Full description
Appreciate why many people consider Bergen to be the most beautiful city in Norway on a relaxing walking tour through the city. As well as receiving fascinating details about the city’s 950-year history, your local guide will provide a true insider's perspective on its inhabitants, known as the 'Bergenser'. Starting from the city center, be enchanted by the maritime charm of the harbor bay, Vågen. Then navigate through the city's narrow wooden lanes as you get to know the most important sights of Bergen. Walk past the fish market, the theatre, and the old fire station and hear how historical residents, such as Edvard Grieg and Henrik Ibsen, helped shaped Bergen. Continue to the Bryggen district to see its iconic colorful wooden houses. This World Heritage Site is popular with both locals and tourists, housing many lively cafes, restaurants, and bars. Here, learn about how 400 years ago dried cod was stored in Bryggen and exported to throughout Europe, making Bergen the most important trading metropolis in Scandinavia during that time. Discover what the Hanseatic League was, the influence it once had on trading, and how life for the visiting German merchants played out here.

Martin gave the perfect guided tour. He had a profound knowledge of Bergen past and present which he imparted to the group in a professional and clear manner. He also gave us an informed impression of Norway in general. Martin was able to answer every question whatever the topic relating to Bergen. I fully recommend this tour.

are so glad we did this tour with Martin! His knowledge of Bergen’s and Norway’s rich history (and quirky facts) made it a fantastic tour. Martin was really friendly, he also shared a local’s guide of what to do/where to eat. We tried a couple of his recommendations too and absolutely loved it! Definitely recommend!

Visite guidée très agréable : un parcours ni trop court ni trop long qui donne un très bon aperçu des points principaux de la ville et surtout un excellent guide, Martin, qui a su mêler informations historiques ou culturelles et anecdotes amusantes. On en a appris beaucoup sur Bergen mais aussi la Norvège et les norvégiens en général.
