Overview

Little park with a fantastic view over the Sognefjord and statue of viking Fridtjov the Bold!

The German Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany gave the statue of Fridtjof the Bold on 31 July 1913. The statue is 10.5 meters (34 ft) high and is situated on a 12 meters (39 ft) hight platform. By the uncovering on 31 July 1913, the German Kaiser said:  

In order to seek rest after heavy and responsible work, I seek to these surroundings. I have for the past 20 years travelled with my ship to the north, and in Norway I have been met by traditional germanic hospitality. I had an urge to show my gratitude towards the Norwegian people. Through the holy saga I found the opportunity to do so. I found the saga of the ruler from Balestrand, King Bele, Ingebjørgs father, the brave hero, most appealing. This is now unveiled before our eyes, King Bele by Gørtz' skilled hand on the burial mound in Balestrand, while Fridtjof is the masterpiece created by professor Unger.

Join Sylvringen on a Guided tour to visit the Statue and the Park.
