Christinegård (also known as Christinelyst and Prahlgården) is a manor house located in the neighborhood of Sandviken in Bergen, Norway. The estate has a dominant position in the hillside overlooking Byfjorden. [1][2]

The main building was originally constructed around 1763. Bergen merchant and later Member of the Norwegian Parliament Michael Djurhus Prahl (1781-1851) bought the property in 1836. The manor house was largely rebuilt in Empire style architecture. The distinctive design and the many motifs reflect the influence of the architect, Ole Peter Riis Høegh (1806- 1852). From 1934 to 1958, this was the residence of the Bishop of the Diocese of Bjørgvin. [3][4]Archaeologist Asbjørn Herteig took over Christinegård in 1960.[5]
