Historical Gems, Majestic Surroundings
Just off the Hardangerfjord, Norway’s second-longest fjord, Rosendal’s natural neighbors include towering snow-capped mountains, the massive Folgefonna National Park, and its picturesque harbor.
Ideal for short strolls and sightseeing, several historical treasures await and offer a glimpse into life in the Middle Ages. Natural beauty can be found in every direction, too—a longer hike in the many trails surrounding the town reveal lakes, rivers, waterfalls, and misty, green valleys.
If you’re not venturing out of town, savor some fresh, local food overlooking the fjord at Martha Meidell restaurant, or venture to Barony Rosendal for lunch in its 300-year old rose garden.
