Welcome to our event venue Gjestestuene

Hire Gjestestuene to showcase Norwegian folklore and culture
Gjestestuene itself is a 100 year old building in traditional style, designed by a famous Norwegian architect, Magnus Paulsson. Four rooms on two floors make up the venue. You can rent the whole building and organize a totally exclusive event, or you can hire just a single room.
