Fish Market, Bergen

2.9
#1 of 267 in Shopping in Norway
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. Make Fish Market a centerpiece of your Bergen vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bergen travel planner.

  • If you think you find a quaint fish market is better to change air and go to Milan! What was the Bergen fish market is, in my opinion, now the festival of street food, honey for unsuspecting tourists, the Babel of consumerism with the table not understandable for the quality of the product. Particular point to the laws of Physics: a young staff in every stand, chaos of bystanders, chaos in multiethnic staff, organizational chaos, chaos meteo...ma to entropic effect .... everything works.

  • There is very much to see and to experience, but the prices are not acceptable. A plastic dish with crab €21,-, a plastic plate with small fish selection 45,-€!

  • 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.
