Ever since its opening in 1928, Grand Terminus has offered is own little world of impressions. One satisfied guest has described its character as “intense dignity”. It was Norway's first hotel to be given protected status, and not without reason. One of the world's most acclaimed whisky bars adds to the buzz. As do the beehives on the roof.
Terminus means “end stop” - a term that can be construed as positive or negative. For Grand Terminus, the first applies. There are thousands of hotels around the world with Terminus in their name. Grand Terminus in Bergen, however, is in a class of its own. The hotel boasts beautiful lounges and rooms of various sizes and styles, furnished and set for work or festivities. As not to overwhelm the guests with too much golden glory of bygone days, the walls have been decorated with expressive Norwegian contemporary art.
The train from Oslo to Bergen, winding its way across snow-clad mountains, takes six hours. When it finally reaches its end stop, it is right outside of Grand Terminus. There is a dramatic increase in expectations at the sight of the beautiful, neoclassical building. Those arriving by plane miss out on this experience. On the other hand, they have half a day extra to enjoy the hotel.
