About

Long-church from the Middle Ages

Løten Church dates back to the 1200s, and the original stone building was made up of what is currently the eastern part of the nave and the choir. Its nave was extended to double the size in the 1800s, and the western tower and the current porch also date back to this period. The church has a 400-people capacity.

It has a single nave with flat ceiling, and an organ gallery to the west. Its altar is from the Middle Ages, whereas the baptismal font in soapstone dates back to 1815. The pulpit is from 1873. In 1928, architect Carl Berner provided a new design for the nave, and the cloud motifs on the ceiling was painted by Domenico Erdmann. The church was restored externally in 1989-1990, and underwent internal refurbishment in 1995.

To the east of the church is a chapel that was consecrated on 1 January 1916. This building is likely to have been designed by Henry Bucher.

Imagine, this is where Edvard Munch was christened

Edvard Munch was born at Ådalsbruk in Løten, and was actually christened twice. Because he was a sickly child, an emergency christening was held at home at Engelaug. This was followed by a christening ceremony held in Løten Church on 15 April 1864.
