All-year open-air museum

This old stave church was originally built in Garmo in the municipality of Lom, but it was removed and built again in Lillehammer.

Now the Garmo Stave Church, which dates back to the 12th century, stands in the Maihaugen open-air museum, which is open for visits.

Ski Jumping Arena

The Lysgårdsbakkene Ski Jumping Arena is one of the main highlights of the city. It has two ski jumping hills, which are covered with a plastic coating and are busy all year round. During the summer, you can hop on a chairlift at the base of the hill and ride up to the peak for a fantastic view. Inside the arena, there’s a souvenir shop where you can find various gifts, including special Olympic Park souvenirs.
