Hamar is a pretty town in Norway's Hedmark County, on the shores of Lake Mjǿsa. A must-see attraction for visitors to this fascinating city is the cathedral and folk museum of Domkirkeodden, which has its own café and offers scenic walks by the lake. A festival is held here each June. You can also visit the Railway Museum and get a glimpse of the local birdlife at Åkersvika nature reserve. There are a few good hotels in Hamar.
Contemporary Dance Festival: held in Oslo at the end of September, the Contemporary Dance Festival offers visitors the chance to indulge their love of the modern dance genre with performances by professional dancers from across the country and abroad also. Expect everything from traditional contemporary dance performances to slightly more avant-garde ones.
