This ancient building sits right on the edge of the harbour keeping watch for centuries. It is authentic, aged and wonderful. It is easy to get to and surrounded by park like setting. Very much worth the time and effort.

Although much of this is under construction, the tour of a 900ad castle and its ruins were interesting. Its expensive though, and no discount considering much of it is closed and the self-guided tour was somewhat confusing and disoriented. I'd perhaps see how far along...More

Such a fun self-guided tour through the labyrinth of different rooms and floors, and a great insight into many facets of Bergen history. Worth it.

This area and building is interesting to visit and provides an awareness of the significance Bergen has played in the history of Scandinavia and the world.

This is worth a short visit. The hall is named after its first builder King Hakon Hakonsson. My visit included a tour guide who gave us a short history of the hall including the changes it went through over the years.

A lot of it is big rooms with chairs but the last room was worth it a huge banqueting room with large window

This would be a pleasant venue for a special event, but there is very little to see, for which you will pay $10-$20, depending on your age or if you have already paid for another Bergen museum. Save your $$$.

Make sure you do the tour. They will explain you the history of the hall and some stories around it.
