Among the hallmarks of its history, Bergen stood as Norway's capital for a while in the 13th century.

Such is the importance of its harbour that UNESCO has protected its Bryggen quays and the city remains to this day a major international hub for shipping, subsea technology and aquaculture.

Bergen, Norway

Bergen has a great deal going for it. Norway's second city is strikingly set on a convergence of fjords, backed by steeped, forested slopes. Fascinating and picturesque quarters wait to be explored – not only Bryggen, the famous old timber wharf with Unesco World Heritage Site status, but also residential neighbourhoods with photogenic, white-painted wooden houses lining quiet cobbled streets.

On a Norwegian scale, Bergen is a large city, but one with a small-town charm and atmosphere. Its passionately patriotic inhabitants are proud of their many-sided city and its history and cultural traditions.
