We were taken from the docks to the city centre by a courtesy coach. Bergen is a city that is easily explored independently so we went to the Tourist Information Centre first to collect leaflets and to purchase tickets for the funicular train up Mount Floyen. This is a "must do" while in Bergen, the views are spectacular and we were lucky it was a sunny (and dry!)morning. Afterwards we explored the old buildings of Bryggen, the Hanseatic wharf - a maze of narrow alleyways between the tall multicoloured buildings. The onwards to the fish market with its many stalls of salmon, king crab, large prawns and even whale meat which some of our Japanese companions were enjoying.
