Håkons Hall

Håkons Hall in Lillehammer is a flexible multi-purpose venue of world-class. The hall’s floor space, capacity and layout provide excellent conditions for both large and small events. Håkons Hall is able to serve up to 2,000 delegates for dinner simultaneously. With special lighting, table decorations and settings, the hall can be transformed into a charming and cosy event arena.

Used as a congress hall, the stands and parquet flooring can be assembled in a wide variety of ways, depending on the number of attendees and the theme. Other areas and rooms in the hall may also be used as needed. By dividing it in half, you can have a conference on one side and a banquet on the other.

As an arena for trade fairs, Håkons Hall has a capacity of 3,500 square metres on one single floor, with other available facilities such as the entry hall, the cafeteria and the VIP room that can be used as needed.

Banquet capacity: 2,000 delegates.

Ranking as the largest open-air museum in Europe, Maihaguen houses approximately 200 buildings and more than 40,000 objects. Maihaugen tells the story of people in the Gudbrandsdalen Valley over the last 300 years, of life between the wars in the inland town of Lillehammer and of homes and domestic environments in the 20th century. The calm and spacious landscape at Maihaugen provides time for reflection.
