Awards & Accolades

2022 Historic Hotels Worldwide Awards of Excellence Nominee Finalist
Originally built by Magnus Poulsson during World War I, Lysebu Hotel was used as a personal residence for shipping magnate Anton Fredrik Klaveness. After World War II, Lysebu was donated to The Danish-Norwegian Cooperation Fund in appreciation of the aid Norway received from Denmark during the German occupation. Lysebu is still owned by The Fund, which uses the income generated by the hotel to support its greater mission. This wonderful destination is an ideal gateway for guests seeking to explore Norway’s natural wonders. Outdoor enthusiasts flock to the ranges that surround Lysebu to traverse through their great hiking and skiing trails. The hilly forested region of Nordmarka creates a serene atmosphere that is especially unique to Lysebu.
