There is not a huge amount of things going on in Bergen, a UNESCO World Heritage site, but the shopping/market in the old wooden buildings is a great experience, with quirky shops containing everything touristy, from fridge magnets and snow globes, to Fox stoles and moose heads. A number of passengers recommended the Ice Bar, where everything therein was made of ice, but it sounded a costly experience. Read Less

Ship sailed only a few hours after we got to Bergen due to Dorian. We did the Oslo pre-cruise (Hotel Thon Opera ideally located), then train to Bergen.

While we were supposed to be there two days, fringes of Hurricane Dorian necessitated our leaving the evening we boarded. Disappointing not to be able to see more of Bergen, but necessary.

I loved the town center of Bergen and would like to go back someday to spend more time there. We did an independent boat excursion that took us to the end of a smaller fjord. So much beauty!

Used a local guide to tour this lovely city on the morning before we set sail. Took the cable car up Mount Fløyen on a very worthwhile trip watching MS Nordlys sail into harbour before we boarded.

It was unfortunate, but expected, that it was pouring down rain on this day! Still, it was a great tour.

I have been to Bergen many times. Took city tour to gather more information and see new parts of the city.

Bergen is a true city with lots of character and would be best enjoyed over a few days. The Bryggen area is quite interesting and worth a visit when not overrun with tourists from the large cruise ships, and there are a number of well-rated shops and restaurants around that area sprinkled among some very horrible souvenir shops. The old fort is also quite interesting to visit and hosts the largest beer festival in Norway (featuring only Norwegian beers), which happened to be going on while we were in town. Also, I can highly recommend taking the funicular railway to the top of the mountain overlooking the city, then walking through the woods to a small lake and then down the hill back to the city (which is only a few kilometers and does not take much time going down - maybe 45 minutes at most and not a difficult walk since much of the way is paved or over nice trails, but good shoes are recommended as it can be steep in places). There are a number of wonderful restaurants, galleries, coffee shops, clothing boutiques, museums and nearby scenic destinations that are not-to-miss (including the home of Edvard Grieg and the Flam railway). We loved Bergen and thought it was a bit edgier and more true/gritty of a city than Oslo and some of the smaller and more picturesque cities and fishing ports we stopped at along our journey.
