Categories: Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
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.
