The walk from the Bergen railway station to the town centre in central square Torgallmenningen will just take you some 5 to 10 minutes. A pleasant walk!
Your train arrives in Bergen through the 7 kilometers long tunnel from Arna, opened in 1964. These days, a construction work is advancing on a second tunnel, due for opening in 2022.
On your way to the town centre
On your way through the town centre, you pass the little lake Lille Lungegårdsvann, which some hundred years ago was connected to the fjord. The street along the lake is still called Kaigaten, meaning quay street, which seems rather odd today. On the opposite side of the lake, you’ll find the art galleries Kode-museums.
Further on, you pass the open square Festplassen, used for big occations like the national day. Finally you pass city park Byparken with the music pavilion and one of the town’s Edvard Grieg statues, before arriving at the Blue Stone at central square Torgallmenningen. This is where local people often meet.
