Ludvig Rosenkrantz and Karen Mowatt’s little manor from the 1660s is surrounded by beautiful and historic grounds, including a Renaissance garden, a romantic landscape garden and the kitchen garden. From Rosendal Garden you get a grand view of the enveloping mountains
Malmangernuten, melderskin and Laurdalstind, and of the waterfall Hattebergfossen and Hardangerfjorden. The garden has been built up over several hundred years of changing styles and fashions in gardening, Here you can experience more than 300 years of garden history.
Flowering most of the year
From the first Snowdrops in January there are flowers and bushes in bloom most of the year. The spring is beautiful with fruit trees in bloom, tulips, daffodils and ascension lilies.
In early summer the Wisteria blooms and covers the southern wall of the manor with wonderful blue stems. I June bloom the rhododendron and asalea in many different colours.
The roses bloom in full by July, and stay in bloom far into the autumn. The Rose garden is limited westward by a 300 year old buksbom. It is a leftover from the old renaissance garden of Ludvig Rosenkrantz and Karen Mowatt.
