Discover the Solstrand Hotel & Bad, which was created by Christian Michelsen, who would later become Norwya’s first Prime Minister.

Solstrand Hotel & Bad was constructed during the historic reign of the United Kingdom’s famed Queen Victoria, who sat on the British throne from 1837 to 1901.

Built in 1896 by ship owner Christian Michelsen, Solstrand Hotel & Bad has entertained travelers both near and far for over a hundred years. Michelsen originally designed Solstand as a holiday retreat for Bergen’s esteemed merchants, in order to collaboratively brainstorm economic ideas. The fresh air and proximity to nature's wonders stimulated productivity and inspired creativity. Michelsen would later go on to become Norway’s first Prime Minister after the nation gained independence from Sweden in 1905.

Michelsen eventually sold the hotel in 1908. It then had several owners until the Schau-Larsen family bought it in 1929. Four generations later, the Schau-Larsen family continues to take great pride in extending warmth and hospitality to Solstrand’s guests. More recent renovations have expanded Solstrand’s offerings without compromising uits historical character. Located within a rich natural landscape, the hotel remains as a choice destination for exploring Norway's beautiful environment.
