Getting in

The most convenient way to get to Bergen is by plane. Bergen Flesland airport (BGO) is located approximately 20km south from the city centre. KLM operates direct flights from Amsterdam, Lufthansa from Frankfurt, and SAS from Copenhagen. A low-cost airline Norwegian operates flights to UK and many more European countries.

There is an express bus called Flybussen that goes directly from the airport terminal to the city center. Taxis are rather expensive, and it makes little sense to use them if you want to go directly downtown.

About Bergen and Western Norway

Quoting/paraphrasing Wikipedia: Bergen (Norwegian pronunciation: [‘bærɡən]) is the second largest city in Norway and the administrative centre of Hordaland county. Bergen is located on the south-western coast of Norway. It is an important cultural hub in its region, recognized as the unofficial capital of Western Norway and sometimes also referred to as the Atlantic coast capital of Norway. Bergen’s inter-municipal harbour, Port of Bergen, is by far Norway’s largest and one of Europe’s largest ports. The city was one of nine European cities honoured with the title of European Capital of Culture in the Millennium year.

Things to see in Western Norway

  • Flåmsbana – an old railway line that goes from Myrdal to Flåm. This takes only 20km, but the elevation difference is almost 900m, making it the steepest standard gauge railway in Europe. Spectacular views.
  • Norway in a Nutshell – an all-in-one package: train from Bergen to Voss, then to Myrdal, then Flåmsbana and a cruise across Aurlandfjord back to Bergen. Needs to be booked in advance.
