Famous beyond Norway

The first hotel at Stalheim opened in 1885 and by 1895 could already accommodate 150 guests. The hotel’s high standard and the fantastic views from Stalheim soon made it famous beyond Norway.

One of the best-known visitors to the fjords of Western Norway, Kaiser Wilhelm II, stayed at Stalheim many times, and a memorial stone bearing the inscription ‘To commemorate the visit of Kaiser Wilhelm II to Stalheim’ was erected to mark a visit in the 1890s.

The present-day hotel, which is the fourth on the same site, sleeps 220 guests. The hotel’s light and airy lounges, furnished with a harmonious mixture of exquisite European antiques and modern Scandinavian design, have a unique atmosphere, characterised by tradition and comfort.
