Lillehammer Tourist Traps: 1 reviews and 0 photos
Ever since Lillehammer came into existence due to its position at the nothern end of Lake Mjosa and end station of the lake shipping and eventually also the railway, catering for visitors and travellers has been one of the mainstays of the local economy.
Many painters have tried to copy the winter light here (see the local galleries, the main painting exhibition, and the walls at the Breiseth Hotel), and many lung patients came for recuperation and recovery for tub and other ailments at the local sanatoria (still, there is one). Skiing took off when leisure time became more pronounced in the mid-war period. In the 50'ies Lillehammer had a direct winter air link with Copenhagen by DC3s, using the ice-covered lake as runway. The Olympics in 1994 was another tourism enhancement trick that served the town well in that respect.
So, I am just admitting it, this is a genuine tourist trap!
Unique Suggestions: Make use of the tourist office.
Get into the town surroundings when the town centre activities die down in the afternoon.
Do some totally genuine tourist trap things: try the bobsleigh run, the Hunderfossen Troll team park, sledging in the Olympic Park.
Fun Alternatives: See what there is to see in your collective opinion, and push on to greener pastures and wilder scenery.
