Eastern Norway Innlandet VÅGÅ

MUNCH WALK in Vågå

  • Edvard Storms veg 2, Vågå
  • +47 61293600
  •  /  km From You
Overview

Edvard Munch is Norway's best-known artist and a world-class painter. He was both recognised and controversial in his lifetime, and many people viewed him as shy, selfish and focused on himself and his own art.

While walking in Munch's footsteps in Vågå, you will discover that he had other sides too. Edvard Munch was interested in how the genes we inherit shape us. Munch's father's family was from Vågå, and as a young man Munch travelled here to seek out his roots. He maintained a close relationship to Vågå throughout his life, visiting several times and thinking of Vågå often.

The Munch walk starts just outside of Lie-hjørna. It then turns towards Vågå church, across the cemetery and to Ullinsvin, ending at Jutulheimen. The total distance is 1.32 km, with an elevation of 97 metres. The walk is well marked and you can find your way by following these signs.

At each of the three stops along the Munch walk, you can listen to an episode of the new audio play «Great-grandmother’s portrait», in which you get to know Edvard Munch while he wanders around in Vågå. Stand under the sound shower, press the button and get to know Edvard Munch. The lyrics is only in Norwegian, but enjoy the atmosphere and the music.
