Ny-Ålesund: Amundsenvilla

360° panorama

The Amund­sen­vil­la was and still is the director’s house in Ny-Åle­sund, but Roald Amund­sen used to stay here during his expe­di­ti­ons in 1925 and 1926 so it is gene­ral­ly known as Amund­sen­vil­la. During reno­va­ti­on work from 2009 to 2011, drawings were found under more recent wall­pa­per that had been made by mem­bers of tho­se expe­di­ti­ons!

The director’s accom­mo­da­ti­on is on the second floor, while rooms on the first floor are used for repre­sen­ta­ti­ve pur­po­ses. The­re is no public access to the Amund­sen­vil­la.

The direc­tor lived obvious­ly in a cen­tral loca­ti­on, so from here we can see Amundsen’s sta­tue, the ser­vice buil­ding that inclu­des the can­te­en and more important buil­dings.
