Norway Bergen – Rosenkrantz Tower

Rosenkrantz Tower in the center of Bergen dates back to medieval times. The tower was erected by the governor of Bergen Castle (Bergenhus), Erik Rosenkrantz, and served as a combined residence and fortified tower to Bergen. Earlier structures existed -King Magnus Lagabote’s (Magnus the Lawmender) keep from about 1270 and Jorgen Hansson’s defences from about 1520. Both these were incorporated by Erik Rosenkrantz. The view of the sea front is amazing. You can take a tour of the castle there and learn some interesting stories about life in those days.
