English: Birth home and memorial plaques on site. On this house you find memorial plaques for the Norwegian Nobel Prize winner Sigrid Undset, who was born in this house in Kalundborg. Sigrid Undset received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1928.

Sigrid Undset wrote novels, short stories, and essays. At first she wrote about strong, contemporary women struggling for emancipation. Inspired by her father, a prominent archeologist, she later turned to writing about the Middle Ages. Her best known work is Kristin Lavransdatter, which deals with themes of honor, religious faith, and the common life shared by women and men in 15th-century Norway. With solid historical knowledge, deep psychological insight, a vivid imagination, and a vigorous language, Sigrid Undset brings to life both communities and individuals.
