The Hotel access is good, but the city is not great for those confined to wheelchair or who have difficulty walking. Many cobbled and some very steep streets.


Bergen is known as the ‘Gateway to the Fjords’, yet there is still plenty to explore within the city itself. The brightly painted gabled houses and narrow cobble-stoned alleyways of the famous Bryggen Wharf, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, surround the bustling Vågen inner harbour. Bergen also has UNESCO ‘City of Gastronomy’ status thanks to its varied and vibrant food scene. Bryggen Wharf is also home to the city’s thriving flower, fish and fruit markets and historical museums. 

For panoramic views over the city take the funicular to the top of Mt. Fløyen. Concerts and cultural attractions abound for those on Bergen holidays, including a visit to the home of Norway's most renowned composer Edvard Grieg. As well as city sight-seeing, the efficient high speed express boats and trains open up a wide variety of day trips into the heart of the fjords, including the magnificent Sognefjord and Flåm Railway.
