A walking tour along the Wharf including the Funicular


This is a tour of the highlights in Bergen. You will go for a walk at the Wharf, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The ancient gables and the narrow alleyways will make you feel like stepping back in time to the era when the Hanseatic merchants dominated Bergen's trade. You will hear interesting stories about the stock fish trade, daily life in the Middle ages, and about the Wharf as a secret hide-out during World War II. At your request this tour can include a visit to Mount Fløien, which is accessible with an unnervingly steep and quite thrilling funicular. An exciting 6-7 minutes ride takes you up to the top of the mountain for a magnificent panorama-view over the city and the surroundings.
