The city of the Seven Mountains

De syv fjell (The Seven Mountains) surround the center of the misty harbor town of Bergen. Nestled on the country’s rocky west coast, Bergen is exciting and charming, an ideal starting point for fjord tours and cruises. Bryggen – the medieval fish market street - also known as Tyskebryggen (the German Wharf), is one of the city’s most picturesque sights. Bryggen has been a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site since 1979 – a well deserved accolade, for its unique architecture.

The heart of Bergen's waterfront Editors' Note

Fisketorget, with its abundance of fish, flowers, fruits, vegetables, handicrafts and souvenirs, is a tourists paradise in Bergen. Also popular with locals seeking great deals to take home, the market takes on the personality of the people of the city in interesting and personal ways.

From eating raw oysters at a nearby stand, to conversing with merchants along the rows of shops, visitors get a glimpse of the way the city has always been. The smells, tastes, and sounds of the waterfront alive with age old commerce, is perhaps the best way to describe the Fish Market. Bergen is after all a seafaring city, where else would its heart be?
