Overview

Visit «Tovsteinsringen» (The twelve-stone ring) by Moelv
The twelve-stone ring by Moelv has been given some much deserved care and is worth dropping by. Sometimes this large stone circle located right by the roadside North of Moelv is compared to the world-famous Stonehenge. Of course, Stonehenge is an attraction of a different scale, but Ringsaker’s twelve-stone circle does have rock solid cultural roots.

Rituals and funerals dating back 2500 years
Tens of tons divided amongst the twelve rocks raises into the landscape. It’s easy to comprehend that this exact spot carried significant meaning to those living by Lake Mjøsa 2500 years ago.

Similar circles discovered around Norway was traditionally utilized as arenas for rituals and funerals. Discoveries of burnt bones and coal points to the twelve-stone circle by Moelv as a funeral site, which along with three other circles in the area made up a common final resting place.

Where is the twelve-stone ring?
You will find the ring right west of road 213 between Moelv and Brøttum, within walking distance from Moelv city centre. It’s possible to park by the memorial for those who fell in the skirmishes of the 2nd world war, which is about 200 meters north of the twelve-stone ring.
