Aulestad is beautifully located on the sunny side of Gausdal, about 20 kilometres from Lillehammer. Experience the farm as it was when Karoline and Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson lived there, and get a look into their lives during an important time in Norwegian history. Aulestad is open to the public in the summertime.

The famous couple created a European city home in the country side. This is more than one hundred years ago, but Bjørnsons commitment is as modern as ever.

Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson wrote stories, novels, historical plays and contemporary drama and nearly 400 poems that have inspired many musicians.  He wrote thousands of letters, speeches and articles. He was a founder of a nation and a Nobel Peace Prize laureate.
