Visit the birthplace of an independent nation
Eidsvoll Verk is a charming little village and the site of the former Eidsvoll Iron Works, which was in operation between 1624 and 1822. Today, the iron works can be found within the Eidsvoll Museum, an open-air exhibit comprising 26 buildings, and is home to many artefacts and archive photographs.
When visiting Eidsvoll, you are stepping into a region of Norway steeped in history. In 1814 farmers, businessmen and politicians, came together in Eidsvoll Verk village to draft a new constitution and elect a new king. This was done to put an end to foreign rule and is widely celebrated on the 17th
of May each year. In the village you can visit Eidsvoll Manor
, the historic site of the assembly that changed Norway forever. Inside this stately manor you’ll find the Norwegian Constitutional Museum and you can join a guided tour of the famous building. The manor became Norway’s first national monument in 1837. Today, it is one of the most important national symbols in the nation.
