We have visited Gamlehaugen as a part of our tour in Bergen. Gamlehaugen in English means "old hill". This is official Royal residence of the Norwegian Kings in Bergen. Location is perfect! Beautiful castle on the shore of Nordas fjord. Good spot for photographers.

Currently reserved for royalty but very interesting story about one of the great leaders of Norway and key player in independence from Sweden.

Lovely grounds and great views.

Not spectacular by European castle standards but worth a visit.

Gamlehaugen in my hometown Bergen is one of my favorite places I Bergen! It has a beautiful park (open to the public all year round) and a small “beach” which is very popular in summer time.

Gamlehaugen is the official residence of the King of Norway when he is in Bergen. It is the former home of ship owner and prime minister Christian Michelsen. The building was erected in 1900 and given to the Norwegian state as a royal residence, museum and "national property" in 1925.

Remember your camera!

This has a lot of wonderful old furnishing and is well kept. The lines were not very long and you are able to tour at your leisure which is nice

The Royal Residence is set in a lovely park. If the flag is flying it means that the royal family is in residence.

Great place to spend the afternoon. Strolling the grounds. For a tour in English you'll need to be there early afternoon.

Lovely public park with the neo-gothic palatial house as the main feature. Huge lawns where people go for picknik or sunbathing in the summer. You can also go for a swim in the beautiful lake. Great photo opportunities all around. The house is open for guided tours 3 or 4 days a week. Not when I visited though, so I missed out. Not the easiest place to go to by public transportation if you are a tourist. I recommend taking a taxi.

I was there for a walk during a sunny afternoon and it has been the most amazing place I have been! With the sun light reflecting on the sea and the fabolous castle...like in a fairytale!

A very pretty building set in an expansive parkland - set above water - in a fetching neighborhood. My guide & I had the place almost to ourselves - the only thing marring the experience was the place was being renovated & there were scaffolds or walls of heavy plastic sheeting ruining photo ops.

I was there on my first day in Norway. And it was absolutely nice. It’s a very clean place and there’s everything you need to start your Norway journey. The castle looks wonderful and the garden is very nice. I was there for about 1 and half hour walking through the garden and sit at the sea calming down after the long flight from Germany. Right after I decided to walk to Troldhaugen. It’s about 4 km to go and it took about 1 hour. It’s a easy walk just the last few meters up to Troldhaugen are a little bit harder (comparing to the rest) If you’re having enough time I’ll recommend to do this walk. I saw so wonderful landscapes just by waking from one village to an other.
