Great city just to walk around and take it all in. Top tip take the Funacular to Mt Floyen but get there early! We had no queue and then spent an hour or so walking around at the top. When we came down the queue must of been well over an hour to get on this train. Only costs about £10 each. Read Less

We had sunny 78F weather here, and locals said it was only the 9th sunny day this year! It made for an impossibly picturesque day, starting with the Bergenhus Festning (Fortress), the Brygge area (a wondrous wooden wharf neighborhood where the back yards were even more impressive than the waterfront facades), continuing to the funicular to the top of Mount Floyen for the amazing overlook and nature walk downhill, and just walking all around the harbor area, the fish market etc. Invigorating.

Took Hop On Hop Off bus around the city. I strongly recommend taking the bus to the Tram station on a sunny day. Took best photos of the cruise at the top of the mountain -- could see all the way to the ocean -- MAGNIFICENT!!!!!!!!!!!

We love visiting Juhls' silver gallery on the Bryggen. On this visit we discovered the delightful "Kaf", just behind the main facade of this Unesco World Hertiage site. Fabulous coffee - the best we had all trip.

I walked around the Bergenhus Festning (Bergenhus Fortress) and Mariakirken (St Mary's Church). I then walked to the Mount Fløyen lower funicular station, rode the funicular, and walked around part of the top of Mount Fløyen (Fløyfjellet), including to Skomakerdiket (a lake). After I rode the funicular back down the mountain, I walked to and around the city center and the Bryggen (the old wharf), before heading back to the ship. Read Less

Beautiful Stave church visit, brief tour of the Grieg home and the perfect amount of time to tour the property independently. Concert was first rate.

Used Hop on Hop off with planned stop at the Mt. Floyen tram to the mountain top. CAREFUL! I thought we were buying a ticket that included the tram ticket (avoids long line at tram station). The lady asked and I said yes, I wanted tram tickets. Turned out I did not get tickets (thought I did with the receipt). Fortunately, while standing in line to board the tram, I noticed other tourists holding printed cardboard tickets. I asked an attendant (very friendly and helpful), and was told the bus receipt was NOT a ticket. She walked me back to the ticket window and got me two tickets through a side window, bypassing the crowd. She advised me that this was a common thing with the Hop on Hop off ticket sellers at the bus stop. Word to the wise! Read Less

It's a city, and the ship docks a little way from the city centre, so there is a bit if a trek into town first of all. Funicular railway is very popular with great views over the city from the top. Lots of interest in the city, fish market, shops, museums, and all the usual city life. Oh and the ubiquitous expensive Norwegian coffee..... Read Less

Lovely port for walking at your own pace. Everything is pretty close to the ship. The Bryggen hanseatic wharf, outdoor cafes, the fish market was a highlight.

Did Bergen on our own using the Hop-on, Hop-off bus, which was a lot cheaper and more convenient than the cruise operated shore excursion. Lots of shopping in Bergen as well.

We bought ticket to the Funicular online. I recommend you to do so as the line was very long at the ticket booth which we skip to where you get to the cars. But that itself was a very long line too. Then we went to the fish market to have seafood. We had the mix plate that cost 200.00 Euros and only the oyster and lobster was good, others are not fresh at all. What a rip off! Read Less

We were lucky, the Sunday morning weather was beautiful. We did our homework beforehand and were able to easily walk to the our points of interest.

Bergen is an interesting city to visit and quite compact for walking around. Can recommend a visit to the Fish Market on the harbour (inside and out) and, if feeling energetic, take a trip on the funicular to the top of Mount Floyen and after spending some time at the top walk down through small woodland then past the modern and old wooden houses (allow about 40 minutes for the walk).

Managed to find vehicular tram to climb mountain. Worth the view. About £9 Return per person. Interesting fish/food market.
