Overview
More
Alvoen is one of Norway’s oldest industrial communities, with workers' cottages, production buildings and the mansion itself, which was the home of the owners, the Fasmer family. When King Haakon VII visited Alvoen in 1921, the legend says that Henrik Jansen Fasmer greeted him with the words: Welcome, Your Majesty, to my kingdom! Here the Fasmer family had created a small and successful industrial community, with a school, a savings bank, a library and a community hall for the workers. Alvoen Manor was also one of Bergen’s grandest private homes, and it has now been opened to the public. Here you will encounter the family history, industrial history, social history and art history, presented in a way that provides an exciting and picturesque glimpse of Norwegian social structures in the past. Open saturdays, sundays in June*, July and August. Closed 9 and 10. June.
