As Norway’s second biggest city and gateway to the fjords, Bergen is understandably high up on most visitors must do list.
But the city is far more than just a good place to stay on your way to the fjords. It oozes history around every corner and packs in some of the country’s best restaurants and attractions. Our Bergen travel guide will reveal everything you need to know about this west coast city.
Bergen is a great base for exploring the very best of the Norwegian fjords, but you’ll miss out on so much if you don’t devote at least a day to the city itself. If you are able to, consider arriving by the Bergen line railway, frequently voted as one of the best train journeys in the world.
