The Austrått Manor is one of Norway’s oldest manors, and one of the country’s most formidable cultural sites from medieval times. The courtyard, café and museumshop are open every day during summer season. We offer guided tours inside the halls and chapel.

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.


Austråttborgen's adress is Borgveien 6, 7140 Opphaug. There is a parking space right next to the manor.

Going from Trondheim? Take the ferry (number 800 / 805) from Trondheim Hurtigbåtterminal to Brekstad (about 60 minutes). Taxis are waiting by the arrival, and will transport you to Austrått. Preorder at (+47) 72524810. 

If you prefer to go by bicycle from Brekstad to Austrått, it will take about 30 minutes. You can bring your bicycle free of charge on the ferry, but please note that bicycles and the like can not be prioritized if the ferry is full.
