Welcome to Bergen! No wonder why our old and beautiful town attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists every year. Bergen is beautiful, picturesque, friendly and fresh! So, some of Bergen’s main attractions happen to be really crowded during summer.
Why not try an alternative route through town? For cruise tourists and locals alike—there are lots of things to do in Bergen, Norway, during a day or a week. Especially so, if you are able to use your own feet for an unguided walk, you can easily reach some of the town’s hidden no-touristy treasures. Or, with a little extra effort, the Bergen mountains Ulriken, Fløyen and more, are within close reach, waiting for you to hike them.
Here you can find ideas, maps and videos for tourists in Bergen!
