Bergen, Norway

Surrounded by seven hills and an equal number of fjords, Bergen, Norway, is a beguiling city. As Norway’s second biggest city and gateway to the fjords, Bergen is understandably high up on most visitors’ bucket list. But the city is far more than just a good place to stay on your way to the fjords: It oozes history around every corner and packs in some of the country’s best restaurants and attractions.

During the early Middle Ages, Bergen was an important seaport and a member of the Hanseatic League, as well as Norway's capital – a heritage that can still be glimpsed in the beautifully preserved wooden buildings of Bryggen, now protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Chocolate-box, clapperboard houses creep up the hillsides, ferries flit around the fjords, and a cluster of excellent art museums provide a welcome detour, and not only in case Bergen's notoriously fickle weather sets in.

Meanwhile, a large student population ensures the city has a buzzy bar scene and nightlife, and easy access to nature means you are minutes away from complete tranquility. Whether you are just interested in a stroll around a lake or an all-day hike away from the city, Bergen’s natural beauty will mesmerize you.
