Description

The lighthouse is located on the sunny cor, where Korsfjorden meets the sea. This landmark in the west is the first to meet those who come by boat to Bergen from Europe and has a unique and spectacular location.

Dramatic story
The lighthouse was staffed until 2002 and has a long and interesting history dating from the 1800s, through the dramatic events of the 2nd World War, some dramatic days in January 2005, when the keeper's house was destroyed by the violent extreme weather "Inga ". Some of the tracks by Inga’s devastation is still there, and is part of the lighthouse's unique history.

Renovated in 2010
In 2010, yet another chapter in this story began, when the lighthouse was taken over by the Stangeland foundation and municipalities on both sides of Korsfjorden. The three main buildings on the island was completely renovated and redecorated to 11 overnight rooms with a total of 22 beds, and a conference / party room. The idea was that such groups as businesses and organizations should be able to hold events there, as well as cultural events etc.

New providor
Panorama Conference Hotel offers packages including transportation from Panorama Hotel to Marstein Lighthouse. Transport will be done with either RIB boat or helicopter. Please contact Panorama Hotel for questions and booking.
