Bergen

Norway

“I needed some physical training for this city,” said a friend of mine after he visited Norway’s second city.
The name of the city means simply “mountain”. As you walk around Bergen, there are some iconic Norwegian houses and alleyways for you to explore, and you are always walking up- or downhill. Take a pair of comfortable shoes!

Day 3

On your way back to Bergen, we recommend you to stop at Rosendal.

Visit Rosendal

What to do in Rosendal:

Rosendal Palace

Rosendal Palace is located at the Djurgården Hunting Park and was built in the 1820s for King Karl XIV Johan, the first Bernadotte.

Rosendal was originally a summertime pleasure retreat. It has never been a residence in the modern sense of the word. It was merely intended as an escape from the formalities of the court life at the Royal Palace.

One of the leading architects of the time, Fredrik Blom, received a royal commission to draw and build the palace building. The building was produced in the fashion of a prefabricated house.

The palace stands today largely as it did in Karl Johan’s lifetime, which makes Rosendal a unique documentation of the European Empire style, also known as the Karl Johan style in Sweden.

The palace is open to visitors for guided tours in the summer months.

The Barony in Rosendal

The Barony in Rosendal is the smallest “palace” in Scandinavia, the only one of its kind in Norway and a major attraction in Western Norway.

Among other things, the manor house is famous for its magnificent Renaissance garden and its rich calendar of cultural events, including concerts, courtyard theatre and art exhibitions.

The pleasant garden cafe is situated beside the herb garden.

Hattebergfossen and Furebergsfossen waterfalls

Just outside Rosendal and near the viewpoint Baroniet, there is a very nice waterfall called the Hattebergfossen. This is the unofficial name but used by locals. Access is easy, so why not to pay a visit?. North of Rosendal, there is the magnificent Furebergsfossen along road 551 — this one you really shouldn’t miss.

Hansa Teutonica and Fløibanen

We will visit the Hanseatic Museum and see how merchants in the 18th century lived and worked. A beautiful view waits for you at the top of the funicular Fløibanen. There are some lovely trails and paths to hike in the forests at the top of the mountain, in case if you feel adventurous.
