The welcome reception together with FVE, Thursday evening in Haakon’s Hall will be an opportunity to get acquainted with old and new friends and colleagues in a historical environment and with good food and drinks.
Haakon’s Hall was built between 1247 and 1261 by King 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. Now Haakon’s hall is used as a banqueting hall and for various official occasions.
Haakon’s hall is located close to Radisson Blue Royal Hotel.
The conference dinner Friday evening will take place at Restaurant Fløyen. We take the Fløybanen, a funicular, to the top of Bergen, approx. 320 meter above sea level. The view from Fløyen is among the most stunning in Bergen. The city, the harbor, the islands and the mountains give a special memory. We enjoy Norwegian food in unique surroundings.
In addition there will be guided tours in Bergen and to places near Bergen. One of these is Troldhaugen, the home of the composer Edvard Grieg.
