Håkon’s Hall was built between 1247 and 1261 by Håkon Håkonsson. It was the largest and most imposing building of the royal residency in the 13th-century when Bergen was the political centre of Norway.
Håkon’s Hall is 750 years old and was built by King Håkon Håkonsson as a royal residence and banqueting hall. When his son Magnus Håkonsson Lagabøte married the Danish princess Ingeborg in 1261, 2000 guests were invited. At that time Bergen was Norway’s largest and most important town, and Håkon’s Hall was the site of major national events, such as the drawing up of Norway’s first complete set of laws.
As a national cultural monument, Håkon’s Hall is still used both for royal dinners and other official occasions. The history of Bergenhus Fortress is long and eventful. In late summer we invite you to Festningsdagene, where you can play and learn much about Bergenhus Fortress since medieval times.
Brief introduction every hour. During the weekends 22 - 23 August and 5 - 6 September you can meet Queen Isabella.
