Meet the locals... At Bergen Aquarium you may encounter this spotted wolffish. The species is famous for having a big mouth (usually friendly, but can take quite a bite), and can withstand storms and the cold particularly well (its blood contains anti-freeze in order to resist the cold). Both the people of Bergen and wolfish may seem bit frightening, but that’s mainly just for show. When you get to know them, you have a friend for life. Welcome to the Aquarium.

10 ABOUT BERGEN

Grieghallen

ONE CITY – ENDLESS OPPORTUNITIES What has really made Bergen famous the world over is its unique charm and atmosphere. You have to experience it for yourself. Bergen is worth exploring on foot. Strolling around old streets and alleyways where people have lived for centuries is like a fairy-tale. You will see small wooden houses, cobbled streets with stone steps in the steepest parts and flowers everywhere.

Composer Edvard Grieg

Stop off at the Fish Market to mingle with the crowds. Visit the Aquarium and see the fish, penguins, sea lions and seals in their natural element, as well as crocodiles, snakes and spiders.

Stroll along the listed wooden buildings at Bryggen to the old fortress at Bergenhus, or call in at one of Bergen’s many museums and galleries. And it’s not far from the city centre to Mt. Fløyen, Mt. Ulriken or another of the seven mountains that form the backdrop to the city. The panoramic views of the city, the fjord and the ocean are breathtaking. HISTORY AND PROUD TRADITIONS Bergen was founded by King Olav Kyrre in 1070 AD, and it became Norway’s first real capital in the 13th century. Until the 1830s, Bergen was the biggest town in Norway

Follow visitBergen on

and the largest in Scandinavia for a period during the Middle Ages. The reason for this was that Bergen was a major European trading and seafaring port and one of the Hanseatic merchants’ four most important trading centres. Bergen has today a population of approximately 275.000. Trade and seafaring still play an important part in Bergen’s economy. Industry, trades, tourism, fisheries and the oil and gas industry are other important sectors. Bergen is also a major university city. A EUROPEAN CITY OF CULTURE There are many good reasons why Bergen was designated European City of Culture in 2000. The city has fostered several famous sons who have achieved worldwide fame and put their home town on the map. Edvard Grieg, Ole Bull and Harald Sæverud all became famous, each in his own way. As a City of Culture, Bergen can now also boast an innovative and trendy music and design scene. Bands have emerged on Bergen’s music scene that have captured the imagination of the whole of Europe: Ylvis, Kings of Convenience, Röyksopp, Sissel Kyrkjebø, Kurt Nilsen and Sondre Lerche, to mention just a few. The city’s musical traditions also include Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, which was started as early as 1765 and is Europe’s oldest orchestra of its kind. Norway’s first permanent theatre, Den Nationale Scene, was founded in Bergen in 1850. Together with 60 other festivals and topflight concerts, the highly-reputed Bergen International Festival, held every year in May and June, means that the Bergen region has a natural place on the world’s musical map.


ABOUT BERGEN 11

Bryggen (The Wharf)

BRYGGEN – A WORLD HERITAGE SITE The very first buildings in Bergen were situated at Bryggen, which has been a vibrant and important area of the city for many centuries. Bryggen has been ravaged by many fires, the great fire of 1702 in particular. It reduced the whole of the city to ashes. Bryggen was rebuilt on the foundations that had been there since the 12th century, which means that Bryggen is basically unchanged despite the passing centuries. Bryggen is now part of our common heritage and has a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, and the city of Bergen is a designated World Heritage City. The world heritage site consists of the old Hanseatic wharf and buildings, and one of the best known urban areas from the Middle Ages in all of Norway. In 1360, the German Hanseatic League set up one of its import and export offices at Bryggen, dominating trade for almost 400 years. To stroll through Bryggen’s narrow alleyways and overhanging galleries is to step back into the mists of time and a bygone era. Bryggen is very much a living part of the cultural heritage that is still in active use in this historical area of the city. Today, there are more than 20 attractions in the Bryggen area, from the Fish Market to Bergenhus Fortress. There are many cafés, restaurants and shops to choose from. Many of the shops sell traditional and unique crafts. See also page 38.

Meeting Point Bryggen – Bryggens Museum Meeting Point Bryggen at Bryggens Museum is the place to start if you want to explore all Bryggen’s attractions. This cultural history museum houses finds from the archaeological excavations at Bryggen that lasted from 1955 until 1972. You can learn about Bryggen’s history and see presentations. Ask for the brochure that is your guide to all the attractions at Bryggen. There is also a visitor centre in Bryggestredet in the middle of Bryggen. Bryggen Guiding starts its guided walks through Bryggen’s past at Meeting Point Bryggen. More information about Bryggen Guiding on page 21.

ABOUT BERGEN 13

BERGEN, CONFERENCE CITY Bergen and the surrounding region play host to many large and small events, and the city has become an international meeting place where big events follow one after the other. Understandably enough, because the city is easy to get to from Norway and abroad, has excellent facilities and a broad selection of comfortable hotels with good capacity. Bergen also has the expertise and experience needed to put event organisers at their ease. Bergen city centre is very compact and distances are short. It is not far to attractions in the rest of the region and there are good opportunities for socialising, a fantastic music and revue scene, theatres and festivals, not to mention the magnificent natural surroundings and the opportunities they offer for excursions.

While Bergen’s versatility and its distinctive character make the city attractive, it is probably the city’s unique and infectious atmosphere that is leading more and more people to choose to hold events and conferences in Bergen. The possibilities are many in Bergen. And best of all is the hospitality. We want you to enjoy your stay in Bergen so much that you’ll want to come back.

Hanseatic Days 2016 in Bergen – Past is Future The modern Hanseatic network comprises 180 cities and towns. Each year, one of them hosts the Hanseatic Days, and in 2016, the party is coming to Bergen. THE HANSEATIC AGE IN BERGEN The past tells us who we are and where we are headed, which is summed up in the slogan Past is Future. Over the course of four fantastic days, Bergen will bring its Hanseatic history to life. You will have a chance to taste, see, feel and learn about this exciting period. Bergen was an important part of the Hanseatic League, which dominated the Baltic Sea and the North Sea in the late Middle Ages. Merchants from various towns began to join forces and created an important trading alliance and a unique urban culture. Bergen was a significant part of this urban culture, which you can still experience today. Bryggen, the old Hanseatic wharf in Bergen, is inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, and plays an important role in the history of the Hanseatic League. Follow visitBergen on

You can get a glimpse of what life was like for the Hanseatic Merchants at the Hanseatic Museum and at Schøtstuene assembly halls. The Hanseatic Days 2016 will be a big, exciting event for the whole family. There will be a large market area with culture, food and information from around 90 of the towns and cities in the Hanseatic network, from Germany, the Netherlands, Russia and the Baltic region, among others. There will be music and theatre from Norway and abroad. Artists from many of the Hanseatic towns will participate in a separate programme, HansaArtworks, and there will also be a youth programme – Youth Hansa, a programme for business and industry, in which many of the Hansa towns will be represented (HanseBusiness). In the programme Hanse Chef, local and visiting chefs will compete in a culinary competition based on Hanseatic ingredients. Bergen is a port, and this will naturally be reflected in the programme, which is expected to attract huge crowds to the harbour area. A Market Day and Farmers’ Market will be held simultaneously, featuring local food. There will be music and dancing and the harbour will be full of traditional boats.

Sightseeing Bergen is famous for its unique charm and atmosphere – exploring the city is a must. We hear the same thing every year. Visitors from all over the world have just one complaint when they leave: that their stay didn’t last longer. Bergen’s diversity makes it unique and difficult to categorise. A stroll through its old streets and alleyways, along the old wharf at Bryggen and the Fish Market and a trip up to one of the seven mountains are wonderful experiences in themselves. Several guided tours are available, on foot or by coach, by sightseeing train or by boat. Several of the sightseeing tours include visits to attractions in and outside the city centre. Book your own guide to get more out of the experience. You decide yourself what you want to focus on and what attractions you would like to see. Let one of our authorised guides show you the best the region has to offer. They know the attractions, the history, the anecdotes and the most beautiful sights.

Trolltunga


THE WORLD’S BEST DESTINATION

EXPERIENCES 25

National Geographic Traveler has ranked the Norwegian fjords as the world’s best destination. With its unique location halfway between the Sognefjord and the Hardangerfjord, Bergen is the best starting point for exploring the fjords. It is no accident that the fjords in our region have been inscribed on UNESCO’s famous World Heritage List.

Gateway to the Fjords The fjords are the biggest attraction in Scandinavia. Bergen is the gateway to the fjords and the best starting point for exploring a region visitors come from all over the world to see. Bergen is in a unique situation halfway between the two biggest fjords in Western Norway – the Sognefjord and the Hardangerfjord and it also has a fantastic coastline with thousands of large and small islands. Bergen has a vibrant cultural scene as well as being the ideal place for those looking for active experiences. The island archipelago is an open invitation to the fjords that cut through the landscape, creating majestic and richly contrasting scenery. Here, waterfalls cascade down mountainsides to which small farms cling perilously, and the tallest mountaintops have a permanent covering of snow.

Nature is not just a visual experience. Many active outdoor pursuits are available for those looking to explore this landscape at close hand. Cycling alongside the fjord or beside the Flåm Railway, kayaking on narrow fjord arms, a mountain walk to Trolltunga rock and skiing on glaciers are just a few of the possibilities available to you if you want to experience really close up. All of this is within easy reach. With Bergen as your base, you can get to even the innermost reaches of the fjords and back again in one day. You can take day trips and round trips from Bergen, to the Sognefjord, for example – Norway’s longest and deepest fjord, which also includes the Nærøyfjord, featured on the World Heritage List. Or to the Hardangerfjord, also known as the Queen of the Norwegian fjords. We strongly recommend a round trip along the coast to explore the coastal culture. Tickets can be purchased at the Tourist Information, among other places, or from visitBergen.com.

It is no accident that the fjords in our region have been inscribed on UNESCO’s famous World Heritage List. With its unique location halfway between the Sognefjord and the Hardangerfjord, Bergen is the best starting point for nature experiences. Small, picturesque villages line the fjords, and out by the ocean small fishing villages seem to cling precariously to the rocky shore. From gentle and mild to rough and wild – this is a land of contrasts. And all of it is authentic and natural, and easy to get to from Bergen.

Fjord cruise Bergen-Mostraumen Experience the fjords, mountains and waterfalls – all year round! On this fjord cruise to Mostraumen you will experience narrow fjords and steep mountains. We sail past several waterfalls, and if you are lucky, we will try to collect a sample of the fresh mountain water for you to taste! On the return, we sail around Osterøy. We make a stop by a waterfall called Heskjedalsfossen, which is a beautiful twin waterfall and a popular spot to take pictures. There is an abundance of wildlife in the area, and we can often see seals, goats and eagles! This fjord cruise takes 3.5 hours. In the low season (October-April) the 10:00 a.m. departure will have a duration of 3 hours. The tour goes directly to Mostraumen and back to Bergen, and does not include the tour around Osterøy. Our boat is a modern catamaran with a big sun deck. There is disabled access on the boat, and you can bring a stroller. A kiosk on board sells beverages, snacks and small dishes.

Culture and experiences A World Heritage City and European City of Culture. A city buzzing with life – all year round! Bergen was European City of Culture in 2000. Today, the Bergen region has a unique breadth of culture and experiences to offer. Every day, it is possible to choose between revues and theatre, dance performances, shows and international concerts featuring top-class international performers. Search our events calendar at www.visitBergen.com to find an event to suit your interests.

Bergen, City of Wooden Houses, has a distinctive charm that is ideal for exploring on foot – a great way to meet the locals on their home ground. And the city has more to offer. Take a trip up to one of Bergen’s seven mountains, which have great walking trails and fantastic views of the city, the surrounding mountains, the fjords and the ocean beyond. Walks in the city mountains vary from easy to more demanding. Ask for a map at the Tourist Information. The Fish Market is right in the heart of the city, and the Hanseatic wharf at Bryggen with its old wooden buildings is also very central.

The Bergen region has more than 60 highly varied attractions. There are great opportunities for young people, adults, children and families who want to explore local traditions and history.

Join one of our guided tours, by bus, on foot or by boat. To tempt you to prolong your stay and improve your experience of the city, we highly recommend the Bergen Card for culture and experiences.

Bergen’s Art Street has collections featuring unique treasures from Norway and abroad, both past and present.

If you are coming as a family with children, we have gathered all the relevant attractions, including the Aquarium, the Funicular, Vannkanten Waterworld and VilVite Science Centre on the website www.BarnasBergen.no

Bergen, Music City – always a concert to suit your taste. The Edvard Grieg Museum at Troldhaugen, the home of this worldfamous composer, is a well-known venue for visitors from far and wide. The city also has a number of concert venues, ranging from small clubs to outdoor arenas and the region’s flagship concert hall, the Grieg Hall, home to Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra. The orchestra celebrated its 250th anniversary in 2015, and in the autumn British conductor Ed Gardner took over as the orchestra’s chief conductor.

Museums – Bryggen (the Wharf)

Bryggen – a world heritage site The very first buildings in Bergen were built alongside the wharf called Bryggen, which has been a lively and important area of the city for many centuries. Bryggen has been ravaged by many fires, the great fire of 1702 in particular. It reduced the whole of the city to ashes.

Bryggen was rebuilt on the foundations that had been there since the 11th century, which means that Bryggen is basically unchanged despite the changing times. Bryggen is part of our common cultural heritage and is inscribed in UNESCO’s World Heritage List. To stroll through Bryggen’s narrow alleyways and overhanging galleries is to step back into the mists of time and a bygone era. Bryggen is very much a living part of the cultural heritage that is still in active use in this historical area of the city. Today, there are more than 20 attractions in the Bryggen area, from the Fish Market to Bergenhus Fortress. There are many cafés, restaurants and shops to choose from. Many of the shops sell traditional and unique crafts.

WOODEN HOUSES – BERGEN, THE BIG CITY WITH SMALL-TOWN CHARM Bergen’s small wooden houses add to the city’s charm and uniqueness. Many of these old wooden buildings date back to the 18th and 19th centuries and have been respectfully restored and refurbished in recent years. Fine examples of this can be seen in central areas such as Nordnes, Nøstet and Fjellsiden, where narrow alleyways and cobbled streets dominate. People have lived in these areas for centuries, and they are well worth exploring for their charm.

Ulriken643


EXPERIENCES 71

View from mont Ulriken

Sport and leisure – active experiences The fact that Bergen is located in one of the world’s most scenic areas means that there are lots of opportunities for active experiences for adults and children alike.

You can hire kayaks at Bruvoll Camping for trips through Norway’s most fantastic island archipelago, just a short distance from Bergen, or try diving in the Gulen area.

Nature is close at hand no matter where in the Bergen region you are. And if you prefer the indoor life, there is plenty to do indoors as well.

There are plenty of opportunities for a round of golf. There are both nine and eighteenhole courses, all in fantastic settings surrounded by woodland, lakes and mountains.

The city’s seven mountains are the local people’s most popular recreation area. If you take the Fløibanen funicular or the Ulriken cable car up to the mountains, you can walk for hours on marked trails while enjoying panoramic views of the city. Out near the coast, you can choose between many alternative walks on the North Sea Trail. If you prefer city walks, we suggest you join one of the many fascinating guided walking tours.

If you come in your own boat, you can choose to moor off one of the thousands of small islands in the region or head for one of the many secure guest marinas. Make sure you get a copy of our boating guide that describes the opportunities on offer. To hire a boat, kayak or canoe, see the list on pages 72-73, 113.

If you bring your own equipment, there are many possibilities in the region – cycling, scuba diving, fishing, boating and kayaking. If you wish to experience things together with others, we recommend whitewater rafting at Voss, the Norway Active round trip featuring cycling, kayaking and rafting, or a fishing trip on the TSMY Weller from the city centre. With Bergen Base Camp you can go abseiling, or on a GPS-guided walk in the town or in the mountains or try paragliding from the summit of Mt. Ulriken.

For families, see our website: www.BarnasBergen.no. If you want to swim indoors, a trip to the Vannkanten (Waterworld) complex is recommended. There are also great opportunities for tenpin bowling, squash and deep-sea fishing trips in the Bergen region. Call in at the Tourist Information for information about what’s on offer and to buy trips and tours.

With your own boat it is easy to get to most of the sights and attractions the region has to offer. There are plenty of guest marinas with good facilities. The guest marina in Vågen in the heart of Bergen has all the facilities you need. Call in at the Tourist Information and pick up the boating guide for Hordaland.

ACCOMMODATION 75

Accommodation Bergen has a varied selection of accommodation to choose from, often combined in a package deal with tickets for cultural events. There is far too much to see and do in the whole Bergen region for just one day. Fortunately, we can offer a varied range of accommodation that suits all tastes and wallets. Choose a hotel with a view of the Vågen harbour area or a hotel surrounded by old wooden Bergen houses. The city has everything from the finest modern hotels to simple B&B accommodation, often in private homes. If you choose to stay in the city centre, you will have the city’s main attractions, its history and nightlife within easy reach. Hotels and guest houses outside the city centre all have good public transport services to the centre and parking if you come by car. The facilities and capacity are good. If you choose to stay in southern Bergen or in nearby Os, the airport and attractions such as the Edvard Grieg Museum, Troldhaugen and Fantoft Stave Church are not far away. Not to mention all the bargains

to be found at the big Lagunen shopping centre. If you choose to stay north of Bergen in Nordhordland, on one the islands west of Bergen or beside one of the nearby fjords, you will have fantastic coastal and fjord scenery near at hand all year round. No matter why you are visiting – a family holiday, a trip with friends to take in a show, the theatre, shopping and a good meal, a business trip to meet business connections, a night on the town with friends or to take part in one of the many conferences held here – the Bergen region always has something special to offer. BOOK ONLINE Most hotels and guest houses in the Bergen region can be booked online at www.visitBergen.com. The website contains good information and map references, you can book quickly and securely. BOOK AT THE TOURIST INFORMATION If you haven’t booked a room, the Tourist Information always has an overview of what hotel and other accommodation is available. We are more than happy to book for you.

BRYGGEN – MORE THAN JUST AN ATTRACTION

SHOPPING 93

Bryggen was well known as a trading centre as early as the Middle Ages. Now, many centuries later, trade still has place of honour. Bryggen’s wooden buildings house a broad range of artists and craft makers who produce clothes, jewellery, ceramics and visual art in their workshops and studios with sales outlets.

The Shopping City Trade and shopping have always been very important to Bergen. As a visitor, this means that you will find plenty of tempting shopping – from small and specialised shops to large department stores. Bergen has several exciting shopping streets: Strandgaten, the pedestrianised ’Gågaten’, Torgallmenningen, Marken, Hollendergaten, Øvregaten, Bryggen and Skostredet, to mention a few. There is also a good selection of small specialised shops throughout the city centre. The Fish Market has most kinds of fish and seafood as well as fruit, vegetables and flowers. The biggest and best shopping centres in the city centre are Kløverhuset in Strandgaten, Galleriet on Torgallmenningen square and Bergen Storsenter near the bus and railway station.

If you live outside Scandinavia, you can buy goods tax free in most shops and have the VAT refunded when departing from Norway. Look for the Tax Free sign in shops and ask for a tax-free cheque.

Out towards the airport, you will find Lagunen Storsenter, one of the biggest shopping centres in the whole of Norway. The shopping centres are open from 9.00 to 21.00 Monday to Friday and until 18.00 on Saturdays. Smaller shops are mostly open from 10.00 to 16.00, some until 17.00, and until 15.00 or 16.00 on Saturdays. If you live outside Scandinavia, you can buy goods tax free in most shops and have the VAT refunded when departing from Norway. In the Bergen region, you can buy woollen and silk goods of the finest quality from well-known local textile manufacturers and brands such as Dale of Norway, Janus and Oleana.

BERGEN 101

Restaurants and nightlife A good meal is the icing on the cake of your visit to Bergen, and a taste of the city’s nightlife should have you bursting with new energy. In Bergen you will find just about everything - from coffee bars to fish restaurants and delicious international cuisine, to small arty cafés, discothèques, bars and nightclubs. Ask a local where you should go and you will likely be directed to one of the city’s ‘classic’ eateries that have been attracting customers for decades. Bergen has some of the country’s most beautiful restaurants and some of its best cuisine, too. All you have to do is choose according to your taste, appetite – and what you can afford. The region’s majestic countryside produces the very best ingredients, and the fish in the sea are the basis for culinary experiences that are the envy of chefs worldwide. If you visit places with the ‘En smak av Kysten’ (Taste of the Coast) label, you are guaranteed the best seafood to be had. You can enjoy fantastic fresh fruit grown in orchards and on lush slopes beside our deep fjords.

Many restaurants take special pride in ensuring that the ingredients preserve their natural taste and emphasise their distinctive character. The people of Western Norway have long been able to enjoy first-class ingredients and we are proud to be able to serve the most deliciously tempting local food and drink the region has to offer. Some of the most seductive delicacies the region has to offer require no preparation – big sweet strawberries straight from the field, dark-red morello cherries, juicy plums and tasty Hardanger apples. You can enjoy fresh fjord prawns down by the harbour while peacefully watching the comings and goings of the boats. Bergen’s nightlife has enough variety to ensure an enjoyable evening out. If you want somewhere quiet, there are many excellent coffee bars with a relaxing atmosphere. Or take in a revue or an interesting concert. And it’s never very far to one of the city’s many nightclubs. Take a look at what Bergen has to offer at www.visitBergen.com/restauranter

Situated between the world’s longest fjord and one of the most beautiful fjords in the world, the Sognefjord and the Hardangerfjord, Bergen and the surrounding region is the best starting point for scenic experiences. The Bergen region has a fantastic coastline with thousands of islands and a buzzing cultural scene. There are many possibilities for people looking for active experiences. The island archipelago and the majestic fjords make for highly varied scenery. Waterfalls cascade down the mountainsides, snow glitters on the mountain tops and lush green pastures line the fjords.

Take part in nature-based activities such as walking, sailing, cycling, kayaking, rafting, fishing, paragliding and summer skiing, to name but a few. There are activities for ‘extreme’ enthusiasts and for friends looking for shared experiences in the great outdoors. Distances are short and you can fit a lot in even if you only have a few days. It’s easy to get here no matter where you come from – by boat, train, bus or car. The Norway in a nutshell® round trip shows you our fjords and mountains in a day trip and is available all year.

The region/ Coast Adventure is like an ‘amusement park’ full of unique outdoor experiences. Take a trip out to sea, which simply abounds in fish or go diving and discover a new world of fantastic colours, fish, cliffs, shipwrecks and beautiful underwater flora. Go on a sea eagle safari or experience the full force of the sea on a high-speed boat. And if you’re lucky enough to catch a fish, you’ll remember it for the rest of your life. Out here, holidays are full of exciting stories and authentic experiences.

The region has several museums for those who are interested in history. The huge underground military base at Fjell was built by the German occupation forces from 1942 to 1943, and at Herdla museum, you can see an exhibition about the German air base there. Herdla is also famous for its unique birdlife and is perfect for walks and bird-watching.

It is easy to find things to do in Nordhordland. Many come looking for activities and adventure, and the region is perfect for both action-packed and relaxing pastimes. The short distance from the sea to the mountains is one of the unique features of Nordhordland. You can try sea sports activities in this coastal eldorado throughout the year, and you can have as much action-packed fun as you want, organised by experienced sea sports enthusiasts who put safety first. The international Nordic Oceansport Week (Havsportveka) is a highlight that is held in August every year. Out at the ocean’s edge, lies the small island of Fedje. A visit to Fedje is a unique experience whatever the weather. Try a lighthouse safari to Hellisøy Lighthouse, a walk on the North Sea Trail in a bracing wind or delicious fish soup in the café. Discover Nordhordland’s coastal cultural landscape at the Heathland Centre. In addition to walks through this unique and beautiful landscape, the centre has exhibitions, a film and a café serving local delicacies. Golfers can play a challenging round at Meland Golf, a stunning 18-hole course. Tjorehagen on Radøy is one of the biggest and best rhododendron gardens in Norway. The Knarvikmila organised run is held every year, with thousands of participants. Admiring the open landscape and enjoying the peace and quiet are also part of the Nordhordland experience. There are walks of varying degrees of difficulty throughout Nordhordland. Berg Fritid aims to make it more fun, easier and safer to be a tourist in Stordalen all year round. It offers a comprehensive programme of activities for groups of all kinds. Stordalen, Modalen and Dyrkolbotn are all excellent starting points for short and long walks in the Stølsheimen mountains.
