Walking Tour in Bergen of the Past and Present

Walking Tour in Bergen of the Past and Present

We meet at the Rosenkrantz Tower inside the Bergen fortress.

NOTE - we walk up-hill on cobblestone. This tour requires a moderate fitness. If you don't think you'll be able to walk up-hill, I recommend booking our private tour.

This small-group walking tour combines history, culture and everyday life as we walk through both the most famous attractions of Bergen and the off-the-beaten path parts of the city. We will discuss not just the fascinating history of Bergen, but also what it's like to live in Bergen today - including everyday life, housing, work, education and anything you wish to ask. We'll explore the issues currently facing Bergen today, but also what makes Bergen a special place to live.

We will walk through historical locations past picturesque houses, churches, hills and parks. You'll get an idea of museums, restaurants and shops that you can explore on your own.

Group size: 14
