Geirangerfjord

The unique road construction in Ørjasæter known as the Knot (Knuten) remains as it was when it was opened 1882. It was built in conjunction with the Geirangervegen road in order to gain height and to conquer difficult terrain. The stone construction displays outstanding engineering work and is an important reminder of the pioneers who built Geirangervegen from 1881 until it was opened in 1889. It is part of the old road from Geiranger, and today is still driveable. At the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900 engineers received the gold medal for the design, with the words: "Thou giver a good picture of the magnificent Norwegian Mountain scenery."
