 Barony Rosendal
 Baroniet Rosendal

At the entrance of the Hardangerfjord, this laid-back hotel is 2 km from the Barony Rosendal historic estate, 18 km from Fjellhaugen ski center, and 30 km from the Bondhusbreen glacier. Simple rooms feature free Wi-Fi and flat-screens. Upgraded rooms have fjord views, and suites add tea and coffeemaking facilities and sitting areas.

The families of Rosendal were important people in the cultural life of Norway. Authors Henrik Ibsen, Jonas Lie and Alexander Kielland and painters Hans Gude and Anders Askevold visited Rosendal often. Musicians like Edvard Grieg and Ole Bull were guests here. Often there were concerts in Rosendal, a tradition which is still kept alive.

The property remained in private ownership until 1927, when the last owner donated it to the University of Oslo. The manor is now operated as the Baroniet Rosendal museum. The museum offers valuable information about an important period of Norwegian history.

A guided tour of the manor takes visitors through the different periods of occupation from 1665 up to 1930. The oldest restored rooms are still decorated as they were in the early 19th century. The garden is often referred to as the most magnificent Victorian garden in Norway. Among other things around 2000 roses in bloom can be experienced here from June to November.
