Banken Cultural House

This magnificent building was renovated in connection with the 1994 Olympic Winter Games. The interiors are richly decorated with contemporary art and art from the turn-of-the-century and are very well suited for concerts, theater performances, receptions, conferences, etc. Lillehammer's strong traditions in art, music and literature, along with its exhibitions, have acted as a premise for municipal planning.

Built in 1895, Kulturhuset Banken was first a bank, briefly served as a courthouse after WWII, and is now a cultural hub of the community, hosting all types of cultural events and private gatherings. The building features a concert hall (used as a television studio during the 1994 Winter Games) and several smaller halls, as well a restaurant/venue, the aforementioned Café Stift, on the building’s ground floor.
