Things to do in Bergen

Founded in 1070, Bergen grew up around its colourful harbour - the hub of commerce, seafaring and craftsmanship.

The architecturally unique Bryggen Wharf, has now come to symbolise the cultural heritage of the city and has a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage list.

The people of Bergen are proud of their city's traditions and look after their past because it is a part of their living present.

"...a city with its feet in the sea, its head in the skies and its heart in the right place" 

The Bergen Card gives discounted access to most of Bergen's main attractions.

Stroll through the freshest of fresh fish markets, or hike around the seven peaks overlooking the city. Take a trip up Fløibanen funicular for more leisurely access to the stunning views.
