BERGEN CITY

«..Beautiful.., ..rich in traditions and history.., ..charming and lively..»

These are superlatives visitors to this city typically choose when asked to describe Bergen. With currently 225 000 inhabitants and a history dating back some 925 years, this pulsating city offers a unique atmosphere. The city is a former Hanseatic port and the birthplace of the great 18th century writer of comedies, Ludvig Holberg, and the famous 19th century composer Edvard Grieg.

Bergen offers Europe’s largest areas of old wooden houses, still in use. The down town Fish market is truly world famous and a heaven for salmon lovers!

Bergen is known as «the gateway to the fjords» and is the natural starting point for breathtaking fjord explorations. Bergen is thus the ideal travel destination, offering an attractive combination of mountains, sea and historical city
