Fretheim Hotel Norwegian cousine at it's best

Glory days’ past

The hotel was built in Swiss chalet style at the end of the 19th century, and over the years has grown and developed in pace with the increase in tourists and travelers using the Bergensbana railway and, later, the Flåmsbana railway. The hotel is immediately adjacent to the Nærøyfjord UNESCO World Heritage site. The oldest part of the hotel has been carefully restored to reveal beautiful details, with open fires and antique furniture in the lounges, library, conference room and, not least, in all the historical guest rooms. Take yourself on a journey of discovery and enjoy the atmosphere of glory days’ past.
