Sometimes we stretch people a little longer when we actually have a heart for a village and history architecture can tell.
The state-of-the-art fellow Peter Andreas Blix (1831-1901) from Stavern was a renowned engineer and architect who designed several churches in Norway. Blix had a special heart for Vik and offered the last years of his life in the village. Here he had in his years his regular "Blix room" at Hopstock Hotel .
In Vik he restored beautiful Hove Steinkirke for his own funds. Later he did the same with the dilapidated stave church at Hopperstad. Both churches are today one of the largest cultural treasures in Vik. After his wish, Blix was buried under the floor of Hove Steinkyrkje.
In 1981, a memorial was set up over Peter Andreas Blix and the memorial stands almost right outside our hotel door. Please send a warm thought to Blix when you pass by.
Kviknes Hotel's traditions of hospitality go right back to 1752. The Kvikne family, which owns the hotel today, took over in 1877. Kviknes is a modern hotel with old-world charm and atmosphere and with 190 guest rooms is one of the most traditional hotels in Norway. The hotel is graced with an extensive collection of artworks and antiques, which give it its special style.
The hotel is placed in beautiful Norwegian national romantic scenery. The list of prominent guests is a long one. Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany was a frequent guest in Balestrand. Royalty, emperors, presidents, prime ministers, film stars and artists from many countries can be found on the guest list.
BesteBakken is located in the heart of Luster in Sogn og Fjordane. The place is created and built around the original Bestestova in Bakken, majestically placed high up on the hillside overlooking the entire Hafslo. Here lived Ola Alme.
