About
This fictional tour takes you back to the 7th of April 1590 and follows Anne Pedersdotter who has been condemned to burn at the stake, convicted a witch. Accompany her on her last walk through 16th century Bergen as she recounts the story of her demise. From the respected wife of a prominent priest and teacher, best friends with the Governor's wife, to being found guilty of witchcraft. Anne will guide you around Vågen, the fjord of Bergen, revealing the 16th century landmarks of this powerful fishing port. You will encounter the wooden houses of Bryggen, Lille Øvergaten, the oldest cobbled street in Bergen, and pass by the famous Fish Market on Strandkaien. She will bring you all the way to the Witches' Monument on the tip of Nordnes, the site of her execution. The tour is ready whenever you are and the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.

Nice personal stroy about a woman but not many details about the city

At the beginning of the tour, you get some interesting facts about Bergen in the late 16th century, about the live as a women and the trading. The tour starts at the Rosenkranztower and you walk to Bryggen. Then the story becomes more and more about the witch itself and how she feels. And one point we stopped the tour because we had the feeling that we would not get any new facts from it. We heard the rest at home and indeed, everything we missed (the whole part at Nordnes peninsular) was mostly her describing her walk to her execution.
I would recommend to walk the tour since it covers the most important buildings of Bergen, but take your information out a travelguide or from the internet to also get some information about more recent buildings etc.

Thanks for the feedback Joana. This tour gets mixed reviews. Some people love it, and think more factual information would be boring. It is a compelling story, as you say. Other people are like you and would prefer more information about Bergen's history. That's understandable.

This Audio Tour was an experience to last a lifetime as it provided a unique opportunity to really connect with Bergen's fascinating history and experience a walk to remember.
The audio tour vividly recounted a scenario from the past that emotionally engaged the listener as well as physically engaging with the local surroundings.
A truly magical experience! !!
