Eastern Norway Viken LILLESTRØM

The Pilgrim’s Route 8 Risebru - Eidsvoll

  •  /  km From You
Overview

Risebru- Eidsvoll church about 16 km

From Risebru, the road goes through the village Råholt, here it is possible to stock up. Furthermore, the trail enters Carsten Ankers veg, down to the Eidsvolls building where Norway's constitution was written.

At the Cafe standpoint, pilgrims with pilgrim passes receive free coffee.

Then we follow Andelva, pass Seilet Scene and Seterberget and cross over towards Venja. Here the trail runs across the cornfield with high skies. You then cross one of the many ravines that the Roman Empire landscape is known for and take the road further in the direction of Eidsvoll church. The first church on the site, probably a so-called post church, was built by Olav 2. Haraldsson (St Olav) in 1017.

He founded Eidsivatinget here June 17, 1022 - It was a regional council for the entire inner East Norway area until about 1620.

Accommodation is found in the old rectory and is run on a voluntary basis by the congregation. The Wergeland family lived on the farm from 1817 to 1848 and Eilert Sundt from 1869 to 1875. For those who want to go further, you can continue to Haug pilgrimage and hostel. Here you can spend the night with the starry sky as a roof, in a double bed in the greenhouse.
