Scan Magazine | Norwegian Christmas Feasts | Klækken Hotell
A hotel venue steeped in history Klækken Hotell, originally a manor house dating back to the 14th century, is one of Norway’s leading privately-run hotels. Sophisticatedly decorated with art, and surrounded by a stunning, landscaped park, the hotel makes the perfect setting for any celebration, event or gathering.

As the lush garden is turning into a colourful display of auburn and gold, the countryside hotel is busy getting ready for arguably the cosiest time of the year, the arrival of the first snow and the festive season. There is something truly magical about arriving pre-Christmas at the fully decorated historical hotel, complete with a crackling fireplace. It’s the perfect venue with its central location, its vast grounds, superb food and personable service.
Comfort and leisure Klækken has been rebuilt, renovated and extended several times, with the comfort of the guests as the hotel’s highest priority. For instance, the 157 comfortable rooms all have splendid garden views. There’s an abundance of leisure and fitness activities too, from the year-round heated indoor pool that extends out into the garden, to the sauna, the fully
equipped fitness centre, an outdoor tennis court and a putting green, as well as giant chess for a more unusual and fun group activity. There is something for everyone.
Hotell is now offering to host your party at the adjoining historical farm, in a stylish converted barn.
A warm welcome The hotel is situated close to Oslo, yet in rural, idyllic surroundings. In the winter, the landscape is frosty and covered in snow. But whatever the season, you can always appreciate the warm and friendly welcome.
Parties and events For private meetings, there are exclusive boardrooms, whereas the hotel’s spacious, modern and bright conference rooms can accommodate up to 600 people. And to ensure that everything runs smoothly, the hotel offers tailored events and a dedicated event host. But what truly is the heart of the hotel is its kitchen, serving everything from a wholesome breakfast with organic produce to delicious lunches and dinners that please both the eyes and taste buds. The resident sommelier is at hand to recommend the perfect pairing from the hotel’s own wine cellar. Private dining rooms are also available. Or for a truly different experience, Klækken
Klækken Hotell is located only an hour from Oslo and 50 minutes from Oslo Airport.
