What: The former Jomfru Guldbrandsen's Hotel and plaque

Where: Harald Fjeldals kolonial, Standgata 16, 4790 Lillesand, Norway

Here it is: From the E18 drive through Lillesand on the Rv. 402, Jernbanegata. At the harbour turn left into the Strandgata.

Today a grocery occupies the building, but Hamsun's room and in particular his balcony is visibly from below, from the Tollbod-brygga. The plaque commemorates Hamsun's stays here in 1890 and is placed outside on the house wall.
