Christmas at Kronen Gaard Hotel 

Welcome to a magical yuletide gathering in historic surroundings!

No place evokes the holiday atmosphere quite like Kronen Gaard Hotell.

Driving up the driveway lined with massive, old beech trees adorned with lights, walking up to the hotel through a torch-lit path, and sitting by a fire burning bright in the dark winter night; it’s easy to feel the festive, yet cozy ambiance that comes with the holidays in Norway when you’re at Kronen Gaard Hotell.

The scent of Christmas greets you right when you walk in through the door, as it wafts through from our open kitchen. We serve a variety of delicious, traditional Christmas food that you are sure to enjoy.
