This is the fifth post in the Cruise of Copenhagen and the Norwegian Fjords series. Other posts in this series include Restaurant Karla Copenhagen, Restaurant Relae, and Pulpit Rock, Stavanger, Norway
Bergen is Norway’s second largest city and was the second stop of our cruise.
Bergen’s most famous landmark is Bryggen, a series of colorful Hanseatic commercial buildings lining the waterfront. Bryggen was dubbed a UNESCO world heritage site in 1979. Nowadays, those buildings house various little gift shops and restaurants where you can browse to your heart’s content.
Bergen is also a great place to stay if you want to take day trips to see the fjords. Of course, since we came on a cruise ship and arrived VIA the fjord, we spent our time exploring the city.
It was an unusually nice day out (apparently it’s often cloudy or cold in this region).
