This was a highlight for me, the Old Town is very well worth a visit. It has some souvenir shops and we bought mittens and caps here as we headed off to the higher areas in Norway.

You will definitely visit this place while in Bergen. Pseudo authentic views of old buildings. Good for a stroll. Visit the fish market place nearby. If you have time, definitely head up the hill behind the front raw of buildings and climb the steps of curvy streets and passages of the old district.

It rained the day we visited Bryggen, and there was a certain musky smell from all the timber construction which makes up this group of buildings. The cute facades of the buildings opened up into an unsuspecting maze of alleyways through the narrow entrances. Inside were all sorts of shops catering to the tourist. If you're on a hunt for...

A shuttle bus from the ship into town with modern shops, then on through the Fish market, where all the shell fish are laid out in a very delightful manner. then across to the harbour where the shops are all wooden and very well stocked, and very colourful. you can spend quite some time looking in these stores. also some...

Shows bergen in all its splendour. The view of harbour and mountains from the old buildings are breathtaking. When is it not raining then.

Lovely area to walk around and close to Bergens other items of interest inc the funicular railway, fjord cruises, fish market and historic sites such as the castle. We visited in Feb when the area was quiet but we were told that in the summer months it can get very crowded when the cruise ships come in and coach parties... More

This area is well worth seeing but it is really a "tourist trap". Very crowded in summer, especially if a lot of cruise ships are in. The old preserved buildings are really interesting. Lots of shops, resturants. Very expensive.

Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf reminds you, Norway is a merchant powerhouse, once a member of the Hanseatic League with ports throughout the Baltic. If I grew up here I would have been a fisherman, I rise and leave early like the fishermen. Everybody else sleeps till almost noon, well the cafe's open at 11 am. Therefore, Bergen retains the quaint character... More
