The highlight of Bergen!
From Mt. Fløyen there’s a spectacular panoramic view of Bergen and its beautiful surrounding scenery of fjords and
mountains. Fløibanen is the only cable car of its kind in Scandinavia, and one of Norway’s most popular tourist attractions.
In case FlГёibanen is not included in your tour programme, there are numerous reasons to do so:
• The two funiculars climb the hillside, 26° at its
steepest, through an approximately 7-minute-long,
comfortable ride, taking you to the top of Mt. FlГёyen
(320m asl).
• Our spacious plateau by the upper station offers
every visitor, small and tall, a chance to relax and
admire the breathtaking view.
• Two funiculars, each with a capacity of 100
enthusiastic passengers, are in continuous and
daily operation from early morning until 23.00.
• Mt. Fløyen is a perfect starting point for hiking tours in
wonderful surroundings. Guided hiking tours are available
for both individuals and for groups.
• The eventful upper station area offers a multiple of
enjoyable facilities: Restaurant, cafГ©, kiosk, souvenir shop
and a playground for children.
• Fløibanen´s lower station is located only 150 meters
from the famous Fish Market. The area is easily
accessible to tour coaches.
New for the summer season 2014:
Experience traditional Norwegian Folk music!
Some of NorwayВґs finest folk musicians will be performing
concerts every week during the summer season. Concerts are
held at the restaurant, where you can also enjoy drinks and a
traditional Norwegian taster menu. Sample NorwayВґs best
culinary offerings! Concert tickets, drinks and food sold

HISTORY
Bergen was founded in 1070 by King Olav Kyrre. The town was
favourably situated in relation to shipping traffic and was for a
long time the country’s most important commercial, shipping and
industrial town. Moreover, Bergen became Europe’s significant
commercial and shipping town and for a while. During the
Middle Ages, Bergen was also the largest of all the towns in
the Nordic countries.
Bergen is the only town in the whole of Scandinavia that has
followed a classic European pattern of development. In the
twelfth century an economic breakthrough occurred in LГјbeck,
the first town on the Baltic to become a centre for international
commerce.
Later, LГјbeck came to influence circumstances in Bergen, which
had now become the natural geographical and economic centre
for the Norwegian maritime empire. Trade with the north,
importing grain and exporting fish, laid the foundation for growth
during the first centuries. From the fourteenth century and for
several centuries, the Hanseatic merchants dominated trade. The
Hanseatic merchants established one of their four most important
trading stations in Bergen, the “German Office” on the Wharf.
During the period from the last half of the nineteenth century
until the First World War, there was strong growth in trade and
industry resulting in an increase in population, from 17,000
inhabitants in 1855 to 103,500 inhabitants in 1920 (Bergen City).
It was not until the beginning of the 1830s that the population of
Oslo exceeded that of Bergen. Bergen has suffered conflagrations
PRODUCT MANUAL BERGEN AND THE REGION 2014/16

throughout its entire history. Buildings of the Church and State
were usually constructed in stone and could therefore be repaired
after damage by fire. The homes of the citizens, on the other
hand, were wooden buildings and therefore had to be rebuilt from
the foundations. The Hanseatic merchants were the ones most
observant of tradition in relation to architecture. When the Wharf
was rebuilt after the great fire of 1702 for example, only a few
small changes were made.
1.4 SEASONAL SPECIALITIES
It is easy to get to Bergen from the rest of Norway and from the
Continent all year round - whether you choose air, road, rail or
sea, connections are excellent. There are frequent direct flights,
also from major international hubs. Modern express boats go along
the coast all year round and into the fjords. Bergen is also the
turnaround port for the world-famous Hurtigruten. For extended
information about how to get to Bergen, see chapter 12.
BERGEN ALL YEAR ROUND
Visit Bergen in the spring, when the rhododendron and laburnum
are in flowers when red roofs gleam in the sunlight or old
cobblestones glister in the rain. Saunter up the tiny streets where
the Bergeners will plant a bush wherever they can find a bit of
soil. Visit Bergen in the summer when the land is lush in every
shade of green; when the fjords are busy with small boats, and the
city is alive and pulsating with visitors from all over the world.
Visit Bergen in the autumn and in the winter. Experience the
changing seasons - and the warmth of the Bergen hospitality. Visit
Bergen any time - there is always something to excite you, always
something happening. There is so much to see and experience all
year round, whether you like architecture and museums, shopping
or rubbing shoulders with the locals, or watching an exciting
football match. Eight minutes from the city centre and you can be
on the top of one of Bergen’s seven mountains. Admire the view
and enjoy the peace and quiet, high above the city.
THE BERGEN CARD
With the Bergen Card, you can travel free on Light
Rail and buses in the city and the region, free

Bergen is worth a visit during the winter. The long and dark nights
during the winter add a romantic and loving atmosphere to the
city. Bergen is an international city full of history and tradition,
a city with small-town charm and atmosphere.

passion at Voss, just one hour away from Bergen by car or train.

CITY BREAK IN BERGEN
4
Bergen will enchant you regardless of the season. Spring and
autumn each have their beautiful palette, summer is teeming
with joyous activities, and in winter you can combine your stay
with snow-filled adventure at a nearby ski resort. Year round you
can experience the Norway in a nutshellВ® excursion.
Set aside three days to explore the World Heritage City Bergen,
and we guarantee you unforgettable memories and experiences.
Bergen became a European City of Culture in year 2000.
There were many reasons why Bergen was chosen to be a
European City of Culture, and it is no coincidence that people
visit from the far reaches of the world to soak up the city’s
cultural life and important history. The city has fostered many
well-known celebrities: the world famous composer Edvard Grieg,
the international solo violinist Ole Bull, and composer Harald
Sæverud, to name but a few.
Renowned for its vibrant and contemporary design and music
scene, Bergen has helped cultivate acts and artists such as
Ralph Myers & the Jack Herren Band, Kings of Convenience,
RГёyksopp, Sondre Lerche and World Idol Kurt Nilsen, to name a
few. Bergen International Festival, the largest annual event in
Norway, has placed Bergen truly and well on the world music map.

exhibitions and concerts are prolific, shops and commerce even more so. The Fish Market’s delicacies lure everybody – and if you get tired of
streets and houses, you are just a short distance away from unspoiled scenery. 7 minutes from the city centre and you can be on top of one
of Bergen’s mountains. Admire the view and enjoy the peace and quiet, high above the city. Few places have such a combination: a city with
nature right on its doorstep.

Tel: +47 56 33 54 54/+47 917 35 095
fjell@museumvest.no - www.museumvest.no
Description: Fjell fortress was built by German occupation forces
in 1942–1945 to secure coastal approaches to Bergen, a major
submarine port for the German navy during WWII. The main
ordnance was one of the triple guns (283 mm) from the German
battle cruiser «Gneisenau» – code-named «Donner Felix». The rest
of the fortress was built to protect the triple gun. Most of the
600 m long trench system and some 30 bunkers with positions
for various weapons are intact and represent a unique military
heritage from WWII. From south to north Fjell fortress stretches
more than 4 km, which makes it the largest fortress built by
Germans in Norway during WWII. The fortress complex was part
of the Atlantikwall – the German line of defence stretching from
North Cape to the Bay of Biscay. Soviet POWs were exploited as
slave labour during the construction of the fortress. This was a
war crime in contradiction to the rules of Geneva Convention on
the treatment of POWs.

Most toll stations in Norway are automatic. This means that you
should not stop when passing. All vehicles without AutoPASS will
have their license plate photographed.
If you don’t have AutoPASS or a Visitors Payment contract an
invoice will be sent by mail to the owner of the car, at no extra
charge. This also applies for foreign vehicles.
You can also pay toll at the following petrol stations close to the
toll station. Payment must be made within three working days
after passing the toll point. Look for the sign: “Kr-service”.
AutoPASS is another way to pay toll in Norway. AutoPASS is an
electronic payment system, where you use an AutoPASS tag as the
means of payment. Foreign vehicles can also utilise AutoPASS,
and this arrangement is useful if you plan to stay in Norway for
more than two months. To get an AutoPASS tag you should:
• Sign an agreement with one of the Toll Road Operators in
Norway, and get a discount at many toll plazas.
• You pay a deposit of NOK 200 for the AutoPASS tag.
Each time you pass through a toll station the fee is deducted
from your account. When you leave Norway you can return the
AutoPASS tag by standard mail to the Toll Road Operator, at the
same time as you terminate your agreement. You will then receive
your deposit back and any remainder on your account.

BERGEN – EASY TO GET TO
Bergen is accessible from all over the world. You can fly to Bergen
direct from more than 30 central destinations in Europe. From
the biggest transport hubs, such as Amsterdam, Copenhagen,
Frankfurt, London, Helsinki, Tokyo, Stockholm, Reykjavik and Oslo,
you only need to change planes once to get here from other more
distant cities. You can also fly direct to most Norwegians cities
from Bergen. There are also direct ferries from Denmark (daily,
all year around service). Modern express bus routes in nearly every
direction, and Bergen is the turn-around port for the world-famous
Hurtigruten – Norwegian Coastal Voyage to ”The land of the
Midtnight Sun”. The spectacular train journey between Oslo and
Bergen should not be missed!
THE WORLD FAMOUS NORWEGIAN FJORDS
The word ”fjord” is used many places in the world, but where
do you find the fjords which really impress and delight visitors?
In Norway we have the Oslo fjord, the Trondheimsfjord, the Byfjord
in Stavanger, and the Byfjord in Bergen. However, it is in the
districts of Western Norway you find the fjords that attract so
many tourists. And people live there!
