9951 Hamningberg / Vardø
Hamningberg is located to the northeast on the Varangerhalvøya. There is a fishing station found in Hamningberg that was left deserted in the 1960s. The buildings are south facing on a gentle grassy slope between a low-rising rocky mountain and a shallow bay. Since there was not a protected harbour, boats were dragged onto the beach after having been out at sea. Currently no one lives here during the winter, but the buildings serve as holiday cottages during the summer. When residents occupied Hamningberg year-round, the main building served as a shop, rural post office and residence. The following structures from of the old complex, dating to the 19th century, remain intact:
* The main building (the Hansen House)
* Outbuilding, barn and stable (adjoined to the main building)
* Cottage where the retired owner lived (Olaf's House)
* Bearing house called the Larson House (formerly a residence)
* Flower garden (next to the main building)
* Kitchen garden (south of the main building)
* Four fishermen's sheds (Russian fishermen's sheds)

A fish processing plant with a quay, built during the post-war period, is also a part of this complex. Today it no longer operates as a fish processing plant, but is leased to tourists during the summer season. The fishing station owner's buildings, dating to the 19th century, are situated on a hundred metre wide stretch of land that leads from the base of the mountains to the sea. All of the structures located on this property are protected under the Cultural Heritage Act.
