Bergen Itinerary 3 Days

3 Days in Bergen - Perfect 72 Hours Guide

A witness of history, a victim of the fires, and a friend of the traders, Bergen is a small waterfront town that has seen so much, and yet, is content in its small wonders. Surrounded by not less than seven mountains, this tiny town boasts of spectacular view of and from the peaks, and an expansive waterfront that lights up dreamily at night, apart from museums and monuments that add to its charm. 3 days in Bergen are more than enough to explore the winding lanes, the ornate monuments, and the lush bergs, all on foot!

Start your day with a delicious breakfast at Colonialen Litteraturhuset. A cosy restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, as well as dinner, it is famous for the Scandinavian buns, sandwiches and pastries.

First stop is the Hanseatic Museum and Schøtstuene. A center exhibiting the life and works of the merchants, it also has some artefacts that make the collection unique and intriguing. Then head to the Bergenhus Fortress, a 13th century fortress that now exhibits the role of Bergen in the Second World War. A quick walk away is the Rosenkrantz Tower, which is also an ancient tower that offers spectacular views of the waters. Once the home of King Eric Magnusson, it today has all the antique items on display. Spend the afternoon at Bryggen.

Start the second day with an excursion. Being surrounded by seven mountains, take a hike up any of those and spend the day peacefully among the lush wilderness. Mount Ulriken is perfect for hiking. There is a cable car that takes you up this mountain, which is also the highest one in Bergen, so, you can carry a light picnic and some snacks, and watch the sweeping scenes of the town and the waters while sipping on hot coffee. Mount Fløyen is also another option. After a day full of hiking. Head to Bryggen in the evening to watch the reflecting lights in the waters, a dynamic picture out of a storybook. Enjoy a quiet dinner and retire for the day.

For breakfast, head to Godt Brød Fløyen, one of the best bakeries in town. Their Cinnamon Rolls are highly recommended. After breakfast, the first stop is the aquarium, Akvariet i Bergen.

Giving you details about a saddening history, it provides an interesting view all the same. Pay a visit to the Bergen Art Hall.
