Store Lungegårdsvannet

Store Lungegårdsvannet is a bay located in the city and municipality of Bergen, Norway.

The bay separates the city centre, located in the borough of Bergenhus, from the southern boroughs of the city, Årstad, Fana and Ytrebygda. The bay is situated at the end of the fjord of Puddefjorden. The bay is named after the farm of Lungegården, the estate of the Danish nobleman Vincens Lunge. In the Middle Ages, the bay was named Alrekstadvågen, after the royal farm of Alrekstad. In the 1930s, the bay, and the area surrounding it, was an attractive recreation for the inhabitants of the city, with boat harbours and beaches. Starting in the 1950s, the bay was seen as a resource for the city to cover the acute need for free land. As a result, there have been several fill-ins of parts of the lake, mainly on the northern shore. The bridge Gamle Nygårdsbro crosses the bay between it and the fjord.
