Nice to explore the fortress in total. Unfortunately Rosenkrantz tower was closed on day of visit so can't comment. Otherwise, worth a visit.

Plenty to see on the outside if you don't want to pay to go into Rosenkrantz Tower or Hakon's Hall. There are nice views of the harbor if you walk out to the end where the cannons are.

The fortress grounds are free - it is still an active military site but the Norwegian forces allow public access. You can take a walk around the walls and look at various buildings from several eras and see statues as well. Some Bergen locals walk...More

Bergenhus Fortress is a very nice historical monument. There are not that many fortresses, especially in northern Europe, that go back to the 13th century. We enjoyed visiting Bergenhus Fortress. Besides, it does not take a huge effort - just walk around the bay.

The grounds are open to the public but there is a fee to access Rosenkrantz Tower with the art exhibits or Hakon’s Hall. We had little time so just walked the grounds which were partially closed as they were setting up for a rock concert....More
