Vågen, 5003 Bergen, Norway
Interesting old medieval fortress and hall situated in central Bergen. Both the fortress and hall have interesting if not beautiful interiors. There are displays explaining the extensive history of the buildings and the members of the Norwegian Royal family that occupied them.
A place near the docs and old houses that represent Bergen. It is a nice walk, but it doesn't have this wow effect. It is old and looks nice. I think that it is treated as a park, more than an attraction. We saw many locals sitting under the trees chilling. Entrance to the park is free.
Lots of history. This is a great way to spend a few hours in Bergen. I've been here quite a few times and always manage to find an architectural element that I missed previously. The blend if stone and brick work is especially fascinating. This place is a must see.
Well worth the hike to the top,we went on foot out of the port and into the centre of town, veiws from the top almost 360 degrees, stopped at a great little on street cafe, good filtered coffee served in bone china cups and saucers, free refills, worth the visit
It's a nice fortress close to the center, that has no entry fee, only during the day some parts of it are open for visitors, so check these hours before. During my visit one part of it was accessible only after a 3km walk but it was worth the view from higher ground.
