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.

Events 2016

Thea Hjelmeland with band

07.07.16 19.30, The Court Yard

From the deep Norwegian fjords comes Thea Hjelmeland with a rich and varied palette of folk-pop intermixed with strongworld music elements. The multi-instrumentalist from Førde builds upon her own unique brand of creativity by orbiting a universe of old stringed instruments, multi-layered vocal harmonies and pulsating rhythms, over which her crystalline voice soars and sparkles. Singing tales of sorrow and longing,hopes and fears, and brimming with raw, emotional beauty.

Maria Mena with musicians

13.07.16 17.00 - 19.30, The Court Yard

"Norway’s Maria Mena is breaking her silence with the release of her seventh studio album “Growing Pains.” In the period following Mena’s divorce, she struggled to initiate the writing process until something unique started to happen. Her subconscious took over and Mena ended up visualising half of the new album in her sleep. Amongst others, this includes the heartfelt single “I Don’t Wanna See You With Her”."
