The Austrått Manor is one of Norway’s oldest manors, and one of the country’s most formidable cultural sites from medieval times. Ingerd Ottesdatter was one of the manor’s most significant and colourful owners. She played an important part in Norwegian history, notably in the implementation of the Reformation. It was during her time at Austrått in the 16th century that the main building was raised.
Located in Ørland, Trøndelag, the castle is open to the public in the summer, where Ingerd’s story is told and the details are brought to life by the skilled guides. The manor is open to the public 11 am – 4 pm, during the summer season. The café Borgstua is open every day during the season 11 am – 3:45 pm. Free entry.
