What to do in Bergen

Located among the Seven Mountains of western Norway, the city of Bergen is a tourist hub for international travelers—its locals are friendly, its views are breathtaking, and its flare for the unique is everywhere, from underground music to a radiant arts scene to a culture just as colorful as its hillside houses. While in the city, stroll along the harbor for a day of shopping at the Bergen Fish Market. Open year-round, though most popular in the summer months, the market sells more than just fish—browse stalls of fruit, vegetables, flowers, knitwear, handicrafts, artwork, and souvenirs, and then head back to your hotel through a row of antique wooden houses nestled into hillsides, a true Bergen experience. The Bergen Card gets you free admittance on city busses as well as discounts to Bergen’s museums and attractions.

Traveler Reviews of Bergen

I took the train across the mountains from Oslo, Norway, and enjoyed several days in Bergen in the summer of 1973. I stayed at a youth hostel up the mountain and took the Floybanen up to the hostel and spent rainy days at he l coffee shops and took in the scenery of the port and the colorful market with fish and fresh produce. Many fond memories and loved the cheeses!
