Bergen hosts one international conference after another. This is understandable when you realise just how accessible Bergen is. An added attraction for conference organisers is the wide selection of activities and excursions that both Bergen and the local surroundings have to offer. With such a compact city centre, delegates benefit from everything being within walking distance.
The people of Bergen are proud of their historical background and determined to learn from it. Bergen has a long tradition as a congress city. The first major assembly took place in 1163 when Magnus Erlingsson was crowned King of Scandinavia. Naturally Bergen has been playing host ever since, not from a sense of duty but because of the city's genuinely hospitable nature.
Bergen has a wonderful location and world-famous surroundings. The seven great mountains and the fjords help to create an international yet completely idiosyncratic atmosphere. Bryggen, the Hanseatic quarter, is included on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
Often referred to as the Gateway to the Fjords, Bergen always has something to offer, no matter what time of year. As an international city full of history and tradition, it also possesses a real small-town charm and atmosphere. Fjord Norway and the city of Bergen offer you the ideal combination of nature, culture and exhilarating city life.
