History of Domkirkeodden in Hamar
Domkirkeodden – ”Cathedral Point” in English – is a fantastic museum of medieval culture and history. It lies in a beautiful location of the shore of Lake Mjøsa, dominated by the ruins of the medieval Hamar Catherdral, now preserved under the the glass enclosure, “Hamardomen.”

Hamarkaupangen on the cathedral promontory was a medieval town and an ecclesiastical centre. It was the site of Hamar Cathedral, the Bishop's castle, Saint Olav's monastery, a herb garden, hospital and school. In the 16th century, the town was abandoned and large parts of the castle and the cathedral were destroyed.

Domkirkeodden and the Bishop of Hamar were very powerful, forming a centre of power between Oslo and Nidaros. After Saint Olav's death at the Battle of Stiklestad in AD 1030, pilgrims began making the pilgrimage to his grave in Nidaros. It was natural for many people, both pilgrims and other travellers, to break their journey and stay overnight at St Olav's monastery on the promontory. The cathedral promontory is still a natural hub for walks.
