Description

Eidsvollbygningen – the birthplace of the Norwegian Constitution

Eidsvollbygningen is a house full of exciting history. For Norwegians it is one of the most important national symbols, inextricably tied to the constitution, independence and the dramatic events of 1814.

In April 1814, against the backdrop of the Napoleonic wars in Europe, 112 representatives met at Eidsvoll with a formidable task: to decide the nation’s future. Six weeks later they signed the Constitution and elected a king for the new independent state of Norway; a crucial event remembered ever after in our 17th of May celebrations.

Eidsvollsbygningen is now closed because of on-going restoration works and will reopen in 2014 as a part of the bicentenary celebrations of the Norwegian Constitution.

Wergelands Hus - Our visitors centre contains the exhibit “Citizens in a Living democracy”, emphasizing past and present stories of people committed to a cause, as well as other smaller changing exhibits inside and outside the house.  The centre is located only 50 m from the main building with nice outdoor surroundings.

Kafé Standpunkt  - is a modern coffeehouse inspired by the coffeehouse traditions that were established in Europe during the 17thcentury. In Madame Juels coffeehouse in Copenhagen the early thoughts of Norwegian independence were born, leading on to the events in 1814. Our coffeehouse offers tasty pastries, lunch and coffee in a modern interior which includes a small bookshop.

The coffeehouse is located in our visitors centre with a nice view to Eidsvollsbygningen as well as the river Andelva. Seats app 60 pax in side and 25 pax outside. 

Museums shop- Roomers say it’s one of the most pretty museum shops in Norway, with a charming athmosphere and helpful staff.  Planning the shop we wanted to bring the experience from the main building into the shop and its interiors as well as range of products.  No trolls here..
