Go to Nordnesparken for a stroll, a bath in the sun or the seawater, or some fishing. Nordnesparken Park covers the tip of the Nordnes peninsula, around the Bergen Aquarium. Within the park you find the public Nordnes Seawater bath (Nordnes Sjøbad).
The park is a great spot for relaxing, and for activities like watching the ships in the harbour on their way to and fro, or for fishing from the shore.
Among the many great things to do in Bergen during a day, a visit to Nordnes gives you access to sunbathing, bathing, fishing, walking the narrow streets of the nabourhood and of course spending some hours with the fish and seacreatures in the Aquarium. And when you are tired from all the activities and fresh air, you might stroll down to Verftet, to have a drink on the edge of the fjord, watching the sun set close to midnight in early summer.
