Here are some excerpts from feedback on from guests who have stayed at the Falstad Center:

"A powerful experience to spend the night in a historically significant place. Spacious rooms. Comfortable accommodation. Meals at your convenience."

"This was more than just accommodation; it was also a museum steeped in important Norwegian history. Very friendly staff, spacious and comfortable rooms. A great breakfast and pleasant premises. The on-site exhibition provided interesting insights into World War II history."

"This overnight stay came with added value. As an overnight guest, you have access to the museum, a modern and fascinating museum that enhanced our understanding of the war. A visit to Falstadskogen, where around 200 prisoners of war were executed, is also highly recommended. You can reach it by walking parts of the pilgrimage route."

"A night in a former prison. Pleasant and clean. As overnight guests, we had the flexibility to explore the exhibition at our own pace. The area is peaceful. It's a unique opportunity to learn about history combined with an overnight stay."

We ensure that each visit provides you with a historical and memorable experience. Welcome!
