The manor from 1665 between fjords, glaciers, mountains and waterfalls

The Manor from 1665

The Manor from 1665

In 1658 there was a wedding between Norway’s wealthiest heir, Karen Mowat and a poor but proud Danish nobleman. Karen Mowat and Ludvig Rosenkrantz were given the farm Hatteberg as a wedding present. They built their home here, and called it Rosendal. It was finished in 1665. A guided tour at Baroniet Rosendal is a tour through different epochs. The rooms are influenced by owners over 250 years, and the manor is preserved as a home – the way it was when the last owners left in 1927.

"Welcome to the first Rosendal Chamber Music Festival: August 11-14, 2016! Nature, history, and culture converge in a unique way at Rosendal, and I can hardly think of a finer place for an intimate chamber music festival. I have played concerts at the Rosendal Manor House and Gardens for over twenty years and this place means something very special to me. Baroniet Rosendal cannot be described, it must be experienced." - Leif Ove Andsnes
