Overview

The royal birch by Glomstua in Molde is a national symbol and memorial to the German occupation of Norway.

The place where King Haakon and Crown Prince Olav sought shelter from German bombers in April 1940 when they were being hunted by the German occupying forces. The Peace Grove next to the Royal Birch symbolizes the continuing struggle for freedom, peace and human dignity both today and in the future.
