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. The Bryggen harbour is also home to the city’s thriving flower, fish and fruit markets and historical museums. Visitors can benefit from purchasing the Bergen Card, which provides an excellent value way to explore the city and the nearby surroundings
