Medieval sagas speak of Steinkjer as a major trading centre. Little remains of such a significant past, although it does serve as a crossroads of the two major routes to the north. Even so, you may not even realise you've passed through town, not least because there's little here to hold your attention, aside from the town's Egge Museum, an open-air farm complex 2.5km north of town. On the same hilltop site are several Viking burial mounds and stone circles.
