Sandviken Church


Sandvik Church (Sandvikskirken) is a wooden Gothic hall church from 1881. The church has a slightly narrower polygonal ended choir in the east and a tower in the west that is located in the church's long axis. The church had gneiss as a building material with exterior cladding of granite.
Sandviken parish was established on 29 July 1874. The competition for a new church was won by architect Ernst Norgrenn. But after his death in 1880 the plans were modified and completed by architect Schak Bull. The church was completed in autumn 1881 and inaugurated in December 1881.

Hekse Steinen i Bergen

In 2002, a memorial called the Witch Stone (Hekse-steinen på Nordnes) was erected at the place of execution in the Nordnes neighbourhood of Bergen as a monument to the victims of witch trials in Norway. The inscription translates to 350 bonfire victims to miscarriage of justice 1550-1700.

Anne Pedersdotter (died April 7, 1590) was an alleged Norwegian witch. Her case was one of the most documented of the many witch trials in Norway in the 16th and 17th centuries. Together with Lisbeth Nypan, she was perhaps the most famous victim of the accusation in Norway.

Gamlehaugen

Gamlehaugen is a mansion in Bergen, Norway, and the residence of the Norwegian Royal Family in the city. Gamlehaugen has a history that goes as far back as the Middle Ages, and the list of previous owners includes many of the wealthiest men in Bergen. Today owned by the Norwegian state, the most recent private owner was Christian Michelsen, a politician and shipping magnate who later became the first Prime Minister of Norway after the dissolution of the union between Sweden and Norway. Michelsen commissioned the construction of the current main building at Gamlehaugen, where he would live for most of the rest of his life.
When Michelsen died in 1925, his closest friends and colleagues started a national fund-raising campaign that brought in enough money to allow the Norwegian state to purchase the property. The large English park was opened to the public the same year, and the first floor of the house was opened as a museum two years later. Gamlehaugen has been the Norwegian Royal Family's residence in Bergen since 1927.
