Bergen Holidays Overview


Known as the ‘city of seven mountains,’ Bergen sits on the Western coast of Norway and is its second largest city. Bergen is renowned for its beautiful scenery, great hiking opportunities and its culture. It has a thriving underground music scene, having given the world many great artists and bands.

Bergen is surrounded by seven fjords and seven hills and is charming and beautiful. At the centre of the city are the bustling Vågen Harbour and the World Heritage Site of Bryggen. It has dozens of good museums, a dynamic lifestyle and friendly locals.

Bergen is also one of Norway's most important centres for culture. It is home to a number of important festivals like the Bergenfest, Nattjazz and the Bergen International Festival. The city's philharmonic orchestra is one of the oldest in the world, dating back to the year 1786. Bergen was also the home of Edvard Grieg, Norway's best composer.

Bergen's city centre is scenic since it faces the Byfjorden fjord. The area has several older buildings; the most significant among these is the 12th century St Mary's Church. Downtown Bergen is also home to the Bergen Art Museum, one of the largest in Nordic countries.

The outdoor fish market in the city has a long and rich history and is an important place to understand Bergen's position in the fish trade. Throughout the market are various seafood stalls and souvenir shops.

While Bergen has many tourist attractions, its strongest points are its architecture, culture and atmosphere. The best way to experience the city is by hiking its mountains, spending time at a local café and strolling around the streets of the city.

Bergen holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Bryggen

What is it? Bryggen, the site of the old medieval quarter, is a charming, compact area of brightly coloured wooden homes that once housed the city's merchants. Steep cobbled lanes are lined with a vivacious blend of cafes and artists workshops. The Hanseatic wharf area, with many buildings dating from before the 17th century, has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is considered to be one of the most important examples of the civilisation of a medieval settlement in the world. This was once the working area of the merchants and is the oldest part of Bergen, characterised by a maze of lopsided wooden buildings with pointed gables facing the harbour. The Bryggens and Hanseatic Museums as well as the 12th century St Mary's Church are all in the Bryggen area. At one end of the wharf is Bergen's famous fish market, a colourful market also selling flowers, fruit, vegetables and souvenirs. Hours of Operation: Phone:
