Unique Ambiance in 400-Year-Old Premises

Under the low ceilings of one the oldest inns in Bergen, there are six different ‘caves’ with a total capacity of up to 100 people. In the meandering passages, guest will find intimate seating in rustic surroundings. The two largest rooms have beamed ceiling, whereas the others are stone vaulted. This is the ideal space for those important conversations – in a comfortable armchair by the open fire, or during informal wine tastings and meals with your friends, family, or colleagues.

Inn dating back to 1614

In the 1600s, Bergen had 10,000 inhabitants and was Norway’s largest town. It also had some 400 inns of which Altona was one of the most renowned. The inn welcomed guests from all walks of life, ranging from craftsmen to affluent townsfolk. It also featured the town’s most prominent concert hall, and was the birthplace of musical and dramatic societies such as Musikkselskabet Harmonien, Det Dramatiske Selskab, and Det Nyttige Selskab.
