Our home

Our apartment is located in the very centre of the picturesque city of Bergen. It consists of two large living rooms, two bedrooms (one with a king size bed), a kitchen, a tiny bathroom/WC and a laundry room spread out on an area of approximately 100sqm. The large windows are looking to the north-east and to the south, and there is a spacious balcony facing west (sun until about 22.00 in summer). From the living rooms one can see the funicular going up and down Mount Fløyen, one of the tourist attractions. The apartment is fully furnished with antique pieces in oak and mahogany, and fully equipped with household utensils.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in an area called Nygårdshøyden which is part of the campus of the University of Bergen. However, Nygårdshøyden is a residential area built up during the last decades of the 19th century with apartment blocks for the growing bourgeoisie of Bergen.
In between the apartment blocks there are clusters of tiny timber houses painted in various colours and an abundancy of plants and flowers around.
There may be some occasional loud partying by the students during the first weeks of the semester (August and January), but normally the district is calm.
A quick walk down the street one arrives at the city's main square, Torgalmenningen, and further to Bryggen, the UNESCO-listed wharf of Bergen, with buildings from the Hanseatic times.
