STIKLESTAD NATIONAL CULTURAL CENTRE

Innherred’s 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 interesting museums. THE CRADLE OF NORWAY The nation’s birthplace is considered to be Stiklestad in Verdal, where Olav Haraldsson (later St.Olav) was killed in the battle of Stiklestad in 1030. This changed Norway and laid the foundation for modern Norway with Christianity, the judicial system and values characterising the country today. Stiklestad National Cultural Centre conveys this history through exhibitions, storytelling and events throughout 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 concentration 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. MONASTERY RUINS There was a Cistercian monastery at Okkenhaug in Levanger at the end of 11th century. Today we only see remains of the monastery church itself. But there is a modern Maria ­Monastery nearby, founded by the same citeaux-order. Munkeby Herberge with farm shop, cafe and accommodation is located in between the two monasteries. THE TRONDHEIMSFJORDEN AS A TRANSPORT ROUTE The sea has been a transport route since time immorial for the people around the Trondheimfjorden. The trade was one of the foundations for the creation of cities and commercial 12

THE HISTORICAL SLOOP JEKTA PAULINE

c­ entres. Levanger city was well established already in the 1500s. During the 17.- and 18. century, the shipping industry gained importance for the retail trade in Innherred, with agricultural products, fish and lumber being transported. The ships were also an important means of transport. We have the world’s last sailing sloop, Jekta Pauline, here in Innherred which is one of the vessels most worthy of grade II lisitings in Norway. Kjerknesvågen kai in Inderøy is her home port. THE RECONSTRUCTED TOWN OF STEINKJER Steinkjer was bombed during WWII and almost all of the city was laid in ruins, but thankfully no lives were lost. The city was rebuilt during and after the war and Steinkjer is one of the most successful and best preseved revival cities. THE FALSTAD CENTRE Falstad Institution for the Upbringing of Troubled Boys was established in 1895. In the fall of 1941 the German Nazis seized the building and established SS-Strafgefangenenlager Falstad, as a political prison camp. Over 4.200 individuals from at least 15 nations were imprisoned here during the war, and more than 200 prisoners were executed and buried in mass graves in the nearby forest. Today, the Falstad Centre is a museum, war memorial and human rigths centre and conveys the history of war. The historic prison camp can be experienced virtually through unique digital technology. It is 75 years since the liberation of Norway and this will be celebrated through various events throughout the year. SUMMER MOUNTAIN FARMS IN SNÅSA Innherred has an active agriculture and summer farming has been an important part of this. In Snåsa, mountain farming was very important during the 17. and 18. century. There may have been as many as 300 summer farms in the village at that time. Now there are between 15-20 open mountain summer farms every summer in Snåsa. https://en.visitinnherred.com/historic-innherred 13

The Chieftain seat Egge - Egge Museum Through a guided tour you get better aquainted with the old chieftain seat Egge Farm, situated in the midst of the old power centre. The old chiefs Olve Grjotgardsson and Kalv Arnessson once ruled here. Sigrid from Bjarkøy is also part of this story. Olve was chief of Mære. Egge’s history is intertwined with a power struggle over royal power in Norway, Olav Haraldsson’s history and the change of religion from paganism to Christianity. Mære church Mære church is located at the same site as the old heathen place of worship. In the summer of 1021, the farmers were gathered at Mære for a blood sacrifice and in connection with this many dramatic events arose in the conflict between old and new faith. The Battle of Mære and the killing of Olve is ironically the first of many events that turned the chieftains aganst the king. Stiklestad Nationale Cultural Centre Olav and the royal army met an abundant peasant army led by Kalv Arnesson at Stiklestad, 29. July 1030. Olav was killed and the story goes that the king fell where the altar in Stiklestad church was later built. Only one year after his death, Olav was elevated to sainthood. The battle changed Norway and laid the foundation for the modern Norway we see with Christianity, the judiciary and the values that characterise the country today. During a guided tour you learn more about what happened during the battle, after the battle and see Stiklestad church. https://en.visitinnherred.com/footseps-peasant-army

THE BØLA ROCK CARVINGS,STEINKJER

Traces of people who lived their lives in Innherred hundreds of years before our era can be experienced in several places in the form of, i.e, burial grounds and rock carvings. The people who inhabited Norway followed the ice after the last ice age. They hunted and collected food as is evidenced in the rock carvings: At Bøla (Steinkjer), Northern Europe’s best known rock carving you can see a life-sized reindeer. At the Bardal field, we have about 400 carvings, several of them have hunting and fishing motifs. In Kvennavika (Inderøy), we have the Nordic region’s largest collection of fishing figures. At the Helge field (Steinkjer) you can see burial mounds and monumental stones. The size of the burial mounds tells us that it was people with power and high social status who were buried here. There are five large burial mounds gathered in one place here indicating that there must have been a significant centre of power in this area during the Iron Age. At Alstadhaug church (Levanger) there is also a large burial mound, Olvishaugen. Olvis means “the almighty”, and there has probably been a place of worship and a governing assembly here. With its 55 m in diameter and height of 6 m, it is one of the country’s largest burial mounds. War has left its mark on Innherred and you can see defenses from different periods and memorials from World War II. One of the most special fortifications we have is The Værdalske Fortifications. They are located on the mountainside along Fv72 (Verdal) and were built in the years 1909 - 1911. It was built to defend the country from the east. The fortifications is reached via a hiking trail, over bridges and up stairs and ladders, through historic landscapes with rushing river rapids, lush vegetation and steep mountain walls. The Falstad forest at Ekne (Levanger) is today a protected memorial in honour of those who were executed in the forest in the years 1942-43. You can see several memorials for the victims, and follow trails past the pyramids that mark the former burial sites. A poignant place to visit. https//en.visitinnherred.com/cultural-monuments

Blåfjella – Skjækerfjella/Låarte-Skæhkere National Park is one of the largest national parks in Norway and is a fabulous area for those who are into hiking. The landscape is characterised by low mountain areas with gentle terrains.

Vegetation is also characterised by large marshes, sparse forest and bare mountain. Midtiklumpen mountain at 1333 m.a.s.l. is the national park’s highest mountain. The national park isn’t just wilderness – it is also a cultural landscape formed through generations of South Sami reindeer husbandry. In conjunction with the national park, there is often talk about “the four mountain farms”in Snåsa: Holden, Gressåmoen, Gaundalen and Gjefsjøen. For those wanting multi day hiking trips, this is a very popular route. Directions to entrance points to the park: Verdal: Road 757 towards Vera. Trails into the park from Skjækerfossen, Storlunet and Vera. Steinkjer: Road 762 towards Ogndalen to Lustadvatnet and Norway’s Geographical Mid point.

Ice fishing is both fun and makes the polar darkness more exciting. The ice fishing sea season begins as soon as the ice has settled on the lake. Of course, it must be thick enough to withstand your weight. Ice of 15 cm or more is usually thick enough. If you are unsure, consult someone experienced. To examine the thickness, it is advisable to drill holes on the way out. Remember ice drills and warm clothes! At Innherred, there are many great fishing waters up in the mountains, close to roads or on the sea ice. Tips for fishing on the sea ice: Hjelbotn in the Beitstadfjorden. Tips for fresh water ice fishing: the Lakes Grønningen, Langvatnet or Heggsjøen in Snåsa, the lakes in Skjækra mountians, the Lakes Mokkavatnet or Leksdalsvatnet in Verdal/Steinkjer, Lake Vulusjøen in Levanger.

SJØPARKEN

Welcome to the city in the middle of Trøndelag where you will find a variety of experiences, shopping, fjord and mountain walks, tranquility and historical experiences. A city with a protected city centre, and a surrounding area characterised by agriculture and nature. The E6 and the train line Nordlandsbanen pass through the municipality and Trondheim Airport Værnes is 45 minutes away. The tourist information can be found in the town hall’s reception area. HISTORIC MARKET PLACE Levanger is a historic marketplace with major trading dating back to Medieval times with our neighbours Sweden. People from Jamtland came here and exchanged goods and horses with people who lived along the coast in Norway. Levanger was the innermost ice-free harbor in the Trondheim Fjord. When the railway came around the year 1900, it took over the traffic between Jämtland and Trøndelag, and Levanger’s role as a trading place diminished. In modern 50

times, the Marsimartnan winter market is taken up to preserve the memory of this Jämtland trade. Today, the city center is characterized by local galleries and a number of shops and cafés. Much of the trade has moved to the Magneten shopping centre, which is within walking distance south of the city center. 11 HISTORIC WOODEN HOUSE TOWN Levanger is one of Norway’s most interesting wooden house towns and represents a major national cultural heritage value.

The center has a continuous park feature which aims to prevent the spread of fire. Today, a total of 157 properties in the city centre are listed as protected.

The agriculture, forestry and cultural traditions are strong here. NORWAYS MOST ATTRACTIVE TOWN 2020 In the autumn of 2020, Straumen was chosen as Norway’s most attractive town and thus won the attractive city award. Straumen highlights the importance of being aware of and magnifying the place’s resources and qualities, and shows that this can be the starting point for place and community development with sustainability, inclusion and community at the forefront. 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. 64

Inderøy is centrally located, just 1,5 hrs drive from both Trondheim and Namdalen. The lush peninsula also has a long shoreline, great outdoor recreational areas and is rich in history. Inderøy is close to both Trondheim Airport Værnes and the railway line. 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 Trondheimfjorden and the Borgenfjorden. In the idyllic town centre you will find galleries, cafe and cosy niche shops. The small red-painted house Klokkarstu from the 1700s (which houses the second-hand shop Kjerringa me ’Straumen) is located here, together with Nils Aas Kunst­verksted, Galleri Mitsel, Inderøy Landhandleri, Inderøy Slakteri, Marens Bakeri and Jostu Lysstøperi.

Mosvik museum is located in the old Grande school and has an exhibition of old agricultural tools from the village. At Røra you will find God Mat Lokalt, a shop with locally produced food from all over Trøndelag that also serves light refreshments. 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.

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.

HÅVARD ZEINER THE CULTURAL TRAIL STRAUMEN - VANGSHYLLA

THE SKARNSUNDET BRIDGE connects Mosvik at the Fosen-­peninsula to the rest of 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 the Skarnsundet Strait, you will find a favourite diving and fishing area. The orange sea plants give the impression of more tropical waters. The bridge was listed for protection in 2008 by the National Antiquarian. Close to the bridge is Skarnsundet Fjord Centre, of interest for fishing enthusiasts. GLAMPING AND FOREST CAMP

If you love nature and the season and you are looking for tranquility and a magical experience, Villnis in Sandvolland is perfect for you. At Villnis you can stay in a luxurious canvas tent with a double bed and a wood stove. In the tent you can take in the sounds of the forest and enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee or go for a 66

walk nearby. CULTURAL AND HIKING TRAILS Enjoy one of the many cultural- and hiking trails in Inderøy. Try the ­cultural trail Straumen-Vangshylla, the Northug­runden, Letnes Cultural Trail or the trail up to Storknuken Mountain. Many also choose a biking holiday in Inderøy. On bike or by feet, explore ancient thoroughfares from fjord to fjord and through beautiful landscape interspersed with burial mounds and ­monoliths. Between hiking and cycling you have plenty of time for gallery visits, shopping and enjoying good food. If you are visiting in the winter, we recommend visiting Petter Northug ski stadium close to Straumen, Vårlonken in Mosvik or Solbergrunden ski trail in Framverran. National Bike route 1 “The coastal route” follows the coast from Svinesund to Kirkenes and at Innherred the route passes through Meltingen and Inderøy to Steinkjer.

Steinkjer municipality

STEINKJER CITY

Steinkjer municipality extends from high mountains in the east to the coast and Inner Fosen in the west, along the entire north side of the Beistadfjorden. Steinkjer city is situated on the shores of the Beitstadfjorden, the innermost arm of the Trondheimsfjord. The Steinkjer farm is the common thread in the ­history of Steinkjer from the Saga times. The city emerged when craftsmen and tradesmen settled in the area around Steinkjer farm. The traditional sloop “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 78

commenced in 1941 and was mostly completed by 1965. THE RECONSTRUCTED TOWN The reconstructed town was 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 mountain as ­central motifs. 7 STEINKJER CHURCH 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. MINING HISTORICAL ­CULTURAL HERITAGE 37 Fosdalen’s quarries in Malm are northern Europe’s deepest iron ore mine, and were in operation until 1997. This laid the foundation for prosperity and made Malm


one of the country’s richest municipalities. Malm was merged with Verran in 1964, and Steinkjer in 2020. HISTORICAL STEINKJER 29 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 a the Children’s Viking Festival every 2. year next time in 2022. www.eggemuseum.no

8 At Bøla, there are many rock carvings, 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

The Bardal field features more than than 400 rock carvings dating from the Neolithic era and Bronze Age. Motifs 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.

year round. The open air theater “The Apples in Messehagen” takes you back to 1960s Malm and lets you experience the mining history up close. Performances are held in September 2022. There are regularly various festivals and events such as the Hilmar Festival, the Steinkjer Festival, Slabberas, Winter fest, Steinkjermartna Summer Market, to name a few. At Dampsaga Cultural Centre there are also cultural events throughout the year. OUTDOOR RECREATION 30 Behold the the beautiful views and nature on top of Oftenåsen, where the world’s largest garden chair is located. While walking along some of the many trails to the top, you will encounter various wooden fairytale sculptures. Follaheia is a family friendly summit hike where you will be rewarded by a fabulous view of Innherred when you reach the top.

BÅSDALSVOLLEN

Snåsa municipality

BÅSDALSVOLLEN SUMMER MOUNTAIN FARM

Snåsa / Snåasen tjïelte is large in size, larger than the county of Vestfold and a paradise for those who love outdoor activities, hunting and fishing. Snåsa town centre, with most functions within trade and service, is located at the end of Snåsavatnet in the northeast. The location of the centre was controlled by the railway. When it arrived in 1926, the “station town” was established. 28

Previously, while steamboats connected Snåsa with the outside world, the beautiful “inland port city” Viosen was the natural centre. The settlement goes right down to the water’s edge and is characterized by distinctive architecture and venerable Vonheim – a protected assembly hall from 1901, as a symbol of good traditions for cultural heritage and community life. From E6 it is just 7 km to the town centre. 86

An alternative route from Steinkjer (just 45 min by car) is road 763, which takes you through a diverse landscape and with fine viewpoints of Lake Snåsavatnet. Along the route you will find Jørstadelva river, Tangen War Memorial and Bølareinen rock carvings. Agriculture and forestry are the main industries, but in recent years i­ndustrial jobs have increased. SOUTH SAMI CULTURE Snåsa is at the centre of the South Sami culture, and has several Sami institutions, a kindergarten, school and dormitory for South Sami children. Snåsa municipality is involved in the management of Sami language and culture. Several state jobs are linked to the activities of the Sami parliament. 36 At Saemien Sijte, a South Sami Museum and Cultural Centre, you can learn more about the southSami culture and history.


The muesum is open yearround and is well worth a visit. The museum opens in a new location in June. Modern reindeer husbandry is part of the economic base and the cultural landscape is beautifully surrounded by farmland, powerful wilderness - a paradise for outdoor life, fishing and hunting. SUMMER MOUNTAIN FARMS Snåsa has rich traditions of summer mountain farming, and these traditions are today kept alive by around 15 mountain farms open during the summer season. The cows graze on fresh herb-rich grass that gives the milk and mountain farm products special qualities. At the mountain farms, you can experience peace of mind and a magical atmosphere - and enjoy a rich selection of mountain farm products produced on the premises. There are summer farms both along the Lake Snåsavatnet and high up in the mountains. Maybe your visit will coincide with the caring of the animals or when the milk maid seperates delicious cream from the fat mountain milk. Maybe you visit the day when the gadfly has caused Rosalyn the cow to be rebellious...... or maybe you come when nothing happens and there is just peace and quiet.

GJERSTADHUSET MUSEUM Not far from Saemien Sijte and Snåsa Church is the childhood home of the psychic “Snåsa Man”, Joralf Gjerstad. It has been restored to its former glory and looks just as it did throughout Gjerstad’s childhood. Pay a visit to the house and see the photos and honours Joralf and his wife Signe have received. At Snåsa hotel there is a “Joralf museum” in the form of an exhibition about Joralf’s life and work. A bust of the Snåsa man, pictures and newspaper clippings are some of the thigs you can experience. PLACES OF WORSHIP 39 Snåsa Church is a cruciform church in neo-Gothic style. The oldest part, which today is the choir and sacristy, was built in the first half of the 13th century. Megard church site is an open-air church built at St. Olavskilden in Imsdalen. The water from the spring has throughout history had a reputation for having ­healing powers.

VISIT INNHERRED SNÅSAVATNET

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES Almost half the municipality is protected through Blåfjella - Skjækerfjella National Park, one of Norway’s largest national parks and a great starting point for anyone who wants to go hiking both in summer and winter. “Walking the mountain farms” is a real concept in Snåsa. It involves a multi-day hike through Snåsas stunning mountain areas with accommodation and refreshments at some of the 4 mountain farms. There are 4 mountain farms; Gjefsjøen, Holden, Gaundalen and Gressåmoen. Snåsa Mountain Board is responsible for managing Crown lands in Snåsa, Norway’s second largest commons. They also rent out cabins that are excellent bases for hunting, fishing and outdoor activities. Additionally, the 2000 fishing waters in the municipality should tempt the fishing enthusiast. Lake Snåsavatnet, the 6th largest lake in Norway, offers very good trout - and char fishing, in addition to being excellent for canoeing and

88

kayaking. There are 5 marked paddle routes - where you can paddle among islets and reefs, in small rivers and open water. Along Lake Snåsavatnet there are several great accommodation venues where you can stay close to sights and places to eat. Such as Garveriet Kafe og Gjenbruksutsalg, Snåsakroa, Kafe Midtpunktet and På Hjørnet. Snåsa municipality has several marked bike routes. One of which is the route Sentrumsrunden. While biking this route you can also visit Bergsåsen. 34

Bergsåsen Nature Reserve, located in the middle of Snåsa town centre, featuring many fine trails and view points. Both here and Finsåsmarka have rich occurrences of wild orchids between May and July. Snåsa has chosen the “lady’s slipper” orchid as its municipal flower and it also features on the municipal coat of arms. 17 different types of orchids have been registered in the municipality.
