    A new year visit to Bergen (a few years ago). Soo sunny, not particullary cold (-4 C) for a winter and a splendid morning panorama. what a whale of time and what a reward! At the top, there are plenty of walking paths for anyone.

    Aside from the fact that it is a colorful place, it becomes the focus for learning about some truly important aspects of history. It is a World Heritage Site for good reason. Many restaurants in the area, so it is part of an enjoyable walk.

    I visited the house,exhibition area and final resting place of Edward Grieg on a wet Wednesday 3rd November. It was the quiet season with very few visitors. The enthusiasm and kindness from both Anna at the exhibition and Dagmar as the house guide was exceptional. The whole area is so full of atmosphere. It was a memory I will keep.To get there from Bergen needs some planning...the final part is a 15 minute walk.If I have a complaint its that it is not well advertised in Bergen ,you have to work out yourself how to get there.Do yourself a favour and visit

    We took the stepped route up and it was pretty hard at times but worth it for the amazing views at top, I highly recommend walking back down also as the route is great in the snow, really worth doing and seeing more than a cable car !

    You will lose your breath couple of times but it’s worth it. That’s the closest accessible spot where you can see breathtaking view on Bergen city.

    Must do hike on a sunny day. Views are great strongly recommend using apps like Strava or maps.cz as its sometimes hard to find the trail. 10/10 would recommend.

    The four Kode buildings and the Bergen Hall in between appear too large, because each building only housed a few rooms and there was a lot of empty space. Still the collection is interesting as well as the temporary exhibitions. The Romantic paintings of JC Dahl, the father of painting in Norway are wonderful (if you like Caspar David Friedrich, you will understand). Also, the Edvard Munchs are not to be missed. Unfortunately, during our visit many had been removed without much explanation. The Kunsthalle had a nice show a graduates from the art academy and Kode 4 offered a provocative exhibition on queerness. Since their collection is so vast, there could have been less empty spaces in all of the buildings. One ticket covers all, you don't need the Bergen pass for that.

    The staff in here are really knowledgeable and helpful and you can buy tickets to a variety of activities in the office.

    Beware, though, queue can be slow. There’s a ticketing system to keep it organised though.

    It is worth a visit because fishing is a large part of Bergen's cultural heritage. The offer is huge and well presented and the restaurants offer varied dishes with an amazing waterfront view. You can read the menus in advance at the entrances and decide which restaurant would be a better choice for you. We loved the Norwegian fish soup, it is very tasty and served with bread and butter it is a meal on its own.

    Great to experience historic bergen. Worth to take the tour and get some background information. Even though the tour is quite short it is not expensive.

    Really cool building, but unfortunately it was fenced off so we couldn't get closer. It's still worth a stop, a really beautiful and peaceful stroll through a wooded area. There were only a few other people in the area, so we were really able to enjoy this peacefully. It probably won't be a long stop, unless you pack yourself a picnic, so you don't need to allot too much time for it.

    If you're looking for somewhere in Bergen to sit and enjoy the scenery for a bit on your visit, this park is great - centrally located, very well maintained and scenic. We went in March so the flowers and plants were no where near their best, but it was nice to see spring just starting!

    Nice place to spend an evening visiting. See how the people of Bergen lived in the old days.
    See how the houses have changed over time.

    It was OK for what it was. Commentary in Norwegian which is fair enough. Most of it indoors so very good for rainy day of which there are many in Bergen.
