Christmas Feeling in the Glass Cathedral

  • Ranveig Nordbryhn / Anno Domkirkeodden

When dusk is falling we light candles and invite you to a calm and restful time surrounded by Medieval ruins in the peaceful glass cathedral. There will be storytelling, singing and music to help you lower your shoulders in a hasty pre-Christmas period, and hopefully you will get the good Christmas feeling.

This event takes place at 4:30 pm on the following weekends:
November 26th + 27th
December 3rd + 4th
December 10th + 11th
December 17th

Tickets can be bought in the Museum Shop or online soon...

Løtenbygningen - the Christmas House

The two laste weekends of November (19th + 20th and  26th + 27th) there will be a great opportunity to admire and buy different local arts and crafts in the cosy, red house down by the lake. The association responsible for this event is "Brukshåndverkerne i Innlandet", and after two years covid-break they are looking forward to invite people and show their works again.

Lussi - a family musical

  • Halvard Bjørkås

Lussi is an evil fairy from Norwegian tradition. In this musical performed by local children and youths you get to know more about the traditions and what people used to believe in the old days, like why it was important not to perform any work with circular movements the day of winter solstice, or what could happen to those who did not mark their doors and cattle with a cross. The play is in Norwegian, but with lots of nice songs and music, so this can be a good experience even if you do not know the Norwegian language all too well.

  • Halvard Bjørkås

The musical is played on December 10th and December 11th at 4:00 pm.

Tickets may be bought online in a while, or in the Christmas shop if there are any left...
