Finnesloftet – a medieval hall from 1295

Finnesloftet is a wooden building that dates from the same time period as the Stave churches. They also share many construction and design elements, however Finnesloftet served a very different purpose. The building is a medieval hall – the only one of its kind that is still standing. The «Hall» as a concept dates back to the Viking Age and is mentioned in the Sagas. In medieval times the Hall would be one of several buildings on the farm of a wealthy landowner. It was considered a suitable place to receive and honour guests with food, beer and good company.

From July 3rd there are guided tours of the loft at 6pm and 8pm. There will also be concerts during the summer! To be announced.
