Visit Bergen

Bergen Guide 2020

Chapter 1. Welcome

The people who live here love their city – and they love visitors. Everyone is welcome! Our slogan is that a good city to live in is a good city to visit.

That is why we encourage everyone who visits Bergen and the nearby areas to help us take care of the city. We hope that our visitors will take care of the natural environment, world heritage and local environment during their visit. Here are seven guidelines we hope you will follow to take care of the city between the seven mountains: 1 Show consideration for others Show consideration for both the locals and other visitors. Show consideration for the people working in shops, museums, restaurants and attractions. Bus stops, light rail stops and the railway station are no-smoking areas. If you visit mountains or fjords, remember that nature’s silence is part of the experience. It is customary to greet the people we meet along the walking paths in Norway. 2 Use the waste bins and public toilets Please do not leave behind empty containers and waste – use public waste bins. Familiarise yourself with the location of public toilets and use these. We do not appreciate guests relieving themselves in the city parks.

3 Respect private property Remember that the beautiful houses you see in Bergen are the homes of the people who live here, and therefore private property. Please show consideration for those living and working in the city, and respect their right to a private life. Remember that the World Heritage Site Bryggen is private property that is listed, and you must be extra mindful in order to preserve the site. 4 Have respect for the forces of nature Nature is beautiful, but unpredictable. The weather can change quickly. Remember that your mobile telephone might not have a signal in certain natural surroundings, even those that are close to the city. Always take the marked paths. If you are not used to walking in untamed nature, we recommend a local guide. Ask the Tourist Information for advice. Always check the weather forecast in advance if you plan to enjoy the great outdoors www.yr.no. Always remember to bring extra clothes and additional food and drink, even on short walks. Remember sturdy footwear.

Chapter 1. Welcome

Show us that you also care by following these seven points

5 Do not leave any traces in nature You will not find waste bins or toilets in natural areas. Remember to go to the toilet before setting off on a hike. Do not leave waste behind – please take your waste back home with you. If there are no facilities where you are, please take used toilet paper with you in a bag, and do not leave it behind in nature. Use existing campsites and make sure there is no risk of fire in the area. Lighting a fire is prohibited between 15 April and 15 September. 6 Respect the wildlife Show consideration for the wildlife, particularly in spring when new life abounds the animal kingdom. Always keep your distance when encountering wild animals. Remember that it is illegal to remove eggs from nests. Always walk your dog on a lead. This is mandatory yearround in Bergen and in the city mountains.

Taking pictures of children in schools and kindergartens is not allowed, unless you have a special agreement to do so. Please note: Special rules apply to the use of drones, which you must familiarise yourself with. You can read about them on The Civil Aviation Authority of Norway’s website. We care about our city! Show us that you also care by following these seven points. Enjoy Bergen and its surroundings and welcome back!

Kind regards Visit Bergen Anders Nyland Director of Tourism

7 Photography and drones You can take pictures almost anywhere in Bergen. Some places – mainly in art galleries and museums – may have signs indicating that taking pictures is not allowed. Always remember to ask people whether you may take a picture of them. 13

Chapter 2. Experiences

The people of Bergen are proud of their city and its traditions. The city offers a wide range of attractions, museums and sightseeing options. There are more than 60 different attrac­ tions, museums and galleries in Bergen. Among others, you can visit the Hanseatic wharf Bryggen, Bergen Aquarium, the Fløibanen funicular and the Fish Market. Bergen is also a great city for children, with lots of exciting and educational activities. The Fish Market has delicacies to tempt everyone, and you can spend hours among fish, penguins, sea lions and seals at Bergen Aquarium. The whole family can explore the world of science and technology at the VilVite Science Centre. If you take the Fløibanen funicular to the top of Mount Fløyen, you can have fun at the playground, play in the Trollskogen forest, walk on exciting nature trails or paddle a canoe on Skomakerdiket lake. You can ‘float’ to the top of Bergen’s highest mountain in the Ulriken 643 cable car. From the top, you can enjoy magnificent views of Bergen and the surrounding area – the sea, the islands, fjords and mountains. Bergen is also perfect for walks as the city centre is very compact, but rich in history and culture at the same time. If you arrive in Bergen as part of a group or would like your own guide, you can book a guide from one of our guide companies, who can show you or your group around Bryggen, the city centre or wherever you wish.

The Edvard Grieg Museum at Troldhaugen is a popular museum for visitors from far and wide. You can visit Grieg’s home, his composer’s cabin and his burial site. Daily lunch concerts are also held in the Troldsalen concert hall during summer. There are a number of museums at Bryggen, including Bryggens Museum, the Hanseatic Museum & Schøtstuene, Håkon’s Hall, the Rosenkrantz Tower, St Mary’s Church and the Theta Museum. Enjoy a historical stroll through KODE’s extensive collection of art and design located in four buildings in Bergen city centre. The open-air Old Bergen Museum is a reconstructed town of around 50 wooden houses and buildings dating from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. The Museum of Natural History at the University Museum of Bergen has also finally reopened following six years of renovation. The museum has, among other things, sixteen new exhibitions. Many other museums are also found in and around Bergen. Remember that the Bergen Card gives you free or discounted admission to most museums and attractions in Bergen and the region! 25

Bergen Guide 2020

Chapter 3. Culture

Bergen is a European City of Culture, which has been known for its rich and varied cultural scene all the way back to the Hanseatic era.

Bergen was a European City of Culture already in 2000 and is home today to a unique range of experiences and cultural activities. Every day, it is possible to choose between revues and theatre, dance performances, shows and international concerts featuring top-class international performers. The Bergen region also 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. Bergen’s Art Street has collections featuring unique treasures from Norway and abroad, both past and present. The collections are housed in a row of galleries lining the picturesque Lille Lungegårdsvann lake in the heart of the city. Permanent and changing exhibitions throughout the year. KODE houses large collections by Munch, Tidemand and Gude, Picasso, Miró and Astrup, as well as contemporary art and KunstLab, a dedicated art museum for children and young people. Bergen Kunsthall is also situated here, where you can see contemporary art, performance art etc.

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. With more than 60 festivals and big concerts, Bergen has cemented its position in the music world. Many people choose to visit Bergen during Bergen International Festival in May/June, when, in addition to the fantastic international festival, they get to see the city looking its best in spring. Nattjazz, one of Norway’s biggest jazz festivals, is held in parallel with Bergen International Festival, and is based at USF Verftet. Every summer, the historic area Koengen at Bergenhus Fortress is transformed into a unique festival area when big Norwegian and international names play at the Bergenfest music festival. Bergen is an action-packed city, and you’ll definitely never be bored. There’ll always be something on that’s to your taste. 55

From yarn to high fashion 56


Visit Bergen

Bergen Guide 2020

Chapter 4. Shopping

You won’t return home empty-handed after a day’s shopping in Bergen. Our city has a range of shops few other Norwegian cities can match

In the compact city centre, you’ll find everything from fashionable design shops and large shopping centres, to small specialist shops with goods you won’t find anywhere else in the world. Jump off the bus at Olav Kyrres Gate, Festplassen or Torget, and you will find yourself in the heart of Bergen’s main shopping area. Home to large, fashionable shopping centres such as Galleriet and Bergen Storsenter, which boast a wide range of shops, and abundant shopping opportunities. In addition to the shopping centres in the centre of Bergen, there are also a number of large shopping centres outside the city centre that are worth a visit. Most of them are easy to get to by bus or Bergen Light Rail.

an experience. Visit shops you’ve never heard of and find clothes you know none of your friends will have. There are many well-known design and souvenir shops along historic Bryggen that sell beautiful examples of Norwegian craftsmanship, gifts and delightful small items you will enjoy for years to come. In the area around Vågen harbour, you can buy fantastic clothes made by well-known local clothes manufacturers. Take your time and have a good look around to ensure you make the most of shopping in Bergen. Although the shops are spread across the city streets, the compact city centre means they are all within easy distance.

Or do you prefer a bit of fresh air between shops on your shopping excursion? In that case, you should head for the shops in the city centre streets. Instead of the big, well-known chains, you will find unique niche shops along the narrow, cobbled pedestrian streets and alleyways of the city centre, which sell goods you won’t find anywhere else. Wander along Strandgaten, Marken, Hollendergaten, Øvregaten or Bryggen, and make shopping in Bergen 57

The wool thrill at the knitting mill Ever since 1895, Janus has produced warm and durable wool garments, and is a cherished brand among Norwegians. Janus offers woollen clothes for the whole family, and the collections range from the softest underwear to stylish and durable 3rd. layer garments. All products are made of soft, warm and itch free merino wool. The Janus factory is located in Espeland, just outside the city centre.

A visit to the facilities will give you a glimpse into the long and proud history of the Norwegian textile industry. Of the many prosperous textile producers in Western Norway during the 1900’s, Janus is today the last one left in its field, and is now the largest manufacturer of wool garments in Europe. Janus is an important cornerstone in the local community. Today, 70 % of the production is sold in the domestic market,

the rest is exported to Europe, USA and Asia. At the factory facilities, you can experience the renovated Directors Villa from 1894, the old Espeland train station and the Janus Culture Centre and Factory Store, where all the products produced on site are for sale. The Culture Centre and Store is located in the original knitting mill from 1895. It is a beautiful, wooden building on the banks of the river that originally supplied

the power for the knitting machines. www.janus.no Address: Stephansens veg 35, 5267 Espeland Opening hours: Monday-Wednesday: 09-17 Thursday: 09-18 Friday: 09-17 Saturday: 10-14

Bergen Guide 2020

Chapter 7. Fjord tours

Bergen is surrounded by one of the world’s most spectacular attractions, the Norwegian fjords.

The fjords are inscribed on UNESCO’s famous World Heritage List, and have been called the best unspoiled travel destination in the world by National Geographic. The fjords are the biggest attraction in Scandinavia, and draw visitors from far and wide. Bergen and the surrounding region are situated in the heart of the worldfamous fjords, making it the best starting point for exploring the fjords. You can use Bergen as a base for fjord tours all year, but a greater range of tours is available during summer. You can take day trips and round trips from Bergen to, for example, the Sognefjord – Norway’s longest and deepest fjord, which includes the Nærøyfjord, which is inscribed on the World Heritage List, or to the Hardangerfjord, also known as the Queen of the Norwegian fjords. Bergen also has a fantastic coastline with thousands of large and small islands and a buzzing cultural scene, which makes it ideal for active outdoor pursuits.

small farms cling perilously, and the tallest mountaintops have a permanent covering of snow. Some fjord tours combine travel by boat, train and bus. They all start and end in Bergen, and last from a half-day to a day. Some of them can be extended to include one or more overnight stays en route. This is a land of contrasts. From gentle and mild to rough and wild. Picturesque small communities are dotted along the coast like green oases, and out by the ocean small fishing villages seem to cling precariously to the rocky shore. Nature is not just something for weary city dwellers to admire from a distance, however. You can ski all year – even in summer – go rafting and hike in the mountains and on glaciers, cycle the navvies’ road and fish in the sea and rivers.

Chapter 8. Vestland

The fjords are the biggest attraction in Scandinavia, and draw visitors from far and wide. Bergen and the surrounding region are situated in the heart of the world-famous fjords. The fjords are the biggest attraction in Scandinavia, and draw visitors from far and wide. Bergen and the surrounding region are situated in the heart of the worldfamous fjords. It’s no accident that this region is included on UNESCO’s famous World Heritage List. Situated as they are between one of the world’s longest fjords and one of the world’s most beautiful fjords, the Sognefjord and the Hardangerfjord, Bergen and Vestland county are the best starting point for nature experiences. The Bergen region has a fantastic coastline with thousands of large and small islands, a rich cultural scene and lots of opportunities for active pursuits. 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 the mountainsides, while perpetual snow glistens on the summits and lush green pastures brighten up the fjord landscape.

Nature is not just something for weary city dwellers to admire from a distance, however. Combine the fantastic scenery with a great range of active, invigorating and exciting experiences. Explore some of the thousands of islands along the coast. Witness the drama of deep fjords with their still waters that reflect beautiful mountains and glaciers. Take pleasure in the grassy hills and indulge in the tempting local fare. Play an active part in nature activities such as walking, sailing, cycling, kayaking, rafting, fishing, paragliding and summer skiing – to name but a few. From active types seeking the ‘extreme’ to friends in search of shared experiences in natural surroundings. You’ll find it all here. You don’t need to travel far and you can do a lot even if you only have a couple of days at your disposal. It’s easy to get here wherever you’re travelling from, be it by boat, train, bus or car.

Small green communities are dotted along the fjords and traditional fishing villages are still found out by the ocean. This is a land of contrasts. From gentle and mild to rough and wild. But all of them authentic and natural. 97

The coast west of Bergen is ideal for active, invigorating and exciting experiences

Just a stone’s throw from the city, you can take part in spectacular coastal activities and incredible culinary seafood experiences.

When the ice retreated around 10,000 years ago, it left thousands of islands like pearls on a string. When the winter storms lash the coast, you feel humbled by the forces of nature. Marstein lighthouse stands in the ocean like a dependable guide for those taking the sea route to Bergen. You can spend the night in the lighthouse and watch the sky explode into colour as the sun disappears over the horizon. In the kingdom of the sea eagle There is rich bird life in the coastal landscape, and there are more than 236 species of birds to spot. The sea eagle, one of the biggest birds of prey in the world, is the undisputed king. You are now in the kingdom of the sea eagle. The nature reserves at Tjeldstømarka in Øygarden and Herdla on Askøy are perfect for bird

watching. Experience nature up close on a walk on the North Sea Trail and coastal paths in Øygarden. There is a great chance that you will catch a glimpse of the sea eagle as it dives into the sea to catch its dinner. With the sea as your playground The region west of Bergen offers a multitude of activities that make the most of the fascinating coastal landscape. Experience what it’s like to catch a whopper in the great fishing grounds off Sotra and Øygarden, which are perfect for deepsea fishing. You can become one with the archipelago and the water in a sea kayak. Get a sense of the forces of nature and a rush as you ride the waves. Seek shelter for the night, enjoy the long, light evenings and the panoramic view of the starry skies.

Cornelius Sjømatrestaurant.

Cornelius Sjømatrestaurant is one of Norway’s best restaurants, where you are served the freshest ingredients straight from the sea with a unique meteorological menu adapted to the weather and available ingredients. There are daily boat departures to Cornelius from Bryggen in Bergen, and the trip takes 20 minutes. Enough time to whet your appetite ahead of your delicious meal. Wild sheep graze on the islands along the ocean’s edge. The coast has shaped both the land and people’s lives for thousands of years along this exposed coast. Heather, sea salt and fresh sea air give Strilalammet lamb its delicious flavour, and this product is fast becoming a sought after-ingredient along the Bergen coast. However, great culinary experiences are not made of great ingredients alone. Enjoying a meal in the right environment enhances the experience. On fine days, the sliding doors are opened and light dishes are served on tables set on the quay. On rough days, we light candles in the lounges, light the fire and serve food with stronger flavours.

The seafood tastes best right from the sea.

The sea route has been the main thoroughfare in Nordhordland all the way back to the Viking Age

In Nordhordland, between Bergen and the Sognefjord, you will find beautiful fjords, untouched nature and narrow straits with strong currents.

Animals and people have created a beautiful landscape of colourful heathlands and charming drystone walls as protection against the elements. Nordhordland north of Bergen is a gem for nature experiences, exciting emigration history and activities that are guaranteed to bring a glow to your cheeks, the wind in your hair and laughter and joy. Fjord just outside Bergen The sea route is the most beautiful way to reach Nordhordland. Every day, all year, you can take a sightseeing boat up the beautiful fjord landscape of Nordhordland. The nature experiences start as soon as you board the boat, as you pass Nordhordland Bridge, Alverstraumen and the island of Osterøy. Innermost in the Osterfjord, the boat takes you up the narrow Mostraumen strait with its strong currents to Modalen. This trip is a perfect

fjord experience, with sheer mountains and waterfalls, idyllic farms and small villages, fauna and fresh sea air. The lifesaver that shaped the land and people Traces of the first people who settled along the coast can be found at, among other places, Fosenstraumen and at Skipshelleren. People started farming sheep around 4,500 years ago. Sheep are superbly adapted to the harsh climate, with their ’raincoat’ over a warm layer of wool. Ullruta – the wool route tells the story of how sheep became a lifesaver for people living along the coast. At the Heathland Centre at Lygra, you can learn about how farmers cultivated the heathlands as grazing for their animals. Osterøy Museum tells the story of how the Vikings invented the first raincoat, the 103

The well-known brands, Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk, Dale of Norway, Oleana and Norlender, which still use wool in their first-class, Norwegian design products, are based in Nordhordland. Walks in the beautiful Stølsheimen mountains in Masfjorden, between the Sognefjord and the Vossefjellene mountains, offer great natural and historical experiences. In Matre, you will find the Bjorn West Museum where you can learn more about the dramatic fighting that took place in the Stølsheimen mountains towards the end of World War II.

Chapter 9. Transport

To see the best of Bergen, it’s important to get around. Travel efficiently from A to B to get the most out of your stay.

The pride of Bergen’s public transport, Bergen Light Rail, is a light rail service that operates between Byparken in Bergen city centre and Bergen Airport Flesland. Since Bergen Light Rail largely runs separate from other traffic, and has right of way at traffic lights, it is a more efficient form of transport than ordinary city trams. The many stops in central areas make Bergen Light Rail a popular means of transport for locals, tourists and visitors. There are good bus connections at many of the stops, such as Byparken and Lagunen, for those who wish to travel further by public transport. Buses are perhaps the most flexible means of travelling on public transport in and around Bergen. The well-developed scheduled bus services bring you close to your destination, and Tide Buss operates extensive services in Bergen city centre, on Osterøy, Bergen North, Bergen South, Os, Hardanger, Voss and Austevoll. The main lines cover large areas of the Bergen Region, and the express buses transport passengers quickly to the bus terminals in the different districts. Tickets can be bought on board the buses, in kiosks or on an online/mobile phone app.

The Bergen Card enables you to travel free of charge on Skyss’s bus and Bergen Light Rail services in Bergen and Hordaland. As well as saving money and transporting you efficiently to destinations in the region, it can also provide a golden opportunity to see the areas around Bergen. With the Bergen Card in your pocket, you are free to go where you want, when you want. For free. You can, for example, take Bergen Light Rail to Troldhaugen and Fantoft Stave Church, or a bus to Old Bergen Museum, Lysøen, Voss, the Hardangerfjord or the Aurlandsfjord. If you plan to walk to Trolltunga, you can travel free of charge from Bergen to Odda with the Bergen Card. It also entitles you to a discount on the airport bus, or you can take the Bergen Light Rail from the city centre to Flesland free of charge. If you want to make your own way around, the Bergen Card entitles you to a discount on parking at Bygarasjen multi-storey car park in the city centre.
