Bergen is a lovely coastal city to the west of Norway that, while relatively isolated, is one of Norway’s most inspiring destinations. Bursting with history and surrounded by stunning scenery, travelling around Bergen will see you touring ancient harbours and cruising across gigantic fjords.
Bryggen, the oldest part of Bergen, should be your first stop. Situated at the city’s wharf, traditional Norwegian architecture is showcased here, with rows of colourful wooden houses lining the water’s edge. Between the 14th and 16th centuries, this port was a trade centre. Sadly, fires destroyed many original buildings from that time.
The Torget Fish Market is another must-see. Located under the tourist information centre in a decidedly Norwegian glass-walled building, the market sells everything from fish and chips to prawn baguettes and seafood salads. At times, local specialties like reindeer and elk are also sold here.
For a bird’s-eye view of the city, head to the summit of Fløyen mountain. It’s possible to hike or take the cliff railway to the top. From the summit, you’ll see the city below and the surrounding towns nestled between the fjords that stretch out towards the ocean in the distance.
There’s plenty to see and do in Bergen. The best way to see it all is to tour the region by car.
