Pretty town. The funicular is great but buy ticket online before you go as there is an enormous queue for them at the port.

The fish market is also good fun - but expensive. Read Less

We booked the Concert at Troldhaugen independently at far less than the cost of the comparable Windstar excursion.

Walked around Bergen, found lovely old houses by sea plus wandered around stalls at open air market, fresh seafood off of trawlers, saw whale meat and reindeer meat. Also lovely fruit, bought punnet juicy strawberries.

Make sure you take the tram to see the scenic view of the city (I think they call it a Funicular). Check out the fish market and try the reindeer sausage with berry jam!

There is simply too much to do at Bergen for one day. Do consider disembark early at Bergen for the infamous railway to Flam/Oslo if the second largest city of Norway falls in the end of cruise. Though the rail is often offered as an excursion, missing Bryggen and natural beauty around Bergen will leave a big regret. Bergen Card is good for KODE, but not accepted for the funicular and Hanseatic Museum. Maritime museum was off the beaten path, but the 1pm guided tour may worth the time and they are updating the exhibits. Shipping in Norway is closely associated with today's cruise industry - both NCL and RCCL were founded by Norwegians, with the latter still partly controlled by a Norwegian family. The legacy of Norwegian shipping certainly gives some insight into today's success of the USA-based cruise lines. Another very relevant museum was the fisheries museum that was rather close to one of the smaller cruise docks - there you will find Norway's somewhat ambiguous, conflicting attitude over fishing/conservation. Definitely not a full story here, but those missing pages can be put together on Google. Fish market in Bergen did look overpriced and touristic to me. Did the 3.5 hour cruise around Osteroy, primarily for the narrow passage of Mostraumen - mixed feeling about this one, as breathtaking scenery only accounted for about half-hour. Buses are very frequent in Bergen with many lines running near cruise docks. Bergen Cards entitle you to limitless rides. Read Less

5 minute walk to the town from the Port; There happened to be a Hanseatic Festival ongoing at the time, so the town was busy and vibrant. Lots to see and do.

Others obviously had the same thought and the town was very crowded. We discovered there was free wifi in the tourist information centre so spent some time sitting there catching up with emails!
