Start with a guided walk through old parts of Bergen. Make your way past the University Library and Botanical Gardens. See Grieg Hall, built in the shape of a grand piano and the park where many of the city’s art museums are located. Cross Bergen’s main square, Torgalmenningen, with the Seamen’s statue. Soon after, you'll pass the Fish Market on your way to Bryggen Hanseatic Quarters. This is lively area with artists, shops and a great variety of restaurants and pubs. Before reaching Bergen’s oldest street, Øvregaten Street, you'll pass by St. Mary’s church, one of the outstanding Romanesque churches in the country.
Bergen has seven mountains and on this tour you’ll take the funicular to the top of Mt. Floien, 1,000 feet above the city. The ride takes about five minutes and travels at a 26 degree incline, stopping for commuters along the way. At the summit, be prepared for magnificent views of the city, harbor, and countryside, weather permitting. There’ll be time for shopping or a short walk on one of the forest trails before you return to the city center by funicular and heading back to your ship.
