Guidet city walk in Steinkjer
Steinkjer municipality has an exciting history; parts of the city burned down in the city fire of 1900 and it was re-built in the Art-Noveau style. During WWII Steinkjer city was carpet-bombed and virtually all of the city centre was laid in ruines. The city was rebuilt during and after the war. Today, the city is characterised by four districts, divided by the river and the railway.
We start the guided walk at the City Hall and end at Steinkjer church. During the walk, we see that Steinkjer is a distinctive reconstructed city of recovery, while several street names in the city reflect prehistoric heyday and important historical milestones.
