rambling collection of fortifications still used by the army. Well worth visiting. The Rosencrantz tower and some of the ramparts are very old, but all of it is evocative and interesting.

If you are in Bergen and just wandering the city then it's worth taking a walk around the area and wandering into the museum to see how the fort began its life and how it's evolved over the centuries. We did it as part of walk around Bergen - down from Mt Floyen, around the narrow streets and into the Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf area out to Bergenhus Festning and then back into the centre. There's not much there but it's worth a wander.

There's nothing much to see. The stroll is peaceful but the structures are not impressive. There are other things to see.

This is not a grand castle like those in the UK or Spain or France. But it still was interesting to see what a city castle looked like. And it's a quiet haven compared to the bustling city center.

Very beautiful fortress, specially if you arrive to Bergen by cruise. You can climb to the fortress and have beautiful views of the harbor and Brygen.
