Ingerd Ottesdatter was one of the manor’s most significant and colourful owners. She played an important part in Norwegian history, notably in the implementation of the Reformation. It was during her time at Austrått in the 16th century that the main building was raised.
The manor is open to the public every day during the summer season with free entry to the courtyard, café and shop, and guided tours (usually in norwegian) inside the halls and chapel.
Summer season 2022 is now over, contact us for other visits.
Austråttborgen's adress is Borgveien 6, 7140 Opphaug. There is a parking space right next to the manor.
