The largest private property in Norway is up for sale. The sale of Meraker Brug in Trøndelag will secure works of art and ensure the safe operation of the Astrup Fearnley Museum in Oslo.

The Hans Rasmus Astrup Foundation is putting a massive property up for sale, the newspaper Dagens Næringsliv (DN) writes.

“We are considering selling Meraker Brug. The sole purpose is to build up a capital base to support the operation of the museum, buy new art continuously, and secure the museum forever,” the foundation’s chairman Richard Arnesen told the newspaper.

The property of 1.2 million acres is located in the municipalities of Meråker, Stjørdal, Malvik, and Steinkjer and extends all the way to the Swedish border. The Stjørdal river, which contains some of Norway’s best hunting and fishing areas, flows through the property.

Among other things, the property has large forest areas, hydropower plants, ski resorts, and cabin rentals in the various hunting areas.

According to DN, the market value of the property is over NOK 1.5 billion. Several Norwegian financiers, hunting and fishing enthusiasts, institutions, and potential buyers abroad have already expressed interest in the property.
