Attraction details
Owner description: The Knut Hamsun Centre is located by the vicarage ruins on the banks of the Glimma River in Presteid in Hamarøy Municipality in Northern Norway. The centre is situated in a beautiful cultural landscape surrounded by nature that remains virtually as untouched as it was in Hamsun’s time. The centre’s tower offers an impressive view over the realm of Hamsun, the area that inspired the author to write world renowned books like Pan, Growth of the Soil and Wayfarers.

“Interesting arcitecture, lots to learn”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2012

The building is interesting by itself, and it is lots to learn about one of Norway's greatest writers,

The centre has a small bookshop and a quite nice café.
