Hamar is a bustling city on the eastern shores of Mjøsa, Norway’s largest lake. Most of the lake’s shores are occupied by rolling agricultural lands, including some of Norway’s most fertile land.

The ruins of the 950-year-old Hamar Cathedral can be found on the headland Domkirkeodden. In 1998, an impressive steel and glass cover was erected to protect the cathedral’s ruins.
