Cultural experiences with a Twist - Day-trip to Hadeland
Join us on an eventful day trip to the Hadeland region! We visit the Kistefos museum and Hadeland Glassverk, 2 inspirational attractions at a short distance from each other.
• Hadeland Glassverk (varighet ca 2,5 timer – kr /person)
Hadeland Glassverk, located by Randsfjorden, was established in 1762 and thus celebrates its 260-year anniversary. This is marked with an Anniversary Exhibition in Galleri 1. Stretching over three floors, this is the most comprehensive display of the glasswork’s history ever made. The Anniversary Exhibition visit is followed by a guided tour of Glasshytta. There is enough time to explore the area on your own. Hadeland Glassverk is home to some 25 glassblowers as well as 11 shops, 5 restaurants, exhibition, and art gallery.
• Thorbjørnrud Hotell, Jevnaker
Thorbjørnrud Hotel offers a delicious lunch buffet in stunning surroundings by Randsfjorden. There are beautiful grounds to explore, and the hotel uses vegetables from own kitchen garden. A guided tour of the director’s residence can be booked as part of the visit to the glassworks.
• Kistefos (varighet ca 2 timer - kr 150 /person + kr 2000 for guidet tour)
This industrial museum, which is the former A/S Kistefos Træsliberi, is the only one of Norway’s 100 old wood pulp mills where both buildings and production facilities remain almost completely intact. It also features a spectacular sculpture park with 49 works by notable contemporary artists. The Twist is a gallery, a bridge, and a sculpture in its own right, and creates the illusion of floating over the Randselva river.
After an introductory guided tour, you are free to explore the park and industrial museum on your own.
