With family roots, respect for tradition, development and the staffs expertise, Klostergården is a place that gives an authentic experience on the island Tautra. We are on historical land as we are situated right beside the ruins of the old Cistercian monastery from the year 1207. Klostergården offers you different possibilities either you want to come and enjoy a meal at the restaurant, stay in one of our cosy rooms, visit our farmshop and gallery, taste beer from our brewery, Klostergården Håndbryggeri or just enjoy the atmosphere.
At Tautra, the pearl of Trondheimsfjorden, known for its history, beautiful nature and rich bird life, you find Klostergården. Klostergården is family owned and drifted by father Ståle and son Jørn. Ståle is the head chef and makes homemade food based on family recipes, local ingredients and our farm food products. Delicious meals and cakes are served in our restaurant which are open from February until Christmas. We have three different buildings for accommodation in rooms with good space, light and view either to the sea, the ruins or the garden. Klostergården also has capacity for meetings and events, both in- and outdoors. The old farmbuilding "Fjøset" is restored and popular as a charming place to hold different kinds of celebrations, meetings and so on. We offer tastings with beer and whiskey from the brewery, where Jørn is brewmaster. In 2014 our "Alstadberger" was awarded the first Specialty brand for a Norwegian beer. To get this mark, the beer must contain Norwegian-produced malt and hops. We collaborate with gallerist Bente Riseth and can also offer our visitors to enjoy Norwegian art in her Galleri Tautra. Our farmshop is open all year and has a wide selection of local products, books, interior, soaps from The Maria Monastery, beer from our brewery and things for children. As we work with many good collaborators, we can arrange a diversity of happenings on requests throughout the year with an emphasis on closeness to nature and local attractions, for example guided walks with different content, a visit at a greenhouse on Frosta, or «fish and dine at the boathouse» combined with a stay at Klostergården.
