Bergen Norway Feb 08, 2017
On the west coast of Norway, Bergen is a pretty port and town.I stayed at the Thon Bristol Hotel in city centre. Plenty to see in Bergen but also a good base for trips off.-- There is a funicular up Mount Floibanan taking 7 minutes. The bottom station is 150m from the wharf. At the top there is a cafe and bar, and numerous walks.--Bryggen is a parade of lovely colourful wooden buildings,near the waterfront, there are narrow alleyways.---Bergenhus castle just past the Bryggen , the castle contains building from the 1240s -- I took the train from Bergen rail station to Myrdal to catch the the train to Flam, this is an amazing trip to Flam. The train stops halfway to view the huge waterfall,where you can leave the train for a minute or two[ maybe more ] There is a good cafe on Myrdal staion while you wait for the train.This trip not to be missed.The journey from Myrdal to Flam takes one hour.

Nice town, nice people Sep 12, 2014
We were crusing Norway on the Prinsendam and made our first port of call in the nice city of Bergan. We didnt find an excursion we wanted from the ship or private contractors. Fortunely we made a friend on that would guide us for free. That lady arranged a meeting at an organic resturant and coffee shop.

Getting off the ship we saw long lines of about 40 people each with a leader holding up a banner. They were walking tours from the ship (about $40 USD each) of Bergen. We know how to walk arround in a foreign city and we had a free guide. So our expensive membership with has paid for itself in one useage.

We walked a good ways on a major street and couldnt find the street leading to where we would meet. We asked 2 men that spoke zero english and showed them on paper the name and address of the meeting place. They discussed in Norway talk together for a short while then pointed to me. They pointed down the main street then pointed to the right and said, "McDonalds". Then they pointed to me and then pointed to the left. I said thanks and we continued to walk. After a while we found a McDonalds on the right and a street directly to the left. We walked 5 blocks up a steep hill and found the meeting shop and our nice female guide. She spoke OK english and we had fun chatting and drinking cappuccino. She was highly educated and we had so much fun chatting we forgot about the guide. It was so interesting speaking with a lady from a culture so different from ours.

We were in outside seating and didnt really notice a nice semi large white structure two houses away. Then a line of about 40 people with a leader holding up a banner came up and stopped at the white building. Apparently they only let a few people in the white building at a time so most were just standing and waiting. We continued chatting with our guide and we enjoyed that. Then before many in line got inside, another line of 40 with a leader with banner lined up behind the first line all in single file. Shortly another 40 with leader took their place in the single file line. We continued our interesting chat and paid the people in line little attention. Finally our time was running short because our guide had another we got up to let her guide us before she had to leave. Then we saw a single file line of people almost reaching the main street some five blocks away, with an occasional leader with a bannor. Well, all those people paid good money to see that white building that we accidently found.

We had about an hour left with our guide and she did good showing us around...but our main enjoyment was the longer pleasant chat.

Once again my photos are poor because of the rain but I have to show you something.

Bergen by foot Mar 20, 2010
The best way to discover Bergen is by foot despite there's a free shuttle bus running on weekdays. However it's recommendable taking the cable car for going up to Mt Floyen.

Bergen is quite expensive but lovely!…

PepeMalagaSpain says:
Siempre pense que los paises escandinavos eran un lugar de belleza extraordinaria pero inhospita. Al posar los ojos en estos paisajes urbanos, tan humanizados, el asombro me deja mudo. Que grande es la Tierra. Cuanta belleza oculta contiene. Stendhal (quien lo puede discutir) llevaba razon: es como para perder la cabeza pensando lo que no se puede abarcar.
