Rosenkrantz Tower - Bymuseet i Bergen, Bergen

(3.5/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Walk about the lush gardens of Rosenkrantz Tower - Bymuseet i Bergen, a prime Norwegian Renaissance monument, and learn about the history through multilingual signage. The governor of Bergenhus, Erik Rosenkrantz, built the fortified tower in the 1560s as his residence, although the oldest parts date back to the 1270s. The cellar houses the infamous dungeon, where prisoners were kept from the end of the 15th century until the 19th century. Climb up the slender stairway to the rooftop, which offers views over the harbor, waterfront, and city. Put Rosenkrantz Tower - Bymuseet i Bergen into our Bergen vacation builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Bergen.

  • Unfortunately, the Museum was closed during our stay, but the area is vast and accessible with beautiful views over the city and water

  • Unfortunately there was closed, so it was a quick visit for our part. It could easily be I would visit it again-where it is openly:D

  • Here you will see the history of the city, know about the wars and to events that took place in World War II. But it's small, not much to see, but just knowing that this building is still standing is amazing.
