Experience the atmosphere of beautiful Aulestad! The Nobel laureate...

Experience the atmosphere of beautiful Aulestad! The Nobel laureate Bjornstjerne Bjornson lived here with his family from 1875. The home is one of the best preserved artist homes in Norway.

Aulestad offers guided tours in the home, various exhibitions and a lovely garden.

Cafe with famous blueberry pancakes, like Bjornson himself was very fond of.

Approximately 18 km from Lillehammer, follow signs from the main road E6 north of Lillehammer. From E6 take highway 225 towards Gausdal, and follow the road past the center of Follebu to Aulestad.

Free parking lots by the road. There are bus connection from the train station in Lillehammer.
