A contemporary boutique hotel immersed in Bergen’s rich musical heritage
Much like the famed piano concerto that it’s named after, Opus XVI weaves separate parts and influences together in perfect harmony. This boutique hotel, run by descendants of Norwegian (and Bergen-born) composer Edvard Grieg, celebrates Bergen’s cultural heritage while remaining wonderfully contemporary.
Every element of this luxury city centre hotel plays a part in telling Grieg’s story. One of the architects behind the building, which was once Bergen’s grandest bank, was the composer’s cousin. Today, original features such as the central hall’s marble columns and polished granite walls stand alongside contemporary, Scandi-chic design. Many of the rooms and suites are named after Grieg’s masterworks.
With its location on Vågsallmenningen plaza, Opus XVI puts you steps from some of Bergen’s best sights. Stroll along the historic Bryggen waterfront, lined with berry-red wooden shops and houses. Hop on the funicular railway up to Mount Fløyen. Or cosy up in one of the many artisan coffee shops, and watch the world (and the weather) go by. When it comes to stylish city breaks, Opus XVI’s contemporary take on authentic heritage gets a standing ovation.
