Fish Market, Bergen

(4,000+ reviews on the web)
Pier / Boardwalk
Shop and eat your way through Fish Market, the site that has served as the meeting place for fisherman, traders, and locals alike since the 12th century. Located in the very center of the city on the wharf, it is one of the most popular outdoor markets in Norway and is often bustling with action. Browse the stalls of fresh fish and other seafood and view the live catches from that morning. Purchase crab, shrimp, caviar, smoked salmon, cod, or even whale from one of the friendly fishmongers. Sample some of the local cuisine at one of the many vendors along the market. You can also buy souvenirs, local art, flowers, fruits, and vegetables here. Arrive early to avoid the crowds. A visit to Fish Market represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bergen tourist route planner to plot your vacation.

  • Overpriced and not so tasty food. Not what it was once in time.
  • Whale meat was not good as I thought. But whether the different flavors! Salmon is not going to say another happening more where that came from. I think we have a different process so there's difference. I'm not saying anything about the presentation. Sucks and beyond plastic plate spoon!
