Charlottenlund Sportshotell [source: Perspektivet Museum]

History Buying areas of Tromsøya was allowed after 1830, which many businessmen took advantage of. People began in around 1840 to build summer houses in these areas. Charlottenlund is one example, owned by Dr. Nissen. He named the area after his daughter Charlotte. A sportshotel was established in 1900, as well as an amusement park, restaurant, cafÊ and a telephone. The owner, Ludvig Abrahamsen, brought tourists and people from the center up to Charlottenlund with a horse and carriage. The place was again sold in 1917. Today the old sportshotel is gone, but the place is still used for amusement and fun. [source: wikipedia]
