100 years with Sigrid Undset

 In 2019, we celebrate Sigrid Undset’s arrival to both Lillehammer and Bjerkebæk.

A variety of events  will be held throughout the year.


The novels describing the lives of Kristin Lavransdatter (1920-1922) and Olav Audunssøn (1925-1927) in Medieval Norway were both written at Bjerkebæk.

Sigrid Undset was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in November 1928, in part for her powerful description of Nordic life in the middle ages.
