  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Bergen came to prominence as the heart of the busy Norwegian fishing trade, though don’t let that put you off: for the tourist it offers so much more. For a start, the city centre is so old and ornate that UNESCO have deemed it worthy of ‘world heritage sight’ status, with sights including an aging fish market, the tiny wooden houses that form the core of the city, and date back to the 1700s, and the striking draw of the 13th century Bergenhus Fortress.

    The sights to be found in Bergen, to be honest, are almost countless. You could write a lengthy book on this tiny city, with every corner seeming to hide something new and enticing to stare at, photograph or explore for innumerable happy hours. The German Wharf is at the very heart of it all, with its colorful, photogenic buildings that have been at the heart of countless fires, but continue to be rebuilt from wood.

    Exploring the Holmen – a center of 13th century political power – reveals the rustic, crumbling side of this ancient city, with the monumental Hakon Hall sitting in the heart of it all, still standing proud after all this time. The array of museums and impressive churches to be found in the city is expansive, while you can get a stunning overview of it all from the top of the Floibanen, a funicular that takes you to the heights of a local peak. For a real taste of how life was in old times (rather than just a glance at the impressive buildings), try the out of town reconstruction at Gamle Bergen, a hilly, wooden town.

    If you find time to get out of town, you’ll find yourself amongst some of the most beautiful fjords in Norway, sights that in many places would be real must sees, but with so much on offer in Bergen you could be forgiven for giving them a miss, though you may regret it. It might not be up there with the world’s top names in tourism, but Bergen’s certainly equally memorable.

    Don't miss to take the cable car at floybanen, The cable car will take the people up to see the top of mount floyen and you can see the landscape view of Bergen city from the height, It's so beautiful sight, Floybanen is one of Bergen tourist spot and it's very famous.
