Sigrid Undset lived at Bjerkebaek, Lillehammer, from 1919 until she died in 1949. The new house has become so beautiful you have to see it to believe it. (...) I couldn't possibly get it any closer to my taste. Sigrid Undset (1882-1949) moved to Lillehammer in 1919, and this was where she lived together with her three children. She created a very special home in two old wooden buildings which had once belonged to farms in the Gudbrandsdalen valley. Around the buildings she planted a stunning garden which was both useful and beautiful. She called her home Bjerkebaek. This was where she wrote her novels about the medieval characters Kristin Lavransdatter (1920-1922) and Olav Audunsson (1925-1927). In 1928, she was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature for her “powerful description of Nordic life in the middle ages. Her work ranges from contemporary and historical novels to short stories and articles. She made her literary debut in 1907 with the novel “Fru Marta Oulie”. Sigrid Undset converted to Catholicism in 1924. This is reflected in a number of the essays and contemporary novels she wrote in the 1930s and 40s. In 1940, Sigrid Undset had to leave Norway due to her stand against the Nazis. She lived in the USA during the war, where campaigned tirelessly for the liberation of Norway and its allies through her articles and lectures. After the war she made her way back to Bjerkebaek, which had been vandalised by the Germans. Sigrid Undset died in 1949. « less

The mail will get through: Which one of us has never rushed to the letter box in the hope of finding a letter or postcard from a friend? When one is waiting for you, it is a real pleasure. Often, not much thought is given to the people who make sure the letters arrive. The museum provides an insight into over 360 years of postal history. Through tableaux, pictures, text and film, you can follow the development of the postal service from the days when each letter was sent by messenger and right up to today's electronic communication via e-mail and SMS. 1854 saw the opening of Norway's first railway line, which ran from Christiania to Eidsvoll. Right from the start it was decided that the trains should carry mail. Eventually, the trains had special postal carriages and this allowed for the mail to be sorted en route. The “Mail on Rail” exhibition provides an insight into the postal services on board the train. A letter will not get far without a stamp, and in the main building at Maihaugen visitors can see every stamp issue from 1855 to the present day. « less

The facilities also include a golf centre with 2 golf simulators, a putting green, a golf lounge and a driving range with 8 mats. Our fitness centre offers almost everything needed for weight training. Equipment for most muscle groups is available. We can also offer our customers training advice free of charge. Squash: We are pleased to be able to offer you 2 modern squash courts, and all the necessary equipment is available for hire. Squash is an extremely intense form of training. Annual squash tournaments are also organised. Golf centre: Hakons Hall has its own indoor golf centre with 2 Innesvingen golf simulators, a putting area, a driving range featuring 8 mats and a golf lounge. The golf simulator allows the player to hit the ball towards a film screen which projects the hole you are playing on. Ball speed and direction - seen in relation to simulated wind strength and direction - are assessed automatically by means of infrared sensors. As the ball hits the screen, it continues onto the course as if you were playing for real. Details such as length, remaining distance to the flag, and the number of strokes you have made thus far in the game and on the hole you are playing are also provided on the screen. Where the ball lands will be shown automatically, and your next shot will be from that spot. The golf simulator provides an extremely realistic golfing experience, and can be enjoyed no matter what the weather is like! Up to 8 persons can play on the same simulator, but we recommend that only 4 people play together at a time. Estimated time on a simulator is 1 hour per person for 18 holes, but you will probably need some time getting used to the system as you start. Golf club membership is not required in order to play a round on the golf simulator. Next to the golf simulator is a 9-hole putting where you can practice putting before trying out the golf simulators. Golf clubs available for hire. « less
