Idyll, life, and bustle among picturesque wooden houses.

The iconic Bryggen in Bergen is the oldest part of the city, built about 1000 years ago, and it is listed on UNESCO's World Heritage List. Additionally, this is Norway's third most visited tourist attraction, surpassed only by the Fløibanen funicular and Holmenkollen. Here, it's bustling with life, featuring small shops, galleries, and a variety of cozy eateries. From Bryggen, you can easily stroll over to the Fish Market, where you can indulge in delicacies as fresh as they come.

The city between the seven mountains

Fløibanen takes you from the center of Bergen to the top of Mount Fløyen in only 6 minutes, which is an experience in itself. From the top, you can enjoy the view over the city, the fjord, and the beautiful landscapes of western Norway. This is also a perfect starting point for further hiking into a spectacular high-mountain nature. On paths and trails suitable for all, you can take the hike over Vidden from Fløyen to Ulriken, where Ulriksbanen provides you with a fantastic descent.
