Introducing Hamar

For a town that would never win a beauty contest, Hamar has a surprising number of attractions. Most date from the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer when Hamar hosted a number of events, but there are also some good museums.

The Hamar Regional Tourist Office (62 51 75 03; www.hamarregionen.no in Norwegian; 8am-6pm Mon-Fri, 10am-6pm Sat & Sun mid-Jun–mid-Aug, 8am-4pm Mon-Fri rest-of-year) is at the Viking Ship Sports Arena.
