Roam through history, enjoy spectacular views, indulge in superb food, and witness some of the world’s most stunning fjords. Welcome to Bergen, the capital of Fjord Norway!

Even though Bergen is Norway’s second-largest city, it has a lovely small-town vibe and atmosphere. Houses clinging to the mountainsides, old wooden architecture, and narrow streets packed with cosy cafes and shops.

The Bergen bucket list tends to grow long, so make sure you have enough time. Popular attractions include the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Bryggen Hanseatic wharf, the fish market, Mount Fløyen, Bergen Aquarium, and KODE Art Museums and Composer Homes.

Thanks to the fact that 10 per cent of the people who live in Bergen are students, you can be sure there is always something going on. Catch a concert, enjoy an exhibition, or spoil yourself by visiting the many trendy shops, bars, and restaurants.

You can easily combine urban city life and outdoor fun in “the city between the seven mountains”. Adore Bergen from above at the top of Mount Fløyen or Mount Ulriken or – for a real Fjord Norway adventure – venture into the UNESCO protected fjords.
