How to Spend 1 Day in Bergen

How to Spend 1 Day in Bergen

Recognizable by its colorful wooden buildings reflected in harbor water, Bergen is one of the prettiest cities in Europe, and filled with more attractions than its compactness might suggest. The city’s small size means you can see a lot in a single day, from historic landmarks to mountain views. Here are some options.

Morning: Take in the Sights

Bergen is a walkable city, making an on-foot tour an enjoyable way to see the sights. Most walking (and Segway) tours cover the main landmarks, such as St. Mary's Church, Vagen harbor, and the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Bryggen quarter. For more flexibility, opt for a private tour that allows you to customize your itinerary and explore at your own pace. Another option is a hop-on hop-off bus tour: book online and redeem the ticket voucher at any of the tour stops, then get on and off the bus route as you wish.

Afternoon: Pedal Around the City

For lunch, head for one of Norway’s best-known outdoor markets, the fish market, which has been in business since the 13th century. As well as vendors selling seafood, fruit, and vegetables outside, you’ll find some excellent restaurants in the newer indoor section. Afterward, work off the meal by renting a bicycle and traversing Bergen like a local, cycling through neighborhoods and taking in the scenery. Staff at bike shops can typically suggest routes tailored to your ability and interests.

Night: Segway Under the Stars

After savoring a dinner of freshly caught seafood at one of the restaurants clustered around the harbor, get ready for one last sightseeing adventure. See Bergen in a whole new way by zipping through its historic streets on a Segway. After winding through the wharf and along cobblestone alleys—at their most peaceful after dark—head up Mount Floyen. Enjoy the view, then return to the city and toast your trip with a drink in one of the harborside bars.
