Nidaros Pilegrimsgård is a meeting and reception place for all users of the Pilgrim paths. With us you will find the official pilgrim reception in Nidaros, where all pilgrims are registered and official reception statistics are kept. Here pilgrims get their last stamps in the pilgrim's pass and the Olav letter is issued. Nidaros Pilegrimsgård is organized as a foundation and will serve as a resource and competence center. We arrange walks, conferences, workshops, seminars and meetings with themes related to pilgrimage and Olav's heritage.
The founders behind the Nidaros Pilegrimsgård are Trondheim municipality, Trøndelag County Council, Nidaros Diocesan Council, Nidaros Cathedral Restoration Workers, Nidaros Cathedral and Vår Frues Kirke "Church" Council, Olavsfestdagene, Trondheim Ecclesiastical Council and the Foundation Areopagos. The Chairman of the Board is Lars Tvete. Nidaros Pilegrimsgård also houses a regional pilgrim center for the region around Trondheim. It is an information office that can provide tips and advice on hiking on the Pilgrim trails in Norway, and that we are building networks and advising other players working on the Pilgrim Trail in our region.
We offer accommodation with breakfast all year round, to both pilgrims and other guests. We rent out meeting rooms for up to 8, and events for up to 30 guests.
Nidaro's Pilgrimage Farm has its own library of pilgrimage-relevant literature. The library holds about 1,000 Norwegian and international titles. Over the years, there has been a growing body of literature and reports that touch upon the pilgrimage theme, which deals with both past and present.
Nidaros Pilegrimsgård has taken the initiative to collect recent and older literature, master's theses and reports on the pilgrimage theme and the Olavs heritage. In addition, a pilgrimage archive has been established which includes a good coverage of the pilgrim's history in Norway for the last 25 years.
Both the material in the archive and the literature in the library have a particular focus on Nidaros as a pilgrimage goal. The archive and library are continuously renewed.
