Håkon’s Hall – The Hall of Kings!

Håkonshallen på Bergenhus Festning

Come and see the hall of the king himself! Hundreds of knights and royal dignitaries celebrated weddings and coronation ceremonies here for hundreds of years.

How high do you think the roof is? In the lower storey, we see where the king’s scribes sat writing with their quills, and the king once kept his treasure trove in the cellar!

Rosenkrantz Tower – Kings and cannons!

Rosenkrantz Tower, Bymuseet i Bergen

At Rosenkrantz Tower, you can make your way up steep stairwells from room to room, through chambers and parlours where the princes and princesses of the Middle Ages lived. In the cellar, you can see the dark and eerie dungeon, and almost right at the top, you find the cannons, ready to be fired against pirates and enemies who were trying to capture Bergen. In Norwegian only.
