Bergen: venues for all types of event

As Norway's second largest city, Bergen offers plenty of scope for C&I planners.

Bølgen & Moi:  Located in what used to be the old Bergen Kreditbank, Bølgen & Moi has its own brewery and wine cellar that can host up to 36 persons for a seated dinner. Two further rooms can seat up to 400 persons and when added to the brasserie area, up to 600 people can be accommodated for dinner or 800 standing.  

Grieg Hall: The culture and convention centre named after composer Edvard Grieg has a foyer seating up to 1,200. The premises are suited to receptions and banquets, with a total capacity for a conference and meeting for up to 2,100.  

Bergen Aquarium: The aquarium has a meeting room that can be used for outdoor receptions for up to 1,200 guests or dinner parties for up to 200. For another water-themed venue, check out the sailing vessel ‘Staatsraad Lehmkuhl’, Norway’s oldest and largest sailing vessel of its kind, which has permanent moorings on Bryggen. The vessel can carry up to 350 passengers and can also be chartered for excursions and fjord cruises.
