Edvard Munch's birthplace - photo point


Near Klevfos is the Engelaug Østre Farm, where Edvard Munch was born on 12 December 1863. The farm is privately owned and is not open to the public, but can be experienced from a vantage point by the Ådalsbrukvegen road. This is a place approachable by bus/car/bicycle or by foot. There is an information board, which forms part of an Edvard Munch trail. The trail, which starts at Klevfos and the Munch centre in Løten, consists of five information boards located in key places in the life of the Munch family. There is a map on the boards.
