SHORE EXCURSION BERGEN: itinerary
Our Bergen shore excursion begins at Bergenhus fortress, one of the oldest and best-preserved castles in Norway. We’ll learn about the two remaining medieval buildings; King Haakon’s Hall and Rosenkrantz Tower.
We’ll of course see the historic harbour of Bryggen, and it’s characteristic wooden houses with coloured facades and tiled pointy roofs. Once a thriving trading point, the area has been damaged by various fires throughout the years and has been rebuilt many times. Today the precious timber houses are carefully monitored, restored and preserved.
Next our Bergen shore excursion goes to the Fish and Flower Market on the waterfront. Mingle with the locals and try some fresh oysters or cooked shrimp in this lively spot.
We’ll conclude the trip by passing through City Park and then the Greighall; Bergen’s 1,500 seat concert hall. Constructed in 1978, the hall is now home to the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra.
