Description

Hafslund Manor is one of the most beautiful manors in Norway. It has traditionally teemed with activity around Hafslund: farming, forestry, sawmills powered by Sarpfossen and timber trade. The transformation to electrical power represented a continuation of that tradition. From the second half of the 1600, Hafslund was self sufficient From the mid-1700, Hafslund was a highly developed community featuring its own school and welfare services for the poor. Technological advances made it possible to generate electrical power at the Manor's waterfall concession- a development that transformed Hafslund in 1898 into a modern industrial company..
The Manor's main building was built in 1762, after the former baroque Manor house was destroyed in a fire in 1758. Many well-known families such as Bildt, Werenskiold, Huitfeldt, Elieson, Holter, Wessel, and Rosenkrantz, have all been owners of Hafslund Manor. Few Norwegian Manors are preserved so carefully. The beautiful manor is a protected cultural heritage.
Hafslund Manor is owned by Hafslund ASA. The Manor is mainly used by its owner but opens its doors for guided tours every Sunday at 12:00, 1:00 pm and 2:00 pm from June through August. The beautiful English park is open to the public all year long.
