Norway Bergen - Gamlehaugen – The Royal Residence in Bergen

We visited the Gamlehaugen Royal Residence today, this is where the Norwegian King and the Norwegian Royal family stays when they visit Bergen. It has a main building and several smaller buildings on the property. The garden is large and open for public, you can even go swimming here. Very nice for strolling and picnics too.

We wanted to join a guided tour inside the main house but it was too many people there. They accept only 15 people per group. So we will join a guided tour next time we visit Gamlehaugen.

Getting to Gamlehaugen

It is situated a few kilometers south of the very center of Bergen. You can get here by using the public bus lines.
