Utstein Monastery
utstein lite

Utstein Monastery is Norway’s only preserved mediaeval monastery. It lies amidst beautiful scenery at Mosterøy in the municipality of Rennesøy. It was here that Harald Hårfagre had his estate. In the Middle Ages it was the monastery for the Augustinian order, and later, in the 18th century, the estate for the bailiff.

Utstein Monastery is today run as a museum, conference centre, reception and concert facility. The Utstein Monastery Foundation became a part of Museum Stavanger on 1 Januar 2012.

The monastery is situated on Klosterøy in the municipality of Rennesøy, a 30 minute drive from Stavanger via the Rennfast undersea tunnel.

See the panoramic view of the church, refectory, library, the monastic estate, garden, wine cellar, the monks’ cellar, the Garmann rooms, or the fantastic view from Kneberfjellet to the west of the monastery. Click
