The Utstein Monastery

Utstein Monastery is Norway's only preserved medieval monastery. It lies in beautiful surroundings on the island of Mosterøy.

Utstein Monastery is Norway's only preserved medieval monastery. It lies in beautiful surroundings on the island of Mosterøy. Once, it was also the site for the Viking King Harald Fairhair's residence. In the Middle Ages, it was a monastery; in the 1700s, it became the farm of the local magistrate. It was run as a farm until it became a museum in the 1930s.

At Utstein Monastery, you will be received by smiling guides dressed up in medieval costumes who proudly present their garden with roses, ornamental bushes and herbs. Come and experience the silence and magic of this special place!

See also Klostergarden for more adventures in the area.
