Walking Tour in Bergen of the Past and Present

Explore Bergen past and present with a certified fluent English-speaking guide.

This small-group walking tour combines history, culture and everyday life as we walk through both the most famous attractions of Bergen and the off-the-beaten path parts of the city. We will discuss not just the fascinating history of Bergen, but also what it's like to live in Bergen today - including everyday life, housing, work, education and anything you wish to ask. We'll explore the issues currently facing Bergen today, but also what makes Bergen a special place to live.

We will walk through historical locations past picturesque houses, churches, hills and parks. You'll get an idea of museums, restaurants and shops that you can explore on your own.

With this walking tour, you'll get a feel not just for Bergen's history and culture, but also the 'real Bergen'. Join Emma, your local guide, on this unique and special walk through the best city in Norway!
