Welcome to the home of one of Norway’s great female writers.

Nobel laureate Sigrid Undset (1882–1949) lived at Bjerkebæk with her three children.
Here she wrote the novels for which she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1928.

The famous author’s home is located just a short walk from Lillehammer city center. Due to the Covid-19 situation the home has limited access, but visitors can look into some of the rooms. Our knowledgeable hosts will tell stories about Sigrid Undset and her life at Bjerkebæk.

The beautiful garden surrounds the old notched log buildings. This is a typical garden for its time, around the 1920s, planned and shaped by Sigrid Undset herself. It is an experience walking around the paths in this lush and well kept garden.

In the guset house you can visit the exhibition «Sigrid Undset’s travels»
