking on their pilgrimage on Gudbrandsdalsleden.

The natural starting point

The Pilgrim Centre of Oslo is one of six regional pilgrim centers along the Gudbrandsdalsleden. We are here to help you with information and guidance so that you can accomplish your goal on making your pilgrimage to Trondheim. – The regional pilgrim centers are funded by the State of Norway, our services are free of charge.

The pilgrim centre is located 50 meters from the Gamle Aker Church, the oldest church and building in Oslo dating from the 12th century, along the west path of the Gudbrandsdalsleden, 20 minutes on foot from the Central Station in Oslo.


I flotte lokaler inviterer vi Oslos befolkning og pilegrimer til pilegrimscafé hver pilegrimssesong. Serveringen varierer fra pilegrimsvafler, bakst og vår berømte pilegrimspølse. Dette er et tilbud som er verdt å få med seg enten man skal ut på langvandring eller ikke.

To be well prepared

At the Pilgrim Centre you get all the information you need for your pilgrimage. You can buy your pilgrim credential, badges and stickers to have on your rucksack or jacket. We have overview map and guidebooks in all available languages (Norwegian, German, Dutch, Italian, English). We have knowledge of temporary adjustments and changes to the path and the places of accommodation. – All it takes to make you well prepared!

Blessing of Pilgrims

At the Pilgrim Centre of Oslo you can also, independently of your confessional or religious belonging, receive the pilgrim's blessing. Experience how it is to be sent off on your pilgrimage the same way medieval pilgrims started their pilgrimage, with a blessing. Every pilgrim receiving the blessing also receives a blue or green ribbon to help you remember the blessing you have received. – When at the pilgrim centre, remember to ask if the pilgrim priest is available to give you the blessing!
