Things to do in Hamar

Our hotel is only a short walk from downtown, where you can find a wide selection of sights and experiences. Visit the beach “Koigen” for a late night swim, or the cathedral “domkirkeodden” from the middle age. Ankerskogen swimming pool is a great place to spend the day, with saunas and outdoor jacuzzies.


Mjøsfronten is next to the lake Mjøsa, with a broad range of foods. There are activities both on land and in water, and areas where you can just “be”. Relax in a hammock, try some new food from the foodtrucks, try a water activity or use the sauna on the lake.
