Luckily, it was long after opening hours, so nobody was in the building. The fire was so wild that the firefighters and the police could do nothing but watch the great building disappear. Now, after the nightmare, it is important to emphasise that the fire will have no impact at all on the rest of the wonderful tourist destination Jostedalen. The Breheimsenteret staff will still handle booking, ticket service and tourist information from Nigardsbreen Gjesteheim, by the driveway to the burnt down center. Contact details as before.
