Norwegian Pavilion

Cieplice / Bad Warmbrunn

Following the enthusiasm for the architecture of the Nordic countries, many Scandinavian-style buildings were constructed in the German Reich with architectural forms that refer to the Viking era. An outstanding example is the Wang Temple in Karpacz Górny (Brückenberg). Around 1890, Eugen Füllner, an industrialist and owner of a paper machine factory in Cieplice Śląskie-Zdrój (Bad Warmbrunn), founded the Norway Park and built a Scandinavian-style restaurant there, based on plans sent from Oslo. The Norway Pavilion is still located in the Norway Park in Cieplice today. In the meantime, it housed a restaurant, as well as a branch of the Natural History Museum in Jelenia Góra. A major renovation of the wooden building was awarded in a competition in 2018.
