To enjoy the nature: take a cable car, walk in the woods, and look down from high at the shimmering sea of the fjord, it's unforgettable. Then you might happen to see a squirrel running across to tourists, grabbing a piece of pizza and taking it up a tree.

I ate the excellent fresh fish right on the port in the gourmet market. You can eat everything from local dishes to classic fried food, you can try salmon cooked in traditional and modern ways, and the more curious can also taste whale.

The best souvenir shops and handicraft products are concentrated in the district of Bryggen. The woolen clothes with traditional Sami designs are very beautiful. The only downside is that the prices are a little high. Another place to shop is the fish market, where you can find smoked salmon (very good) and traditional North Sea crab-based food.

The best season is from May to September. Take a cruise to leave your stress behind. You will open up new horizons and see unique landscapes. I recommend it to those who love nature and want a relaxing holiday. Not suitable for those who want chaos and nightlife, but nature lovers will definitely love it.

Before choosing your hotel, it's good to compare prices. Especially given that many hotels do not have their own parking lot, and then you usually have to leave your car in the street or in a parking lot for a fee.

Ther are many young Italians who work in the harbour area where you can taste the local specialties: grilled meat, shrimp, salmon, crabs, wonderful fresh lobster! In the morning, the market is very lively and as well as fresh seafood, you can get free samples of reindeer or whale salami, many types of caviar jam and paté.

Go in summer because there's more light. You have to dress for rain (it rains more than 300 days per year). Suitable for nature and water lovers. And it's the "capital" of the fjords and salmon, it's famous for the fish market where you can eat on the spot, there are many Italians who work there and who can give you good tips.

I think that the best time to visit is June and the first 3 weeks of July. The 1st reason is that the days are very long and it's only dark for a few hours. The 2nd reason is that the temperature is alright - after mid-August we found ourselves going from 36°C in Sardinia to 5°C in Bergen :::::: At least once a day there's a bit of rain, which doesn't manage to spoil the trip!

the weekly market is truly unique, handicrafts, agricultural products, and the people are very unique, if I had to choose a place to live I think eleggerei Bergen would be my city. the streets are clean, people are friendly in their own way, the architecture is fascinating, if you love to walk, even alone, this town is for you

I recommend you to rent a car and drive along the entire west coast of Norway. You will be enchanted by the splendid fjords. Take the road from Bergen to Bodo. From there take a ferry and go to visit the beautiful Lofoten Islands. Sources: I've done just that and it was the best trip I'd ever been on.

A wonderful location, easily reached from Oslo with a short plane ride. You can take boat trips of varying lengths along the fjords, they are well-organized and pleasant. You can get there on your own and then join organised tours. The people are very friendly and welcoming. Norway, in general, is very conscious of tourists' needs.

Akvariet, the city aquarium, boasts of one of the most extensive collections of marine species in Europe. The Bergen Art Museum displays an extensive collection of art from Norway and other parts of the world. This collection spans a period of seven centuries and is housed in three buildings. The St. Mary’s Church is the oldest structure in Bergen and one of the most stunning churches in the country; especially of note is the original altar and carvings portraying various scenes.
Mount Ulriken is the highest peak in the region which can be accessed by a cable car. It is ... More popular for its numerous walking trails and panoramic views of the region. Sognefjord, the country’s longest and deepest fjord, makes for an interesting one-day trip. 
Bergen hosts several festivals all year round. One of the popular ones is the Bergen Night Jazz Festival held from May–June; jazz, rock and folk concerts are held at venues all over town.

Bergen is located on the south-western coast of Norway. This city of approximately 245,000 inhabitants is the largest Norwegian port and also one of the largest ports in Europe.
The topography of the region is quite varied with some of the most beautiful fjords in the country on one side, and on the other side, the city is flanked by seven hills.
Bergen is the rainiest city with rainfall lasting for weeks together; this has earned it the title of ‘the city of rain’. At the same time it has the warmest climate in the country with the average temperature in summer ... More at 15°C.
All through its history, Bergen has been an important centre for trade and commerce across Europe. In the recent years, it has also developed as a cultural centre by playing host to a number of festivals.

Don't miss the Fishmarket .. awesome! The city is big and beautiful (by Nordic standards) and the scenery is wonderful and relaxing. You can spend a beautiful summer here, especially if you like cooler temperatures. The only downside is the cost ...
