VIKING FEAST AT STIKLESTAD Innherreds beautiful landscape tells a rich history. Through glimpses of the past, we see the landscape of today with new eyes. Experience historic Innherred with the battleground from 1030 at Stiklestad, rock carvings, burial mounds, traces of World War II (WWII) and great museums. THE CRADLE OF NORWAY The nations birthplace is considered to be Stiklestad in Verdal, where St.Olav was killed in the battle of Stiklestad in 1030. This changed Norway and laid the foundation for modern Norway with Christianity, the judical system and values chracterising the country today. Stiklestad National Cultural Centre conveys this history through exhibitions, storytelling and events all through the year. ROCK CARVINGS AND BURIAL MOUNDS The Trondheimfjord has been both transportation route and larder for thousands of years. The infancy of settlement in Innherred can be seen at Bøla, with the 6000 year old rock carving “The Bøla Reindeer”, amongst others. At that time the sea level was higher and people were hunters. Innherred’s consentration of large burial mounds and graves testify to active trading with foreign countries. The Viking Age is characterised by strong chiefs concerned with Norse gods and blood revenge. You can learn more about the Viking Age at Stiklestad National Cultural Centre and Egge Museum.

The majority were Norwegian political prisoners, while the foreign prisoners primarily came from the USSR, Yugoslavia, Poland and Denmark. SUMMER MOUNTAIN FARMS IN SNÅSA Innherred has an active agriculture and summer farming has been an important part of this.

BERGUGLEBERGET, VERDAL This year marks 300 years since Norway was invaded by the Swedish army, also known as the Caroleans, something which left deep marks on Innherred. The invasion happened during the Great Nordic War from 1699-1721. Norway was at the time under the rule of Denmark, and even though there were a number of border episodes with small fights, the farmers in Trøndelag lived for the most part in peaceful coexistence with the Swedish Jämtene. In the summer of 1718, Karl XII had already attacked Norway a couple of times. In Trøndelag, General Vincent Budde took over the command. A large army of about 10,000 men gathered at Duved’s fortifications in Jemtland, under the command of General Lieutenant Carl Gustav Armfeldt. Sweden who had been at war for many years was a depleted country. In September, they came over the mountains and accross Hermansnasa mountain. Budde had barricaded himself at Stene Skanse (fortifications) where they believed the attack on Norway and Verdal would take place. Armfeldt however, planned an ambush and nearly succeded. At the last moment they were discovered and the Trønder army fled to Trondheim and Kirstiansen Fortress. The army that came over the mountains to Verdal, scattered under way as far north as Snåsa. Armfeldt himself stayed part of the time at Støre farm in Levanger. It was a large army of people and animals in need of food. Unfortunately, this was a year of crop failures and the army plundered and destroyed farms and crops, resulting in a weak and starving army returning to Sweden in the autumn of 1719. They left behind an equally tragic situation in the region. Many children in particular died due to hunger and disease that same year and years afterwards. Though the war did not cause a great loss of armies, the civilian population, however, suffered the effects. Stene Skanse is the last of the fortifications in Verdal, but there are still traces of the roads they built in the mountains by Grønningen. At Rinnleiret, The Friends of Rinnleiret has compiled a lot of the history. In addition, Verdal History Society, the Society for the Preservation of The Værdalske Fortifications and The Nordenfjeldske Dragoners Corps are working with Verdal Municipality to arrange various events in 2018 to mark the Carolean anniversary.

Inderøy has one of Norway’s most beautiful cultural landscapes, which together with the sea and special light at Inderøy, has inspired artists and authors for hundreds of years. Inderøy stretches from the E6 motorway over the fertile peninsula in the Trondheimsfjord via the strait of Skarnsundet to Mosvik on the Fosen Peninsula.
The municipal centre, Straumen, gained its name from one of the strongest tidal currents in the country – in the narrow neck of water between the Trondheim and Borgen fjords. Klokkarstu, an old red-painted building from the 1700s, is centrally located in Straumen between the Nils Aas Art studio, the Internet Café E@ and Jostu’s Candle Foundry. The old Rødbrygga also tells its story to the restaurant guests.
Prior to 2012 Inderøy and Mosvik were separate municipalities, but following a dynamic and good process they have now merged into one municipality. There are strong agricultural, forestry and cultural traditions here.
Facilities in the village of Mosvik include Mosvik Brygge, hair dresser and a grocery store.
The rich soil and high skies above Inderøy provide excellent produce for the small scale food farmers. Inderøysodd which is produced in Straumen, is a popular variation of the traditional Trønder dish. DEN GYLDNE OMVEI / THE GOLDEN ROAD The stretch of road known as The Golden Road takes you through beautiful cultural landscape along county road Fv761 (with side roads) in Inderøy municipality, and has a multitude of interesting sites with many family activities. Locally produced food, special places to stay and dine, local artists, exhibitions and attractions are among the experiences on The Golden Route. www.dgo.no
THE Muustrø park 4 The Muustrø Park is an idyllic place in the municipal centre of Straumen. Here you can use all your senses as you wander along the path. Large and small sculptures by Nils Aas and a mill are some of the attractions. Ringstu is among Inderøy’s oldest preserved buildings, and stands in the middle of the park. At the mouth of the river ”Grana” you can stroll over the Muusbrua bridge from 1816 – to the sound of the sculpture ‘Flounder’ by Nils Aas. www.flyndresang.no
Skarnsund brIDGE 3 Skarnsund bridge connects Mosvik at Fosen-peninsula to Inderøy. This is one of the world’s longest cable-stayed bridges, where the characteristic red cables reach into the sky like a gigantic harp. Under the bridge, in Skarnsundet Strait, you will find a favourite diving and fishing area. The orange sea plants give the impression of more tropical waters.

STEINKJER CITY CENTRE
Steinkjer is situated on the shores of the Beitstadfjord, the innermost arm of the Trondheimsfjord. Craftsmen and tradesmen settled in the area around Steinkjer farm. The traditional boat “Jekt” and garrison environment at Sannan brought new impulses and increased activity to Steinkjer, which gained city status in 1857. The wooden buildings built in the Empire style were destroyed in the town fire of 1900, replaced by beautiful towers and spires characteristic of the Art nouveau style. Steinkjer was bombed in April 1940. The reconstruction commenced in 1941 and was mostly completed by 1960.
planned under the leadership of Professor Sverre Pedersen. His three principles are easily visible in the townscape: Kongens gate, the main street, is a Baroque view axis with the fire station tower and Oftenåsen as central motifs. STEINKJER CHURCH 7 Jakob Weidemann, one of the most important artists in Norwegian modernism, was one of the forerunners of abstract art in Norway in the years following WWII. Steinkjer Church (AKA Weidemann’s Cathedral) is his masterpiece towering high with its 38 m freestanding clock tower. HISTORICAL STEINKJER 8 – BØLA, BARDAL, EGGE There are many rock carvings
THE RECONSTRUCTED TOWN The reconstructed town was
in the Bøla area, dating from the Stone Age. The best known of these are the 6000-year-old “Bøla reindeer” and the “Bøla man” on skis. You will also find bear and birds figures, a Stone Age settlement and a nice nature trail with a wonderful view of the lake Snåsavatnet. www.bolarein.no 9 At the Bardal field, there are more than 400 rock carvings dating from the Neolithic era and Bronze Age. Motifs here include humans, animals and boats etc. The figures are best viewed when the sun is low. Easily accessible and is situated near the farm Bardal. The Egge area has a long history as a chieftains’ seat, and several burial mounds and burial cairns are easily accessible. Egge Museum is an open air museum and arranges the Viking Festival every 2. year - in 2019: 12.-14. July
