BERGEN - The Gateway to the Fjords of Norway

Welcome to Bergen, the old city with a young outlook. A city with its feet in the sea, its head in the skies and its heart in the right place - full of infectious enthusiasm, and happy to share it with visitors.

Bergen may not be a particularly large city by European standards, but it nevertheless has plenty to offer those who want to experience something new. Simply bursting with vitality, Bergen is not to be missed! 


Here, history and long-standing traditions are as important as the city's vibrant cultural life. The Hanseatic legacy goes hand-in-hand with the status of European City of Culture (2000), both of which are reflected in the cityscape. In the global scheme of things, Bergen is a truly unique city. The main reason for this is its wonderful location and world-famous surroundings: the seven great mountains and the fjords go towards creating an international and yet completely idiosyncratic atmosphere, which is sure to make a lasting impression on all who visit Bergen.

How to get there:

Bergen is easy to get to, from the rest of Norway and from abroad. Thanks to direct flights from Copenhagen, Stockholm, Reykjavik, Helsinki, Amsterdam and London, you only need to change planes once to reach Bergen from far-away destinations. Low-fare airlines also operate direct flights to Bergen from international airports (Paris, Hamburg, Newcastle, Prague, London and more). You can also take direct sea routes from Denmark and Newcastle-upon-Tyne in England, as well as from the Faeroe Islands, Iceland and Shetland.

Norwegian State Railways (NSB) runs an extensive network of services, and the Bergen Railway between Oslo and Bergen is an experience in itself. By train, you can travel from city centre to city centre.

Domestic air connections are very good, from our local airport Flesland
