Choose the Paulsens Hotell when you travel to the Vest-Agder region of southern Norway. This historic, budget, Lyngdal hotel offers a sample of life in simpler times, surrounded by a lovely natural environment with 3 major fjords: Lyngdalsfjorden, Grønfjorden, and Lehnesfjorden.

Originally established in 1884, the Paulsens Hotell re-opened in April 2011 to continue providing hospitality to those visiting the charming coastal town of Lyngdal. Its inviting restaurant, Paulsens Café, serves traditional Danish and Norwegian meals. Free parking is available at the hotel. Amenities also include complimentary wireless Internet access, a meeting room, and a seasonal outdoor pool.

The Paulsens Hotell is located near the center of town, on the southern banks of the Lyngdalselva (Lyngdal River). Among the local landmarks are a regional museum called the Klokkergården bygdetun (Circle Museum) and the Lyngdal Church, the second-largest wooden church in Norway with 7 burial mounds nearby that date back at least to the Middle Ages. A 5-minute drive to the west takes you to the beach at Kvavik, while a 10-mile drive to the south brings you to Rosfjord’s beach and the Sørlandsbadet water park and fitness center. Nearby is a 819-acre (330-hectare) protected natural area called the Nedre Lyngdalselva dyrefredningsområde (Lower Lyngdal River Animal Conservation Area). The Paulsens Hotell is approximately 45.7 miles (73.5 kilometers) from the city of Kristiansand on European Route E39.
