Follow the eastern way out of Oslo along the Oldtid's road over Gjelleråsen, past Raknehaugen and the Stange forests to the seat of the bishop of Hamar at Domkirkeodden
From the Old Town over Gjelleråsen
Starting at the ruins of St. Mary's Church at the Old Town in Oslo you may chose to follow the pilgrim's road either westward or eastward.
Should you choose to go eastward out of town you follow the Romerik route along the streets up the Grorud valley in surroundings that are totally transformed since the Middle Ages. An alternative to this is the Oldtid's road ('old time's road') over Gjelleråsen where hardly any disturbances offer a picture closer to the original medieval roads.
Through Romerike and the Stange forests to Hamar
Through the rolling landscape of Romerike the road goes past Skedsmo church where St Olav christianised the Raums. Onwards the road goes along the old track Farseggen and towards Scandinavia's biggest burial ground, Raknehaugen in Ullensaker. In Eidsvoll you can experience the Eidsvoll of 1814, where Norway's constitution was written, or go aboard the pilgrim boat Skibladner.
Onwards north the road goes through the Stange forests to the seat of the bishop of Hamar at Domkirkeodden. Here the Romerik route unites with the Gudbrand valley route, which continues on the east side of the river Mjøsa towards Lillehammer and the Gudbrand valley.
The route from Oslo over Hadeland via Kapp⁄Gjøvik and Hamar to Nidaros is now called Gudbrandsdalsleden ('the Gudbrandsdal valley route')
