About Bergen

Bergen is an old trading city that dates back from 1020. The city was founded in 1070. Remains from the early trading periods can still be found at the ‘Bryggen’ area in Bergen centre. Bergen was the largest city in Norway until 1830’s. It is known to be the rainiest city in Europe. When it is not raining, the city is a jewel in the way it is located between seven mountains and the fjords. From the city centre, you can take the train up to the mountain Fløyen where you have a scenic view of the city centre and the fjords. Next to Bryggen, the famous fish market is located. Bergen’s seven mountains offer a wide range of hiking possibilities easily accessible from the city centre
