Entitled – The Hardangerfjord. At Rosendal on the Hardangerfjord.
From a Photo by Valentine, Dundee.

Below the picture an inscription reads:

The Hardangerfjord. – Starting from Bergen one may take the steamer to Teroen, where the Hardangerfjord is entered. The population of the Hardanger district, by the way, is only 14,000. The journey from Bergen to Rosedal takes 6 and a half hours. The neighbourhood is extremely picturesque, and at the head of the valley is the Ringerifos, a fine waterfall at the foot of the Folgefonden Glacier, which, together with Suldal and Odde, can be reached by this route. The baronial mansion of Rosendal is surrounded by a park at the foot of Mount Hatteberg, and is interesting because it is one of the few manorial houses left in Norway. It was founded in 1678. Subsequently the mansion reverted to the Danish Crown,
and was finally made over to Count Rosenkrone, whose arms are carved over the gateway. This title became extinct in 1837. Large numbers of boats are built in Rosendal. At the church of Kvindherred here, Mr. Gladstone attended service during his trip to Norway in 1885. On returning to Bergen from Rosendal, one may proceed by rail to Vossevangen. This line, though only sixty-seven miles long, is a marvellous piece of engineering, and for a great part of the way is hewn out of the solid rock, which is pierced by forty or fifty tunnels, the longest of which is 1,400ft. in length.
The speed of the train is about twenty miles an hour, and there are no first-class carriages. Norway is evidently a democratic country; the nobility, too, have long since been abolished. Vossevangen, the terminus of the line, is surrounded by charming scenery, and from the chief hotel a new road leads across the hills to the Hardangerfjord. On the other side of the lake (there is an amazing quantity of water in this country) the mountain, Vangsfjeld, rises to a height of 4,300ft.
