Norsk Bridgeforbund - This is the website of the official Bridge Federation in Oslo, Norway.



The country of Norway has been historically divided into a number of districts for the sake of governance and administration. Many districts have deep and traditionally historical roots, and only partially coincide with today's administrative units of counties and municipalities. The districts are defined by geographical features, often valleys, mountain ranges, fjords, plains, or coastlines, or combinations of the above. Many such regions were petty kingdoms up to the early Viking age.

Note: The visitor will note that most of the following links are only in the language of Norway. Google Translate can be of great assistance in understanding the descriptions provided on the home pages.

The Norsk Bridgeforbund has also partitioned and structured the country into districts, which are listed below. A short description is provided, which generally includes the geographical location and neighboring counties.

For a detailed web presentation of the various districts of Norway the most accurate information on the Internet can be found at Norway Maps.
