The Manor House from 1665 between fjord, glacier, 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. Read more

Rosendal Gardens

Ludvig Rosenkrantz and Karen Mowatt’s little manor from the 1660s is surrounded by beautiful and historic grounds, including a Renaissance garden, a romantic landscape garden and the kitchen garden. From Rosendal Garden you get a grand view of the enveloping mountains Malmangernuten, melderskin and Laurdalstind, and of the waterfall Hattebergfossen and Hardangerfjorden. The garden has been built up over several hundred years of changing styles and fashions in gardening, Here you can experience more than 300 years of garden history. Read more

Art Exhibition 2023

Mari Slaattelid is one of Norway’s leading contemporary artists. It was not by chance that she was awarded first prize in the Carnegie Art Awards in 2000, and in 2019 was made artist for the Bergen International Festival Exhibition. Slaattelid is an exceptional colourist. At the same time, she often has a more theoretical perspective, by, for example, initiating dialogues with older artists such as Lars Hertervig or G. B. Tiepolo. This strategy is remarkably productive, because with this approach she can both articulate something about the older artists she converses with, and her own work.
