Very nice town with all shops you need....
The cafe's / cafeterias are very traditional and cheap after Norwegian standards
Here you can get traditional Norwegian dinners. Stange is off any touristtrack, so here the locals eat. Try either "Tingvoll" cafe or "Sentrumsgaarden"
Try the traditional: Meatcakes with mashed peas/ gravy/ potatoes, Fish, steak and gravy with sourkraut..... Prices at around €8
You also find a OK Pizzarestaurant and fast food restaurant
The soil around Stange is very fertile. There are many old farms with a long history. Some dates back all the way to the viking ages. Imagine over 1000 years ago viking ships sailed the Lake Mjøsa. The viking kings were buried in huge grave-hills with some of their belongings (to bring into the afterlife)
There are several graves in Stange. You find one just outside the centre of Stange, (Lahlum)
Just as you pass downtowntown Stange, on the edge of town you get an amazing view over the fields, the Lake Mjøsa (biggest lake in Norway) The church is worth a visit.
