Useful links to Bergen
Bergen is Norway’s second largest city, with the facilities of a large city, and the charm and atmosphere of a small city, with its wooden houses and narrow cobbled streets. Bryggen is the old trading wharf that still looks the same as it did when the town was in its infancy.
Bryggen is the face of Bergen. But
more than that – Bryggen is a port of
our collective cultural heritage and has
its place on UNESCO’s World Heritage
List. Therefore Bergen too is classified
a World Heritage City.
Bergen is surrounded by one of the
world’s greatest tourist attractions,
the Norwegian fjords. The city is the
Gateway to these natural masterpieces,
which continue to amaze the Norwegian
people, let alone our international visitors.
The Norwegian fjords have now
been included on UNESCO’s World
Frequently updated visitors guide from the Tourist Board.
