Very easy on the eye but not so good for the wallet! Lots of small boutiques set amongst some attractively renovated buildings. Overrun with tourists who cannot all cram in the one public toilet in the area. Very close to the Fishmarket and city centre.

We were fortunate to be in Bergen on one of the few days a year that it didn't rain and enjoyed lovely sunshine. Very pleasant to stroll around the wharf area, taking in the tradition coloured houses and the boats bobbing on the water. Shame...More

We walked all over from end to end, took in the museums, learned a lot of history, ate lots of great food.

When you walk around the Buildings you feel you have Travelled Back in Time. A Great example of Restoration of History.

The center of Bergen is compact and very walkable and the old world charm has been retained within the Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf notwithstanding the fact that most of the businesses located within cater to tourists. The shops offer some lovely items, especially if you live...More

The place is very good and you can just go for a casual stroll. They also sell some souvenirs at a good price.

This museum -- actually, three locations connected by shuttle -- is a multi-faceted treat. The life of German traders, living within but not part of a Norwegian town, is interesting by itself but the insight into a piece of national history makes it better. Do...More

You can google "Norway in a nutshell" and have someone putting together a combo for you. But it's totally doable on your own. Just buy the train ticket from Oslo to Flam on NSB website, and the Naeroyfjord cruise from Flam... More
