In 1894 it was decided to build a railway between Christiania (now Oslo) and Bergen. In 1902 the construction road was ready as far up as Finse
and there was a need for somewhere for the workers to stay overnight. The first ‘hotel’ at Finse was viewed as not much more than a shelter for bad
weather, but soon the tourists started coming too.
The Norwegian state decided to build a mountain lodge in the same location, which was completed at Easter 1909. The need for overnight accommodation
increased after the opening of the Bergen Line, and the first extension was built as early as the lodge’s first year in business. The hotel at Finse emerged like
a fairy-tale castle on the bare mountain.
