Bergen

Norway’s second-largest city may also be the most beautiful city. The locals certainly think so!

Fly to Bergen

Small white wooden houses and narrow passages. Boys and girls with drums and drumsticks. Bergen is different in so many ways, especially if you get to hear a drill corps practice for May 17th: Constitution Day.

In the city of seven mountains, there is room for everyone. Whether you seek a nice bar, an aquarium with penguins or the rush of the fish market, you will be comfortable here.

If you want a marine experience on a night out, go to Fiskeriet. The restaurant at the art museum KODE is internationally acclaimed and serves seafood made with local ingredients.

If you want to go «to sea» yourself, take the Beffen ferry across the fjord. This is the pride and joy of the city!
 

Activities in Bergen

‘Bergensers’, the citizens of Bergen, are known for their cheery disposition. They love a good party! Every summer, the festival Bergenfest is held at Bergenhus Fortress, one of the oldest castles in Norway. Musicians come here from all over the world. We like to think the old kings from 750 years ago would appreciate the fortress being used for this purpose!

Another important annual event is the Seven Mountain Hike. Locals and tourists alike put on their best lycra and hike from Lyderhorn to Sandviksfløyen. It is as much a social event as anything!

But Bergen is also the place for those who are more laid-back. You can walk along the docks, or get on the Fløien funicular and enjoy the view – if the weather allows!

    BEAUTIFUL WESTERN NORWAY: When the sun comes out in Bergen every now and then, the city basks in the warm light, and it is easy to see why the Bergensers love their city so much.

    A MAGICAL SUNSET: Do as the Norwegians do, and pack a ‘niste’ of food to enjoy at the top of Fløyen or Ulriken. From there, you can watch the sun set, and from Ulriken, you can see the most distant islands of Øygarden.
