Gjerdrum is a municipality in Akershusmarker county, Norwaymarker. It is part of the traditional region of Romerike.

General information

Gjerdrum was established as a municipality on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt).

Gjerdrum borders the municipalities of Nannestadmarker, Nittedalmarker, Lørenskogmarker, Skedsmomarker, and Sørummarker. The administrative centre of the municipality is the village of Askmarker.


The municipality (originally the parish) is named after the old Gjerdrum farm (Old Norse: Gerðarvin). The first element is the genitive case of a river name Gerð and the last element is vin which means "meadow" or "pasture". The river name is derived from the Norse word garðr meaning "fence" and so the meaning is "the river whose function is a fence (and/or as a border)".


The coat-of-arms is from modern times. They were granted in 1993. The arms show a traditional Norwegian form of Snow fence. The arms are also canting because the name of the municipality refers to a fence.


The local sports team is Gjerdrum IL.
