Welcome to the Hamsun region

There are numerous traces of Knut Hamsun’s life in Grimstad. Not surprisingly though - the town was his home for 34 years. A museum is being planned, but in the meantime we are making use of other arenas to communicate our Hamsun heritage.

In beautiful autumn weather we recommend a walk along Hamsun's footpaths in the hills surrounding the town. Final stop is Hamsun's own postbox in Storgata.
