Bergen

Bergen

Not for nothing was Bergen the site of the world’s first umbrella-vending machine: it rains on average 275 days a year. But the wilderness setting that drives the city’s climate also gives it a unique beauty. Norway’s medieval capital shelters in the deep fjords of the far west, ringed by towering mountains.

The city was a major European trading centre and Bryggen, the old Hanseatic wharf, is Unesco protected, its stone and timber merchants houses now dwellings for artist studios and seafood restaurants who buy supplies like king crab from the market in Torget. Walk through the narrow alleys to Nordnes peninsula and next to the Aquarium is a commemoration to the 350 witches who were burnt here. A funicular connects the city centre with Mount Fløyen above, where you can access an extensive network of hiking and cross country skiing trails that thread their way through the seven mountains, or enjoy truly spectacular fjordland views.
