Fish Market, Bergen

2.4
#1 of 67 in Shopping in Norway
Pier / Boardwalk Flea Market
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.

  • JUNE 2015 cute place to spend a leisurely lunch just steps from Bryggen. Very good seafood, high prices as in all of Norway, several stand from which to choose your dish. Recommended if you are looking for something nice and informal.

  • The fiske torget, fish market, is kinda the core of bustle and activity in Central Bergen. Maybe not quite picturesque and quaint even due to the fact that here work there, practically, only foreign students (mainly Italian and Spanish) you make some Norwegian experience (temporary or permanent) but certainly is lively, fun and cute. It is also true that the prices are quite exaggerated though I seem totally aligned to the general context in Norway. And it is also true that everyone knows of very commercial and some tourist trap since it is a place of passage (especially for those coming from cruise ships). Certainly not play for finding the paella at these latitudes ... much better salmon, herring, shrimp or mega crabs. The indoor market comprises of the premises, if possible, even more expensive ^_^ as real restaurants (as well as the fish market) ... obviously with more variety than the one shown on outdoor benches. In any case, if it happens the right dosage of colors at sunset, stay put to enjoy some fish or seafood and watching spellbound the sea and the sky becomes a pleasant must...in bottom some skewer or a shrimp dish will not send to ruin anybody. Add the view of Bryggen with its fantastic log cabins and you feel like you want to stay here for hours. And then ... who said that you're forced to buy fish ^_^, you can also simply enjoy the place and the time.

  • Good place to have a meal. All very clean, nice and with very good service. The price varies a bit between the stalls.

  • 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!

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.
