Bergen was beautiful.
Sail Date: April 2019
Bergen was beautiful. So glad we did the funicular ride up the hillside. Views of the port were amazing. Town is clean and pleasant to walk around in. Would love to visit again.

There is a museum directly across from the ship's berth that is well worth a visit. It is free and has a variety of exhibits. I was most fascinated with the exhibit dedicated to WW II resistance and the "Shetland Bus," the resistance pipeline between Bergen and the Shetland Islands. The architecture of the old town around the railroad station is picturesque. Wandering down alleyways and side streets all over town is always rewarding - lots of boutique shops, coffee houses, local restaurants with local pricing, and more picturesque neighborhoods.

We took the included Viking tour and again it was a bit of a disappointment. The stops were uninteresting and the bus ride was long and boring. We walked around on our own and had a much better time. We also did the Taste of Norwegian Farm Life optional tour and we enjoyed that very much. It was such fun to go to a real working farm and the farmer host and his family were funny and welcoming. Have the hot chocolate when you go it was the best. Read Less
