The colourful historical city of Bergen is known as the ‘Gateway to the Fjords’. The brightly painted gabled houses and narrow cobble-stoned alleyways of the old Bryggen wharf area surround the bustling Vågen inner harbour. Here are Bergen’s thriving flower, fruit and fish markets, historical museums, aquarium, and impressive variety of restaurants, galleries, shops and cosy bars. For panoramic views over the city take the funicular to the top of Mt. Fløyen or the cable-car up Mt. Ulriken. Concerts and cultural attractions abound, including a visit to the home of Norway’s most renowned composer Edvard Grieg. In addition to city sight-seeing tours, 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 or Norway in a Nutshell. Our hotels in Bergen offer a great choice of accommodation.
