The captain’s guide
Bergen is vibrant and Norway’s most engaging city, and here is also much of the development of Norwegian fishing companies and shipping, and a diversity of living culture. Did you know that around 80% of Norwegian economic values are created in Western Norway?
The city was voted one of the best cities in Europe in 2017 by Condé Nast Traveler’s readers (several hundreds of thousands of votes!), which proves just how attractive and exciting this city between 7 mountains really is.
But shy away from Bryggen and instead experience Bergen’s vibrant multicultural district, Møhlenpris. Aim for the red St. John’s Church, which rains with its spire over the Torgallmenningen, then you continue on from there over the hill to the left and down towards the Puddefjord, about 10 minutes walk from the center.
Food and drinks
A coffee at Nobel Bopen (see map) is always a good choice. Here you find the sandy beach Møhlen and you should visit Vil Vite (Science Center) with challenges for all ages. Møllaren Kafe (see map) is here, and the walk over the river to Damsgård district on the west side of river Pudden with newly opened district cafe – Damsgaard Restaurant (see map). Or you can choose to eat at the restaurant Kranen (see map), which is at the heart of the Puddefjord.
