Fjordcruise Bergen - Rosendal and Barony Rosendal

  • Strandkaiterminalen, Bergen
  • +47 51895270
  •  /  km From You

Visit beautiful Rosendal on a day trip from Bergen. The trip includes a guided tour of the Barony and a two-course lunch.

The trip starts by taking the boat from Bergen to Rosendal. It takes around two hours each way, and you have around 3 1/2 hours in Rosendal, where you can visit the Barony and the famous rose garden or wander around the pretty village.

The Barony Rosendal:
The Barony is the smallest 'castle' in Scandinavia and the only one of its kind in Norway. Among other things, the Barony is famous for its impressive landscape park and rose garden and for the rich programme of cultural events it hosts, which include concerts, courtyard theatre performances, talks and art exhibitions. There is also a pleasant garden café next to the herb garden. Karen Mowat and Ludvig Rosenkrantz were given the farm Hatteberg in Kvinnherad as a wedding present, and this is where they built the small castle, which they named Rosendal. It was completed in 1665. A visit to the Barony Rosendal gives you the opportunity to wander among different style eras, from 1665 until the last owners left in 1927.

The Barony is a nice 1.5 km walk from the quay. If you need a taxi, the crew on board can book one for you.

The Barony’s famous rose garden:
The Barony Rosendal is set in beautiful, historical gardens, with a 300-year-old renaissance garden that abounds in roses, a romantic landscape park from the 1850s, and a kitchen and herb garden full of herbs, flowers, vegetables, fruit and berries. The gardens have been developed over the centuries, and feature different garden styles and fashions. Here, you can experience more than 300 years of garden history!

The trip includes a two-course lunch. You can sit indoors in Hagecaféen cafe, under the glass roof of the greenhouse with a view of the manor house and Mount Malmangernuten in the background, or sit out in the sunshine if the weather is good. Lunch is a selection of local salmon from Hjønnevåg, baked potatoes and a salad straight from the garden. Rhubarb cake made from the Barony's own rhubarb for dessert and coffee or tea. (Alternative lunch menu: local sausage from Rosendal instead of salmon, notify the waiter when you arrive.)
