业主说明: The Haakon’s Hall is almost seven hundred and fifty years old, and was built by King Haakon Haakonsson as a royal residence and banqueting hall. When his son Magnus Haakonsson Lagabote married the Danish princess Ingeborg in 1261, 2000 guests were invited. The King held court in the stone hall says the sagas. At that time Bergen was Norway’s largest and most important city, and the Haakon’s Hall was the site of major national events, such as the drawing up of Norway’s first complete set of laws. Inside the thick stone walls there are still echoes of the medieval court’s solemn ceremonies and riotous feasts. As a national cultural monument,the Haakon’s Hall is still used both for royal dinners and other official occasions. It is easy to spot where His Majesty the King usually sits. Closed during the Bergen International Festival, Christmas, Easter and on other special occasions.
