The White Swan of Mjøsa

The world’s eldest wheel steamer is named DS Skibladner and resides in Norway’s largest lake, Mjøsa. It was built in 1856 and you can enjoy a nice meal under the sun while on board this national historical treasure.

Hamar olympiahall, kjent for mange som Vikingskipet, ligger med Åkersvika og er en av verdens største skøytehaller og en av Norges største konsert- og idrettsareanaer.
