Gjøvik Glassverk (glassworks)

These glassworks were founded by Caspar Kauffeldt in 1807, and the local communities that have grown up around the works became the basis for Gjøvik as a town. In the glass-blowers' hut, you can watch true craftspeople at work.

Lekeland1 (indoor playground)

And afterwards you can visit the region's most exciting souvenir shop and relax at the café.
