Kongsberg Youth Hostel is a high class hostel in the town centre, yet in quiet surroundings.

All rooms are en-suite, with TV and Wi-Fi. Facilities include a fitness room, Internet, conference rooms, and luggage storage.

Kongsberg is known as the Silver and Skiing Town! It was built on silver mining from 1624, and is surrounded by snowy hills and mountains. There are many cultural monuments originating from its wealthy silver mining period. The Numedalslågen River, with its impressive waterfalls, flows through the town centre, and the surrounding countryside. The town’s character reflects its mining culture and skiing history, which can also be experienced in the Silver Mines, the museums and the magnificent baroque church towering near the youth hostel. There is also an 18-hole golf course just outside of town.

Excellent petit déjeuner, le plus varié que nous ayons eu (incluant 2 types de saumon non fumé, des gaufres, crèpes etc..)

Utrolig god frokostbuffet,veldig koselig og serviceminded personale. Det eneste å utsette på oppholdet var at å komme seg opp i overkøya,var vanskelig,selv for ungdommen.Og madrassene var litt harde. Ellers et fint overnattingsted og kommer garantert tilbake :-)
