When the Norwegian King visits Bergen, his official residence is Gamlehaugen. Gamlehaugen resembles a Scottish castle. Built in 1901 for Christian Michelsen, a ship-owner and prime minister. In 1925, Gamlehaugen was bought by the Norwegian State and placed at the disposal of the King. Crown Prince Haakon lived here when studying at the Naval Academy in Bergen.
Parts of building are open to the public, known as the “Gamlehaugen Museum”. The Gardens of Gamlehaugen is all open for the public. Nice place for relaxing in the sun, also nice for swimming in the sea.
Situated outside the center of Bergen.
