Bergen, Norway's second largest city, lies clambering up the mountain sides, overlooking the sea. It is often called the gateway to the fjords, and many conference groups take the opportunity to combine business meetings in the city with day excursions to the fjords and mountains.
Despite the small-town charm and idiosyncratic atmosphere, Bergen is also an international, bustling city with plenty of cultural events. Bryggen, the Hanseatic quarter, is included on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
Bergen is famous for the seven mountains surrounding the city centre, the Hanseatic Wharf, the fish market, and one of Norway's biggest cultural events, the Bergen International Festival, which is held there each year.
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.
