Wake to thrilling views of mountains and glimpses of glittering fjords—the waterside city of Bergen is the gateway to Norway’s fjords and enjoys a truly spectacular setting. There has been a settlement here since the 11th century and the colorful, gabled buildings of Bryggen— originally built by medieval German merchants and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site— stand as testament to its fascinating and successful trading history. Away from the waterfront, Norway’s second city has plenty to explore from the landmark 12th-century St Mary’s Church; several interesting museums; and the notable fortress, to the fascinating fish market. History is not the city’s only draw—the funicular railway to the summit of Mount Fløyen or the cable car up to Mount Ulriken Bergen reward visitors with stunning panoramas, while several art galleries offer visual stimulation and beauty of a different kind.
