The Gateway to the Fjords Of Norway
Norway’s big city with the small-town atmosphere is full of history and tradition, and is a city with the ideal combination of charm, culture and absolutely stunning panoramic views.
Bergen’s hanseatic wharf dates back to the Middle Ages and is designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage site.
Strolling around the old streets and alleyways, you’ll discover the charm of the higgledy piggledy small wooden houses and the steep cobbled streets. Walk the length of Bryggen to the old fortress of Bergenhus, or drop in at one of the many museums and galleries, or the composer Edvard Greig’s home, and you’ll have sampled some of the city’s treasures. Bergen has plenty to keep you entertained and the many gourmet seafood restaurants and small friendly bistros will satisfy any discerning appetite.
Bergen’s charm is accentuated by its stunning surroundings. Travel to the top of Mount Floyen, or Ulriken, or any of the seven mountains that surround the city and you will savour Bergen and the unforgettable memory of the spectacular Norwegian Fjords. Bergen is the gateway to the fjords with wild and beautiful countryside, majestic mountains and dramatic landscapes, and a tour to this magical kingdom of fjords is a must.
Pristine wilderness, a charming city rich in history and culture, Bergen is a gem of a city and a visit here is certainly exciting and memorable.
