A 1.3 km nice walk from the Blue Stone (Den blå steinen) in Bergen’s central square Torgallmenningen, through Vestre Torggate, up the new stairs with fountains and running water, to St. John’s Church on the top of the stairs. Further you pass Museum of Natural History and the Museum Garden at your right side. If you turn left up Parkveien, you can walk through Nygårdsparken Park to Vilvite Science centre. Now, however, we walk straight ahead along the museum tram rails, which take us directly to the Technical Museum.
