The last leg of our trip was spent in the colorful Norweigan coastal city of Bergen. We spent 4 days in the city, and loved every single one. Bergen is one of the prettiest, quaintest, cleanest and most walkable cities we’ve ever visited. And with the combination of mountains, water and a colorful city all meeting, it’s so unique! If you haven’t been, I highly recommend making a trip. Here’s everything we did in Bergen, Norway!

Day One.

On day one, we arrived at Bergen station and walked to our airbnb in the neighborhood at the foot of mount Fløyen. This neighborhood was so perfect and quaint, centrally located and about a 15 minute walk from the train station, even with all the hills. And let me tell you Bergen is not messing around with the hills.

The first day we headed down to the most famous part of Bergen, Bryggen to explore and get to know the city. It was very rainy. Side note: if you come to Bergen, pack your rain gear. This is the rainiest city in Europe.

Ironically, the rain didn’t slow us down at all. I don’t know how to describe it, but it feels so natural for it to be rainy in Bergen, and because the city is so charming and colorful, even under dark cover of clouds it still felt like a cheery place to be.

That first evening we explored Bryggen, there are lots of shops and restaurants right there on the waterfront, and it’s so fun to just walk and see everything.

We went through the Bergen fish market on our first night and had reindeer hotdogs and fish soup for dinner. The hotdogs and soup were delicious! Norwegians love hot dogs and they have a lot of different meat options for them. The Bergen fish market has covered seating under the tents, and it was so fun to be outside in the rain, tucked under a canopy eating hotdogs and watching people pass by. We also stopped by the waffle stand at the end of the market and got waffles, ice cream, and/or cocoa for dessert. Fun fact: Norwegians eat waffles for dessert, not for meals!
