The Rosendal Manor House from 1665 gives a fascinating glimpse into the period when Norway was under Danish rule. In 1658, a destitute Danish noble by the name of Ludvig Rosenkrantz struck it lucky in marrying Karen Mowat, Norway’s richest hieress. Her money was soon put to use building the Rosendal Manor House in a stunning setting between mountain and fjord. Today, the Manor House and the gardens from 1850 are a living museum. Prior to dinner onboard this evening, we will enjoy a tour of the Manor House and a short concert in the Red Room.
Yacht docks right in the center of this city; the cradle of the Vikings, where Harald Haarfagre (Fairhair) became king of all Norway in 872. Great for strolling, the lovely market place and “Old Stavanger”, a cluster of old small white wooden house, are close by the dock. The landscape varies from fjords to steep mountains such as the Lysefjord and the Pulpit Rock, just an hour’s boat tour from the city center. Stavanger is also the oil capital of Norway where much of the support for the North Sea oil fields is based. The Petroleum Museum on the waterfront tells the story of this offshore oil adventure.
Skagen is Denmark’s northernmost city on the tip of Jutland and is the country’s main fishing port. It is well known for its painters as well as watches.
