STIKLESTAD NATIONAL CULTURAL CENTRE
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 interesting museums. THE CRADLE OF NORWAY The nations 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 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. 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 and accommodation is located in between the two monasteries. www.en.visitinnherred.com/historic-innherred
THE HISTORICAL SLOOP JEKTA PAULINE
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 centres. 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 worlds 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 RECONSTUCTED TOWN OF STEINKJER Steinkjer was bombed during WWII and alsmost 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 today 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.

REINDEER AT BRANNHEIMKLUMPEN MOUNTAIN
Innherred is in the middle of the main area where the South Sami today engage in traditional Sami reindeer husbandry. Snåsa/Snåase is a bilingual municipality and is central to the care of the South Sámi culture and language. At Saemien Sijte – South Sami museum and cultural centre in Snåsa you can become better aquainted with the South Sami culture, the language, the people and see interesting exhibitions. In Verdal, the traces of Sami activity are many. If you follow the cultural trail from Sul and up to Brenntjønna, along the DNT path to Meråker, you are walking in a Sami landscape and an important settlement area for the Samis until 1976. In Levanger, Helmesmyra at Lake Tomtvatnet was a permanent Sami winter settlement until the 1960s, and not far from there at Spjelmyra, there was a reindeer slaughter place. The Sami sold reindeer meat and other goods to the village people, and they were always in place at both the Christmas market and the Marsimartnan market fair in Levanger. The modern Marsimartnan always include elements with Sami touches. Blåfjella – Skjækerfjella/Låarte-Skæhkere National Park is and has been a central south Sami area. The Samis have used the area for hundreds of years and those who knows what to look for, can still see remains of ancient settlements, gathering sites, burial grounds and sacred sites. Within the national park there are two reindeer grazing districts: Skjækerfjella reindeer pasturing district and Luru reindeer pasturing district.

THE VIEW FROM ROEL
Inderøy stretches from the E6 motorway over the fertile peninsula in the Trondheimsfjord via the strait of Skarnsundet to Mosvik on the Fosen Peninsula. Mosvik became part of Inderøy in 2012. The agriculture, forestry and cultural traditions are strong here.
areas and is rich in history. The E6 motorway passes through the municipality and 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. 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. Facilities in the village of Mosvik
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 is centrally located, just 1,5 hrs drive from both Trondheim and Namdalen. The lush peninsula also has a long shore line, great outdoor recreational
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 / 16 THE GOLDEN ROAD The stretch of road known as The Golden Road takes you through beautiful cultural landscape along county road Fv761/FV755 (with detours) 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
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 Skarnsundet strait connecs the two fjords Trondheimsfjorden and Beitstadfjorden. The bridge was listed for protection in 2008 by the National Antiquarian. Close to the bridge is Skarnsundet Fjord Centre, of interest for fishing enthuiasts. THE MUUSTRØ PARK 4 The Muustrø Park is an idyllic place in the municipal centre of Straumen.

include Mosvik Brygge restaurant, hair dresser and a grocery store.
THE SKARNSUNDET BRIDGE 3 The Skarnsund 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,
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. NAATIONAL BIKE ROUTE 1 The national bike route “the coastal route” follows the coast from Svinesund to Kirkenes and at Innherred the route passes through Meltingen and Inderøy to Steinkjer. THE WORLDS OLDEST STEAM SHIP SDS Hansteen sets out on its journey on the Trondheimfjord the weekend of 31. July and on 1. Aug., Hansteen arrives in Inderøy. Come and welcome Hansteen when it docks, or join for one day or two or the whole voyage. See. p. 95 for more information.
