How to Find the Best Bergen Hotels with Hotels.com

A pretty and well-preserved port gazing out into the North Sea, Bergen is one of the most attractive destinations in Norway. The harbourfront retains its picturesque clapboard houses and the town still has some of the imposing medieval buildings that remind visitors that this was once Norway's most important city. Bergen is a great base for hiking and the winter sports that are a Norwegian passion, or as a base for cruises around the spectacular fjords and islands that characterise the Norwegian coast. Online accommodation specialist Hotels.com has partnered with a great selection of Bergen hotels to provide the best value rooms for your stay, regardless of budget or location. Booking Bergen accommodation in advance with Hotels.com ensures a relaxed visit to this part of Norway.

What's Bergen Like?

The hub of Bergen activity is the 18th-century Bryggen harbourfront area, a UNESCO World Heritage site with colourful clapboard shops and houses. Many have now been converted into workshops and studios for artists and artisans, creating a lively, bohemian atmosphere in the area. Sightseeing highlights include Haakon's Hall, a robust 13th-century fortress, and the Mariakirken or St. Mary's Church, from the same era, housing an ornate medieval tryptych. Music lovers will want to make the short bus trip out to the house of composer Edvard at Troldhaugen, now a museum on the banks of Lake Nordås. Bergen is blessed with easy access to the mountains via a funicular up to the toboggan slopes of the Fløyen mountain and a cable-car up neighbouring Ulriken, with a network of hiking or ski trails.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Bergen

English is widely spoken in Bergen, and you should not have many language difficulties in restaurants. Eating out can be problematic for other reasons though, as prices for formal dining in Norway can be daunting. Follow the local example by seeking out more economical meals in small cafes and taverns. Bergen cuisine makes great use of local fish in typical dishes such as creamy fish soup and lutefisk, a gelatinous dried cod recipe. Jazz and indie music are popular in Bergen, and the area around the university has numerous cafes and venues staging live music. The fact that Bergen has vending machines for umbrellas gives an idea of what kind of weather to dress for. The Hotels.com site offers all the information you need to find your ideal Bergen hotels. Certified guest reviews combine with multiple photos, sample room layouts and maps of the main sights to give a clear picture of what to expect from Bergen accommodation.
