Bergen

City of Seven Mountains

A city famed for its underground music scene, Bergen also serves as the gateway to the fjords of Norway's western coastline. Once a major merchant colony of the powerful Hanseatic League (a medieval trade federation), the city prospered by linking continental Europe with the northern parts of Scandinavia. Although relics of Bergen's Hanseatic past remain in and around the city's World Heritage-listed harbor, the city now represents one of the country's most modern centers, thriving largely because of its tourism and offshore petroleum industries. Often called the "City of the Seven Mountains," Bergen provides a comfortable urban base for day trips into the surrounding countryside, which is known for its rugged natural scenery and quaint villages. Take a peek at our online itinerary creator: Bergen and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in Bergen

As a major Norwegian city, Bergen offers accommodations--and just about everything else--at a high price. Try to stay in the picturesque Bryggen wharf area near the fish market, or in the city center. If you’re looking for lively nightlife, check out rooms close to the city’s university. To find less-expensive lodging, search for hostels in the city center and campsites just out of town. Alternatively, live like a local by staying in a small guesthouse.
