Bergen’s top attractions
The popular attraction, also known as Tyskebryggen and Hansabryggen, includes the old wooden buildings in the historic town centre. The area dates back to 1070, and from 1360 to 1754, it was the location of the German “office” of the Hanseatic League in Norway. You’ll be treading in very historic footsteps here! Today, Bryggen consists of 13 properties of protected buildings and is on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
Along with Bryggen, Fløibanen funicular is a must-see for any visitor to Bergen. The 800-metre long funicular will take you all the way up to the observation point at Fløien station (320 metres above sea level). Here you’ll be met by a quite spectacular view. The funicular, which first opened in 1918, is Bergen’s most popular tourist attraction with 1.5 million passengers per year. At the top you’ll find a kiosk, souvenir shop and a restaurant connected to Fløien station.
The famous Fisketorget (fish market) is one of Norway’s largest and most exciting outdoor markets. Here you will find fresh seafood and plenty of locally-produced fruit and vegetables. Why not pick up your dinner while you visit? The market square has been an important trading location in Bergen since the 13th century, and Fisketorget is active all year round. It’s definitely worth stopping by!
At Bergen Aquarium, you can wander around 60 large aquariums filled with underwater environments, including salt water, fresh water, tropical salt water and tropical fresh water. The aquarium has more than 300 different species in its collection and aims to provide animals and fish with the most natural living conditions possible. It also boasts four outdoor pools which are home to penguins, sea lions and seals. The aquarium also has a tropical section where the more daring visitors will find snakes, crocodiles and spiders.
Culture lovers will fall for Bergen’s large selection of galleries and museums. We especially recommend beautiful Troldhaugen, which was the home of the world-famous Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg and his wife Nina. The couple lived here from 1885 until Grieg’s death in 1907. The house itself is a typical 19th century wooden villa with an impressive tower offering panoramic views. Close to Troldhaugen lies Siljustøl museum, part of the former home of composer Harald Sæverud (1887-1992).
