Christmas Feeling in the Glass Cathedral

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 and singing to help you lower your shoulders in a hasty pre-Christmas period, and hopefully you will get the good Christmas feeling.

Christmas Market and Activities

Sunday 9th of December 12:00 - 16:00 we welcome you all to our traditional "Jul i Borggården". The English translation of this name will be something like "Christmas in the Courtyard" referring to the activities going on in the ruins of the yard of the bishop's residence. We invite children (and their parents) to come and join us in traditional games around the christmas tree, listen to old tales told by the fireplace, create their own christmas decorations and other fun. You may also buy yourself a treat of Norwegian christmas porridge, and hopefully there will be carolers. There will also be a small market where you can buy handcrafted gifts, christmas cookies, arts and crafts etc.
