Hadeland Glassverk - The fascinating world of glass

Hadeland Glassverk is home to the captivating traditional craft of glass making, formed over centuries of history, art and culture. Hadeland Glassverk is one of Norway’s biggest tourist attractions.

For 240 years, glass craftsmen and designers have processed and developed something quite unique in Norwegian cultural history. Today, about 400 000 items are dispatched through the gates of Hadeland Glassverk every year.

At Hadeland Glassverk, you will find a fascinating range of cultural experiences. Watch the glassblowers at work, carrying out their craft just as it was 240 years ago. The traditions, innovation and attractions here are enhanced by the beautiful surroundings, where there are many activities on offer for all. In addition to a trip to the glassmakers, there is a glass museum, one of Norway's most exciting art galleries, two restaurants and seven shops.

Hadeland Glassverk has special expertise in creating art to enhance interiors and spaces – everything from specially commissioned works of art such as sculptures to functional products such as lighting. Glass is also a fascinating material in terms of illumination and optical effects in architectural contexts through the use of glass blocks, glass tiling and more besides.
