10 am "In the footsteps of heavy water saboteurs"
Together with guides from Telemark Opplevelser you walk the charm of the Sabotørstien, which is the way the world famous Norwegian resistance people used during World War II when they were to blow up the heavy water factory at Vemork. On the tour you will hear the story of one of the most knowned and famous actions. A guided walk down and up the canyon is an experience you will never forget.
11.30 am Heavy Water Cellar
The Vemork power station was completed in 1911, and was then the world's largest power plant. The hydrogen plant, also known as the "Hydrogen", was built in 1928. Hydrogen production was based on the use of direct current, therefore the building stood only 9 meters from the power plant.
In 1972, hydrogen production was discontinued at Vemork, and in 1977 the plant was blown up and leveled with the soil. We thought!
In autumn 2017, Norway's first and Europe's largest industrial archaeological excavation started. The hope was to find the basement floor without major damage. After a few intense weeks, the Norwegian Industrial Workers Museum was able to confirm that the basement was found to be almost intact.
Join us right into Norway's history, with an exclusive tour of the heavy water cellar, where one of the most famous actions of war history took place in February 1943. You will have the opportunity to see, among other things, the cabling where Rønneberg and Kayser crawled in, and not least the high concentration room where the sabotage action itself took place.
12.30 pm Final lunch in the machine room at Vemork
In the very hall of Vemork, "Rallar - soup" is served as a final lunch before returning home.
