A Walk Through Bergen, Norway

July 17, 2013

Bergen, a pretty little city on the west coast of Norway, averages over 200 rainy days per year. No surprise, it was raining when we arrived and raining harder the next morning when we left.

It is also a popular destination for the cruise ship crowd that fills the harbor front fish market and the shops of the Hanseatic Quarter, the old German neighborhood. Nonetheless, the quaint streets of the old town and lively square of the new town are worth an afternoon stroll between rain showers.

Using the Rick Steves town walk, we started at the fortress near where the cruise ships dock and ended the walk at the little lake at the end of the park.
