Bergen – World Heritage City and the Gateway to the Fjords of Norway
Bergen is Norway’s second largest city, with the facilities of a large city, and the charm and atmosphere of a small city, with its wooden houses and narrow cobbled streets. Bryggen is the old trading wharf that still looks the same as it did when the town was in its infancy. Bryggen is the face of Bergen. But more than that – Bryggen is a port of our collective cultural heritage and has its place on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Therefore, Bergen too is classified a World Heritage City. Bergen is known as the city of the seven mountains. These mountains surround the city and offer hiking opportunities in the varied terrain. The most popular mountains are Mount Fløyen which is accessible with Fløibanen Funicular right from the city center or Mount Ulriken which is the highest mountain and can be reached by a cable car.
Bergen is surrounded by one of the world’s greatest tourist attractions, the Norwegian fjords. The city is the Gateway to these natural masterpieces, which continue to amaze the Norwegian people, let alone our international visitors. The Norwegian fjords have now been included on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
