The History of Bergen Børs Hotel

In 1862, Bergen received its own stock exchange building, located in one of the city's finest locations. Ever since its opening, Vågsalmenningen 1 has been a key meeting place for influential locals and prominent visitors. The unique, late classical building was originally designed by Franz Wilhelm Shiertz, before being rebuilt according to designs by Lars Solberg between 1890 and 1893.

The stock exchange building is considered one of Bergen's most important neo-Renaissance buildings. In addition to hosting prominent guests in Bergen Børs Hotel, it is also home to one of Norway's national treasures. The restaurant Frescohallen – adorned with murals with motifs relating to Bergen trade – is definitely worth a visit.

The hotel also houses the acclaimed and luxurious restaurant Bare by Pak and the newly opened tapas restaurant Fresquito.
