The Glavær cottage

The Glavær cottage

The oldest alehous/tavern in Sogn

As a part of Sogn Fjord Museum we find the Glavær cottage. This old alehouse/tavern was originally located on the island of Søre Glavær in the municipality of Gulen at the entrance to the Sognefjord. It was also called “Bondestova” (the farmer’s cottage) and this is the name that is painted above the entrance door. The cottage was probably built in the first decade of the 19th century.
