Why You Should Visit Bergen
Bergen is Norway’s second largest city known for its incredible natural landscape. Along with its waterside location, the city is surrounded by mountainous terrain and is home to many charming old buildings which makes it perfect for sightseers. If you are up for the challenge then consider hiking up to some of the mountain panorama spots to enjoy spectacular views over the city, or take a boat trip out to the fjords and see the vast Norwegian wilderness up close. In Bergen travelers can also look forward to a diverse calendar of festivals and cultural events each year such as the Bergenfest during the spring or the two-week Nattjazz festival at the beginning of the summer. One of the best places to start off your journey is in the Downtown district which is home to a variety of museums as well as the Bergen Aquarium.
