Bergen The Essential
Highly recommended
Nicknamed the "city of wood" or "gateway to the fjords", Bergen, Norway's second largest city, occupies a prime position on the magnificent west coast, close to fabulous natural sites. This lively, cosmopolitan city with a rich Hanseatic League past is protected by a string of islands to the west and mountains to the east. Bryggen, the heart of the medieval city, is famous for its old wooden Hanseatic merchants' houses.
