This Holiday in a nutshell
  • friendly city renowned for its colourful harbour district
  • notes for a self-guided city walking tour included
  • choice of well-located, welcoming hotels
  • includes 24hr Bergen City Card
  • enjoy as an add-on to another Inntravel holiday in Norway

Norway’s second city is a friendly place with a relaxed atmosphere. The setting is magnificent – the sea reaches right into its very heart, while behind it rise seven wooded hills, the tallest of which towers 643 metres above the city. Another, Mount Fløien, can be reached by funicular railway for a bird’s-eye view of the fjord capital.
If you look closely at the cathedral, you’ll see an unusual addition to the exterior: a cannonball embedded in the wall. It dates back to 1665 and the Battle of Vågen between the English and Danish fleets.
     
One of the main focal points is the inner harbour, the Bryggen, whose tall, brightly painted, wooden warehouses have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in recognition of their medieval architecture. Protecting the harbour is one of Norway’s oldest and best preserved castles, and elsewhere are streets of tightly packed timber houses which transport you back to medieval times.
