Receptions and dinners in Bergen

Social events go hand in hand with conferences and congresses. Bergen can offer venues ranging from the small and intimate to the most exquisite.


Bølgen & Moi

Bølgen & Moi Bergen is located in what used to be the former Bergen Kreditbank, a building designed by Herman Schirmer that replicates the style of the Italian new renaissance. The building consists of majestic rooms covered in marble walls, tall pilasters, grand chandeliers and a heavily ornate roof decorated with all sorts of details. Bølgen & Moi appreciates art and so they decorate their restaurants with art work by some of our most accomplished artists. It is the perfect place for both small and large conference dinners in a special surrounding.

Maximum capacity: Banquet: 600; Reception: 800; Restaurant: 140

Cornelius Seafood Restaurant

Cornelius, situated on a small island just outside Bergen, is of Norway's best and most exciting seafood restaurants. Here you can enjoy one of the most exotic experiences the shores of Western Norway have to offer in beautiful surroundings. At Cornelius Seafood Restaurant you can both "meet and eat". There are meeting facilities for small groups or you can just bring your conference guest for a special dinner location.

The heights of Fløyen

Sitting majestically on the summit of Mount Fløyen with a breathtaking view of Bergen and surrounding areas, the Fløien Folkerestaurant is a beautiful and stylish building, built in 1925 and restored in 1992.
