We stayed at the Hotel Elvester and it's a very interesting place. The owners have saved this column when no one else wanted it. It's a good thing. Impressive. The hotel is loaded with art work worth a walk around.

This is in the outer area of the hotel grounds, but there isn't much information about it at the site. It was made by a Nazi sympathizer and as such was stored away in a warehouse in Oslo for years. The father of the present...More

On our trip from Lom to R55 Sognefjellet we made a short stop here. Impressive column with intriguing artwork. However we saw no information panel that gave us a hint on what it means and why or when it was erected here.

The monolith was saved from oblivion by the owner of the Elveseter hotel where it has been raised. The artist who created the work was stamped as a Nazi sympathizer around WWII and the work was never put together to stand as originally planned. Instead...More

The column is next to the Elveseter hotel parking lot. It is worth a quick look while your are visiting.

The column is beautiful. Strangely I hadn't heard of it when I planned the trip. Its worth the stop. If you have time try to get a close look when you're there, I could not find images online showing the entire story.

This is a neat piece of art it's literally in the middle of nowhere! Easy parking to get out and enjoy plus walk around the hotel where it is at.

This Column was started in the mid18th century - but not finished until after WWII. more than 1000 years of Norwegian history can be seen on the 33 meter high column. Why it is placed by a local (beautiful) farm in the middle of Norway,...More

You can't believe this sculpture is in the middle of nowhere. I can't imagine how much the family spent to erect this tall monument. See photos for interesting history.
