Røros was once an important center for copper mining and the industry has left a significant mark on the area. Today, the town and parts of the surrounding landscape are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The volume of authentic wooden buildings from lining the streets is rare in Norway and wandering between them feels like taking a step back in time. The buildings, along with the preserved history of the copper works and the unique culture that developed in the harsh conditions, contribute to its listed status.
The museum at the site of the former smelter, “Smelthytta”, provides a concise and fascinating insight into how mining methods developed over the centuries. A perfect complement to the museum is a tour through the disused Olavsgruva mine, 13 kilometers away.
Kafestuggu is Røros’ oldest café and once again, local products like reindeer punctuate the menu. For a tasty souvenir, the supermarkets stock many regional specialties including flatbread, dairy products, and sausages.
