Pride 2019

Pride 2019 is coming up!

Across the Nordic countries, a new city each week celebrates diversity, love, and belonging by bringing the cultural expression of the LGBTIQ community to the streets. Listen to music, dance the night away, watch powerful theatre productions, immerse yourself in visual arts and design and just have fun!

Are you attending Pride in one - or more - of the Nordic cities this year? Make yourself at home in one of our centrally located First Hotels, from Bergen to Aalborg to Gothenburg. Our hotels’ prime location means you can easily go home to unwind – or to freshen up and change clothes – before painting the city red (and blue, and green, and purple, and yellow...).

See you under the rainbow!

A new week, a new celebration, a new Pride.
