Lille Lungegårdsvannet or Smålungeren is a small 5acre lake in the centre of the city of Bergen in Hordaland county, Norway. The octagonal lake is a natural lake that was historically connected to the nearby Store Lungegårdsvannet bay via a short strait, but the strait was filled-in in 1926. Today the lake is located in a park, in the city centre. There is a large decorative fountain located in the central part of the lake.Take a look at our Bergen trip planning app to schedule your visit to Lille Lungegaardsvannet and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
Historically, the lake was much larger than it is now. As the city grew, Lille Lungegårdsvannet slowly but steadily shrank to its present size by adding fill to the sides of the lake to reclaim land. The sides were straightened and it was artificially made into an octagon shape. It finally reached its present shape during the mid-20th century. Historically, there was a short strait that ran between this lake and the nearby Store Lungegårdsvannet bay. As this lake was reduced in size, the strait was also changed. In 1926, the strait between this lake and Store Lungegårdsvannet was removed and replaced by an underground culvert system. Because of this underground connection, it is possible to see fluctuations in the height of the lake due to the tide.
