As you should may or may not know, I used to work as a Merchandise Hostess in the Norwegian Pavillion in Epcot, Disney World. The Pavillion was styled to resemble different areas in Norway, and the store where I worked was an perfect copy of these old buildings found in Bergen.

Side note: don’t miss my favourite Bergen tours during your visit!

Bryggen‘ (in English, the wharf) still stands there with its old wooden houses and tiny alleys, and is still being used for ships loading and docking. As it has been for hundreds of years. In 1979 the area was put on UNESCO’s World Heritage List and is an insanely popular tourist destination for Bergen.

Many visitors pick Bergen as their gateway to the fjords. Here’s how to get from Bergen to Flam (or Flåm, as we call it).

If you are arriving in Bergen by plane, here is exactly how to get from Bergen Airport to the city centre!

Have you been to Bergen? Did you visit Bryggen?

Want to go on a hike in Bergen? Then you’ll want to hike to Ulriken mountain, for some epic views of the city!
