However, we can recommend many beautiful hiking trails and nature experiences at Ekne, suited for both two-legged and four-legged visitors. Check out the section Nature-based experiences for inspiration!
Is the center suitable for younger children?
Although Falstad’s history has some dark sides to it, our premises are bright and inviting. We offer a few activities for children. Close to the reception there is an area with drawing materials and pearls, and our library also contains some childrens’ books. Our digital reconstruction of the SS camp provides many great experiences across generations. We have learned that children’s curiosity and wonder is triggered by the exhibits, the site and the traces of the past, as long as the story is communicated according to their age. We can offer customized educational programs for primary schools. You are welcome to Rooms & food.
Is the place haunted by ghosts?
We are often asked if the former prison camp is haunted. Considering the history of the place, this concern is not surprising. We can only testify that Falstad today is a peaceful place loaden with positive energy. Daily, we experience good conversations, creativity and enthusiasm together with our guests, partners and school students who visit us to study history and topics related to human rights and democracy.
