  Port Map

Bergen Havn is Norway's second biggest port city (after country's capital Oslo) and gateway to the Norwegian Fjords. Located along Byfjord, this is a charming old trading town surrounded by forested peaks and centred around the bustling harbour with thriving fishing industry. City's population is around 280,000.Bergen (Norway) cruise port

Bergen is the southern turnaround port of the Hurtigruten "Express Route" (Norwegian Coastal Express). This is a regularly scheduled ferry and cruise itinerary in Norway, between Bergen and Kirkenes (the route's northern turnaround port).Bergen (Norway) cruise port

Bergen's old waterfront is lined with coloured buildings and warehouses, housing boutiques, restaurants and art galleries. Here travelers will also see the Fish Market at Torget displaying the catch of today.

The history of Bergen dates back to the early 11th century when Olav Kyrre founded a settlement and royal residence here. Bergen replaced Trondheim as capital of Norway in 1240, and the city prospered under the guidance of Hanseatic League. Very soon, these German merchants controlled all trade in Norway and remained in Bergen for centuries until 1764.

Today, much of city's architecture reflects the lifestyle of Hanseatic merchants, who resided in tiny row houses close to the harbour. Bryggen is a collection of timbered Hanseatic houses from the 14th-16th century, restored and designated by UNESCO as a Heritage Site. Hanseatisk Museum re-creates living quarters of a merchant and his staff. King Haakon's Hall was built in the 13th Century, Rosenkranz Tower and Mariakirken in the 12th century. Theta Museum honours local Nazi resitance group from WW2.

Tourists can enjoy shopping or travel up Floibanen funicular railway for views over Bergen city and the surrounding area. Outside the town a must-see is the Fantoft Stave Church (1050) and Troldhaugen beside Norgas Lake - home of Edvard Grieg and now a park and a museum. On the Nordnes Peninsula is Old Bergen Museum, open air collection of 18th-19th century houses.


Highlights: Bryggen Hanseatic Houses, Stave Church, Edvard Grieg Home

Bergen cruise terminal

Most cruise ships in Bergen Havn dock at the Skolten cruise port (Vagen Harbor). From here it is a 5-min walking distance (along the waterfront) to the Bryggen (aka Tyskebryggen) docking area.Bergen Port (Skolten cruise ship terminal)

Larger cruise ships often dock at Dokken port, located to the west of the Fish Market (large outdoor market selling seafood, fruits and vegetables). Complimentary shuttle buses operate from Dokken Port to the city center (walking distance is around 20 min).Bergen Port (Dokken cruise ship terminal)
