Welcome to private guided tours by the experts on Bergen’s 950 years of history. Guided walks and events for groups.

Håkon´s Hall

Håkonshallen på Bergenhus Festning

The hall of kings. Norway´s first royal castle built in stone, a banquet hall dating from the Middle Ages. Stunning architecture with quirky details.

The Rosenkrantz Tower

The most important Renaissance monument in Norway , a Medieval Tower dating back to the 1270s.

Today it is an exciting museum to explore. Moving through winding, narrow corridors and steep stairs, you can climb from the basement with 16th-century dungeons, to the cannon attic just below the roof.

At the top we can get out on the roof, where the guards had a stunning view of the whole city. Perhaps still the city’s best view!
