Recently, at the invitation of Visitnorway in Norway, I saw several extremely exciting meeting venues: The trip was under the motto "In the footsteps of William II through Fjord Norway". Even today, many hotels are reminiscent of the last German Kaiser - and can also be used for extraordinary meetings.

Stalheim

Overview

25 For many years, until summer 1914, Wilhelm II was a guest in the fjords every summer: our first stop is Stalheim, one of the favorite places of William II in Norway, where he has been staying since 1898 almost every year.

A memorial still reminds him today. The Stalheim Hotel not only offers a fantastic view of the Stalheimskleiva gorge, one of the steepest gorges in Norway, but also 124 rooms and meeting rooms, such as the hotel manager Tryvge Dugstad, who looks just like the twin brother of Bismarck. The prices vary, a standard double room costs from 1880 NOK (204 €).

Flam

Overview

After the average good food, the gorge follows steep hairpin bends down to Flåm, which is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Norway due to the picturesque Flåm Valley Railway and as an investor in the Hurtig route - and unfortunately overrun accordingly.

Hotel Flåmbryggen has 41 rooms and a conference room for 60 people. The highlight, however, is the internationally successful Aegir Microbrewery, which is located in a former stave church. It offers a picturesque fire place for group activities such as beer tasting. The beer also fits perfectly to the presented Viking dinner.

Balestrand

Overview

The ferry continues to Balestrand on the famous Sognefjord. Here Wilhelm II repeatedly visited the painter Hans Dahl - and here the emperor was also, when he learned in July 1914 news of the outbreak of war between Serbia and Austria-Hungary. Hotel manager Sigurd Kvikne of the 1877 built Kviknes Hotel proudly shows us the chair on which Wilhelm allegedly sat at the time. It is not far from the modern meeting venues for 450 people today. This old-fashioned hotel on the fjord offers 190 rooms and a generous breakfast and evening buffet. Price from 1750 NOK.

On Gaularfjell National Tourist Road, a road of superlatives, head up to a spectacular viewpoint over the Sunnfjord. A road of superlatives: Not only do we count 29 waterfalls in total, the vantage point was also built for 21 million Norwegian kroner.

Vassenden and Nikolai Astrup

Overview

From here you can go to Vassenden to the Nikolai Astrup Museum Astruptunet. Today, Astrup is considered to be one of the most important Norwegian painters whose works today bring millions. At the beginning of 20. It was here, with his ten-headed family, that he lived here in the small huts that now house the museum. The directly on the fjord is still relatively undeveloped and therefore radiates a very own magic.

In the near future, meeting rooms will be created, so far groups can use the nearby Thon Hotel Jølster (16 meeting rooms, meeting capacity for up to 360 persons, 129 rooms) in Skei.

Geiranger fjord

Overview

We are approaching the peak of the journey, the famous Geiranger Fjord, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 1476 high-altitude Dalsnibba offers scenic views across the fjord and the cruise ship below. Geiranger has only 200 inhabitants, but in the summer every year 800.000 visitors come, of which 350.000 of cruise ships.

Wilhelm II visited Geiranger between 1890 and 1908 whole 11 times, a monument reminiscent of the visit. The Hotel Union is for the highlight of the tour: Not only does it offer 197 rooms, very nice meeting rooms and an excellent buffet, but also a fantastic pool right on the fjord. Prices are NOK 1230 (134 €). The Geiranger fjord service also offers numerous outdoor and team-building activities on-site - such as the Electric Car Tours with a Renault Twizy, small, eco-friendly eMobile with 80 KM range, which recharge when rolling down, from 800 NOK (87 € / Hour). In addition, you can also do sea kayaking, eBiking or hiking.

Eye

Overview

From Geiranger, the ferry continues via Hellesylt and through the Norangsdalen valley to Øye. In addition to Wilhelm II, the Hotel Union Øye has also hosted numerous other prominent figures, such as Queen Silvia of Sweden or Queen Sofia of Spain. It is completely furnished in Swiss style and has 81 rooms decorated in original style.

While the food is good, it is a little exhausting that visitors are constantly walking through the house. The also very nicely furnished meeting rooms are in the basement, but have daylight. The prices vary, a double room costs from NOK 1790 (195 €), a double room with sky bed or balcony from NOK 2250 (245 €).

Ålesund

Overview

The last stop is Ålesund. The 1904 completely destroyed in a fire and then reconstructed in a youthful style has eight hotels, with the Scandic Park having the largest event rooms for up to 1.000 participants. Very nice and centrally located at the harbor with a view is also the modern First Hotel Atlantica with 73 rooms and meeting rooms.

Ålesund also offers a variety of activities, such as hiking (eg to the Aksla viewpoint), a visit to the modern art nouveau center or kayaking through the city. For example, Ålesund Airport is served by KLM from Amsterdam. From Ålesund it goes on by bus, ferry or Hurtigroute to the various destinations.

A very exciting meeting location is the lighthouse Alnes, which is located outside the airport on the island of Godøy. Clearly better food than the name suggests, in addition with great view, can be in the XL diner. Ålesund also visited Kaiser Wilhelm, after he had already sent 48 hours after the fire aid.

Summary

Overview

Overall, the picturesque landscape of Fjordnorwegen represents an extraordinary backdrop for meetings and meetings. If you do not want to travel by bus or ferry, the longer trip by Hurtigroute is recommended, where you can also hold meetings - I already reported about two years ago.
