Preapering for sightseeing

To day we are sightseeing at Røros.  We chose to walk through Røros with a guide telling us about Røros and Røros sights.  We also wanted to visit The Church of Røros and the churchyard because our garndmothers mother has her tomb here.

Røros is a unique mining town built exclusively of wood. The town has for 333 years been a melting pot of cultures and influences from Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Trondheim and the surrounding district. This has resulted in a wooden house environment, which represents much of Norway?s finest traditions, and is unique in our country?s industrial, social, cultural and architectural areas. The mining town of Røros and its surroundings is a characteristic example of a special traditional style of wood architecture creating a unique town 600 metres above sea level.

The wooden houses and the centre of the town are included on the list. The mining town has retained much of its original structure in the layout of the streets from the 1600s, and the wooden houses built in the1700 and 1800s.

Good weather made the sightseeing  nice.  To night we are gathering at Bergstaden Hotel to have a nice meal.
