Walking Tour in Bergen of the Past and Present

Walking Tour in Bergen of the Past and Present

We meet by Håkons Hall inside the Bergen Fortress. Instructions will be sent to you after your booking is confirmed by SMS and email. NOTE - we walk up-hill on cobblestone. This tour requires a moderate fitness. If you don't think you'll be able to walk up-hill, I recommend booking our private tour. 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.

Talking Statues Walking Tour in Bergen

Talking Statues Walking Tour in Bergen

I am a certified guide who planned for you an alternative walking tour to experience Bergen. I selected more than 10 statues in the city centre that have an interesting story, an anecdote, a secret to tell and share. You'll therefore meet composers, vikings, poets, a Roman god, a king, sailors... As you get familiar with Bergen foundation, the development of the city, its love for music, the theatre, the Norwegian romantic nationalism, Norwegian indipendence, the second world War occupation and other historical events that made this city protagonist in Norwegian history, Bergen will eventually emerge as charming and colorful mosaic. Starting point at the public library (once you arrive, look for a man with the red umbrella... That's me!) we walk past the city lake, Festplassen, the city park, we then head towards the theatre and down to torgalmenningen. The good bye is in holbergsplass, opposite to the fishmarket. French or Italian upon request. Bring an umbrella ;)

Dark Stories of the Past: Bergen by Night

Dark Stories of the Past: Bergen by Night

Bergen was founded in 1070 as Scandinavia's first commercial city. The merchants lived on a diet of beer and were known for getting into fights. In fact, in the 1600s Bergen had a crime rate comparable to New York City during prohibition. Sex work was prevalent in Bergen from the beginning of the city until the early 20th century. Their stories reveal the struggles these women went through. Not to mention the witch trials that took place in Scandinavia throughout the 16th and 17th centuries; Bergen had some famous witch burnings too. What was it really like here in the old merchant days? We'll walk through the old sailors neighbourhood and pass old cemeteries, witch burning sites, the famous hanging site, the brothels, the prisons and finish in front of Bryggen. While Norwegians don't have many ghost stories, we will pass a couple spots believed to be haunted. This tour isn't be theatrical or scary. Rather, it's a tour full of stories that you won't hear on our daytime tours!
