W H E R E YO U R H I S TO RY I S C R E AT E D De Historiske - historic hotels & restaurants - is a unique membership organisation con­t ain­i ng many of Norway’s most charming hotels and restaurants. A very definite perception of the responsibilities of the proprietor is required to qualify, with the relating of history forming the setting for the guests’ own overnight stay and gastronomic experience. Our aim is to use the past as a backdrop for our guests, to enable them to create their own history based on experiences. It is our hope that these narrations may continue to live in the memories of our guests long after their return home.

Although the members of De Historiske each have their own distinctive characters, you will find that they have features in common: a warm welcome, good service, a friendly atmosphere and high quality in every respect. The quality standards that the group has in common ensure a generally high standard in the group, and our values of ”hospitable”, ”personal” and ”quality conscious” shall aid us in achieving our shared vision: Take your story home. Welcome!

A WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE IN HISTORIC SURROUNDINGS! De Historiske – historic hotels & restaurants are visible evidence of our past. At the same time, they are evidence that the past continues to live in the present. We want to offer our guests experiences against the backdrop of our history, so that they in turn have their own stories to recount in the future. Thus you create your own history. The members of De Historiske are brimming with experiences, both inside and outside. Here are some examples:

Outdoor activities

Play a round or two of golf, try your luck at angling, go hunting or horse riding, play a little tennis, take a dip in the pool, feel the wind in your sails, go downhill skiing, soak up the landscape from a horse and carriage, or go glacier walking. All these activities and more are available in the vicinity of De Historiske - historic hotels & restaurants.

A romantic excursion, or time for yourself!

Leave the hustle and bustle, and enjoy a little time with your loved one. Our luxury settings 4

or delightful wellbeing centres will undoubtedly spoil you and revitalize you to cope with a hectic everyday life.

Delicious food and wines

Our members offer some of the best available in the choice of food and wines. You are served in a style that transforms your meal into a feast. Dinner is served!

Our multi-faceted culture

A multitude of cultural experiences await you both at the De Historiske and in their surroundings. If you are interested in cultural history, pictorial art, arts and crafts, architecture, music or interior decorating, a tour of our member hotels is an experience in itself. If you want to go to museums, theatres or exhibitions, or to enjoy the landscape, whether natural or cultural, you will find just about all you want within a short distance of our members.

H I S TO R I C H OT E L S Our hotels are not ”ordinary” hotels. They are landed estates, country houses, manors, large and small timber-built hotels in pseudo-Swiss and Jugend (Art Nouveau) style, old coaching inns and many more historic buildings that have been transformed into beautiful, small, romantic hotels. This, and the passion we feel about our role as hosts, is what primarily characterises De Historiske! A stay at one of our hotels is above all about giving you a warm, personal and welcoming experience in an atmosphere of real quality where the focus is always on the guest. We offer fine cuisine based on the very best ingredients, vintage wines from our wine cellars, original artworks on the walls, cultural experiences of the highest quality,

6

interiors and decorations based on long traditions, first-class service and comfort, exciting history, a romantic atmosphere, peace and quiet, spa treatments, golf and much, much more. Our hotels represent much more than a comfortable bed and a good meal: first and foremost we represent a rich diversity of experiences and activities, both indoors and outdoors. Your challenge is to choose something you don’t want to miss! No matter what you choose, we will always do our best to make you feel that this is ”a good place to be”. Welcome!

The Fortress is best known for the sinking of the German cruiser Blücher by Colonel Birger Eriksen and his men on the night of 9 April 1940, giving the King and government the opportunity to flee Norway. The site offers museums

of military history, cannons, a guest harbour, bathing beach and exhibitions. A large number of major cultural events are also held here through the year. We have many years’ experience of organising and hosting various events, and our staff go out of their way to make sure our guests enjoy themselves. We look forward to seeing you!

OUR RESTAURANTS Norwegian food traditions are deeply rooted in Norwegian culture, to this very day. The challenge is to find these gastronomic experi­ ences outside the Norwegian home. Accordingly, we offer a concept designed to highlight historic restaurants in Norway. The Historic Restaurants group is constantly increasing its membership. See www.dehistoriske.com for updates on new members.

How will our guests benefit?

First and foremost, through access to information about historical restaurants in a town or area that you may not be familiar with. The hotel you are staying in will help you book a table at a historical

restaurant, and guests living at a Historical Hotel will be given priority. It will be reassuring to know that the restaurant radiates an atmosphere of ”a good place to be”, and sets a high standard in terms of service and quality. Our main objective is to fulfil your expectations that the meal should be an experi­ ence. Accordingly, the Historic Restaurants are bent on providing you with a unique food and wine expe­ rience provided by an enthusiastic staff possessing sound gastronomic knowledge. Our intention is to leave you with such a deep impression that you spread the word of your enjoyment to a wider audi­ ence. Dinner is served!

A lton a A .D. 1614

Altona has a proud history dating back to 1614 and has been home to one of the oldest known public houses in Bergen. It represented the very centre of culture in Bergen for a period of time. During the second half of the 18th century, it was home to both Det Harmoniske Selskab and Det Dramatiske

Selskab, amateur musical and theatre groups respec­ tively. Today, the six-room basement building is once again a “public house”, with its beamed ceil­ ings in the two largest rooms and brick vaults in the remaining rooms, the traditional fireplace and new bar – this is an exclusive wine bar and brasserie.

In 1927 Oslo architect Lars Backer won the com­ petition to design the new Ekebergrestauranten. The original restaurant was built as early as 1916, by Tiedemanns tobacco factory. Two years after the competition, in 1929, one of Europeʼs foremost buildings in the Functionalist style was complete, to the delight of all the people of Oslo. Today it is a listed building, and any renovation work is based on

Towards the end of the 1990s Ekebergrestauranten was closed and left to dete­ riorate, until Christian Ringnes and Eiendomsspar bought the site and announced a large­scale invest­ ment. Together with restaurateur Bjørn Tore Furset, they have now created a modern building that still retains all its classic features.

At the top of Fløien, at the end station of the Fløibane funicular – 320 metres above sea level – is one of Bergen’s most unique restaurants, Fløien Folkerestaurant. The restaurant building was opened on 13 July 1925, providing Bergen with a landmark at the top of the town’s most popular hill. Breathtaking views over the town of Bergen, exciting menus from

a “heavenly” team of chefs – most probably the best way to experience Bergen! The panorama view from Fløien is one of the most beautiful in Bergen. You can gaze out over the town, the bay, islands, hills, all the way out to the North Sea. Particularly recommended at sunset and as dusk falls.

Gamle Raadhus, the old town hall of Christiania (now Oslo), was built by the deputy mayor Lauritz Hansen in 1641 with financial support from King Christian IV. Gamle Raadhus was originally built to be the city’s first town hall, but was later used as a fire station, church, private residence, high court, the cityʼs assembly rooms, a prison, Freemasonsʼ meeting place, restaurant and museum. The origi­

nal prison cells have been preserved in the build­ ing’s basement and serve today as a wine cellar and banqueting room for up to 20 people. In 1856 the building was transferred to the restaurateur Matheus Helseth and a restaurant was opened on the ground floor. After many years in decline, Det Gamle Raadhus opened its doors once again in 1983, newly restored and with new owners.

DE HISTORISKE IS HELPING TO MAKE TOURISM MORE SUSTAINABLE! For generations, many of De Historiske’s member hotels and restaurants have sought to offer their guests a flavour of Norway’s history – ideally with local ingredients, cultural history and a distinctive style of hospitality. For our members to deliver on this, Norway’s brand as a tourism destination must nurture the country’s unique natural and cultural values. This is why cooperation in the tourism industry is important, and De Historiske has contributed to and is a signatory to the “Roadmap for Norway’s tourism industry”. The industry holds enormous potential for low-emission solutions, is labour intensive, touches on many economic sectors along the value chain, and can nurture Norway’s natural and cultural capital by shifting towards greener, cross-sectoral and experience-based hospitality. This is important for De Historiske, and our 94

hotels and restaurants enable our guests to experience architectural styles, historical buildings and local food, and enjoy friendly, genuine and inno­ vative hospitality. De Historiske’s members are representatives of both authentic experiences and genuine Norwegian traditions, and take pride in nurturing nature, culture and the environment of their home town. Our members work continuously to reduce food waste, develop menus in close collaboration with local producers and suppliers, exploit geothermal and seawater heating, offer their guests bikes to explore the local area, etc. This is sustainability in practice, and De Historiske has also been certified by Miljøfyrtårn – the Eco-lighthouse foundation – ensuring continuous development in the best interests of the environment.


DE HISTORISKE MEETING AND FUNCTION ROOMS De Historiske offers meeting and function rooms that are perfect for smaller meetings, conferences, kick-offs, all types of company events, weddings and other private parties. Our meeting and function rooms are authentic and offer a warm atmosphere, with hosts who strive to provide friendly and personal service. The historic settings that our properties offer our guests underline and reinforce a lasting impression of warm hospitality. Our members offer function rooms accommodating 10 to 800 guests and representing different eras of Norway’s cultural history.

Members can tailor experiences to suit guests, with the icing on the cake being the gastronomic delights based on outstanding culinary art and high-quality local ingredients. Why not give one of our function rooms a try – where history comes alive for our guests. More information: www.dehistoriske.com or contact the members directly.

“THE CULINARY ROUTE” EAST TO WEST OR VICE VERSA For generations, many of our member hotels have had a clear focus on providing guests with “a good meal”. We want to show tourists travelling the roads of Norway that our country has so much more to offer in the way of food than hot dogs and hamburgers. We make use of the absolutely best local ingredients, the best local suppliers and aim to be perfect hosts, recounting the history of both the restaurant and the menu. Follow the “culinary route” and get to know the best of Norwegian food. The hotels and restaurants selected for the “culinary route” have been hand-picked using the following criteria; 102

THE “CULINARY ROUTE” – WITH A FLAVOUR OF COAST AND FJORD In recent years fresh seafood has gained welldeserved recognition and popularity worldwide, making it especially exciting to be able to offer selected restaurants and hotels serving genuine topclass seafood – Norwegian seafood from the coast of Norway. Norway boasts extensive resources in our sea and coastal areas, resources which we

106

exploit by means of fishing and aquaculture. The resulting culinary experiences are based on worldclass ingredients. Norwegian seafood has on several occasions been used in the Bocuse d’Or World Cuisine Contest, and De historiske now includes celebrated kitchens along our lengthy coast which,


through the generations, have developed recipes to delight guests. Over time they have also taken new inspirations from other cultures and traditions, such that the exquisite dishes from sea and fjord served today offer culinary experiences reflecting the variety of Norway’s culinary culture. It is therefore with the greatest pleasure that De historiske invites travellers to enjoy our third “Culinary Route” – with a flavour of coast and fjord.

Or perhaps you’re drawn to the charming Telemark Canal, the popular and spectacular Rallarvegen – the Bergen Line construction road, popularly known as the ‘Navvies’ Road’ – or picturesque Hardanger with the dizzying rock formation called Trolltunga, the Troll’s Tongue?
