Hedmarksmuseet Domkirkeodden

Just north of modern town Hamar lie the ruins of the old Hamar Cathedral, erected in connection with the creation of the diocese in 1152/53. The location at the highest point of the headland made the cathedral a mighty landmark visible from long distances when sailing at the lake Mjøsa.

Next to the cathedral ruins you find the remains of the medieval town, Hamarkaupangen, and the magnificent ruins of the cathedral inside a fabulous protective structure of glass and steel, “the glass cathedral”, is the main attraction.
