Fish Market, Bergen
(3.1/5 based on 3,600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • With the exception of Sunday mmáte the opportunity every day to visit this legendary fish market on the banks of the Aquarium dock. Certainly do not regret it. There are many dealers and customers are struggling. You taste the huge amount of fish, crabs, mussels and other marine animals. You can find here products as ready to be eaten along with the place where it is eaten, smoked salmon or fresh fish to prepare at home. It is one of the most beautiful fish markets. Of course, the quality of needosahuje the size of Tokyo, however, easily aligned! Watch out let but the operating time. Sellers are here only in the morning and afternoon.

  • Incredible for the arrangement of the rooms, for the great catch of fish on display (and cooked) and the fact that all managers are Italian. A long course covered with fish and shellfish of every type and quantity. In addition to a tourist attraction is an amazing culinary attraction. larger stalls also have tables for not eating take-away but with comfort

  • The fish market is absolutely the best spot in Bergen for lunch. Fresh fish of all types, cooked and presented in all manners and delicious. Take advantage of the wide selection of fresh made breads, ...  more »

  • Went here as a tourist, so good for that. Lots of cooked and fresh seafood. And if you fancy it you can get whale meat cooked in a variety of ways. Seafood was really good and fresh but prices are super high, so you know that you're paying for the experience to a large degree. Luckily they speak many languages here so they can cater to a lot of the tourists. Open most of the day and they have some non seafood items as well and various smoked salmon and dried fishes in case you want to take something away.
  • As many others have pointed out, the place is clearly made for tourists. It's an interesting place to visit, but if you want to eat something be ready to spend more than usual. You can have the same or even better fish in another place for less money. Just one interesting fact: there are a lot of Italians among the sellers :D
  • Lively market with shopkeepers that call out, ask where you're from, and offer samples. A real treat. Amazing variety of sea food available. There is only 1 public toilet.
  • A few stores here selling quick meal and fresh seafood. OK place. Historic place. Centrally located and plenty of other options around if you are not in the mood for fish.
  • John & Claudia Thursday 5 May. Only found one stall. No advice re where we could eat fresh sea food. It was far better when I was there in 1955. Where have the stone troughs with the live fish gone? Could not find bus for City Tour with Bergen Card. No local bus either for a tour. Most said it was a discount card and we had to pay more. BAD! BAD! BAD!
