Attraction details
Owner description: Snorre's sagas of the kings mention the site where Harald Fairhair is buried. In the nineteenth century it was believed the place described by Snorre had been located. This is where the national monument of the unification of Norway was erected in 1872, during the millennial celebrations of Norway's unification into one kingdom. The monument is located 2km north of the town centre.

We visited here to see what the monument was about.
It has a lovely walk along the coast and there is a campsite where you can get a coffee.

Haraldhaugen is the monument there is visit of people from the hole world. Around the big monument there are many smaller monuments, and the stone they are made of are from al the diferent parts of Norway. Thats the reson they are different in colors, but the same in shape. Haraldshaugen are in a nice place, you can go fore a nice walk, to a small ligthhous near by the sea. You can even go with a weelcheer. Close to the monument you also find a very nice campingplace, there they also have cabins fore rent. You realy are near the sea, and in the evening with nice weather you will see a beutyful sunset. Yuo will have a nice time in this aeria. You can even go fore awalk downtown Haugesund, or use car or take a bus near by.

I went here one evening whilst away on business. Although I was relatively dark, the monument had lighting giving it a unique view. The area seemed peaceful and an excellent place for a good old strole. Wish I could have visited in the daytime to take in the surrounding scenery. Defiantly worth the visit though
