Join us for a walk taking you through the history. The large and stately stone building we know today as the King Håkon’s Hall is more than 750 years old. The hall has had several names throughout history, Steinhallen, Breidastova, Langhuset, Magasinhuset and Provianthuset.

When the King Håkon’s Hall was built in the middle of the 13th century by Håkon Håkonsson, the area was called Holmen, where both the church center and the royal court were established.
