Welcome to Dalen Hotel in Telemark.
The Dalen Hotel is a fairy tale hotel, build in 1894 in grand romantic style with dragonheads, towers and balconies. The paper "Varden" wrote in 1894: "The new elegant furnished Hotel at Dalen, at the top of the Bandak waters, is now ready to receive guests".
After the early golden days and later years of decay the hotel was in 1994, after years of restoration finished to welcome its guests again, all restored back to its original beauty. It has the same soul, calmness, peace and atmosphere as the wooden castle that opened for more than 110 years ago.
