    Luxury Cruise Ship Watching, Bergen Harbor

    by imeley Updated Mar 11, 2013

    Favorite thing: This is the sight of Bergen Harbor in summertime (photo was taken July 2012). In the summer months of June, July and August every year one can observe Luxury cruise liner docked at Skolten, Vågen Harbor. Various ships of sizes and catamarans (domestic ferry) can be seen. In winter months of December, January and February, the Harbor is almost empty. Bergen Harbor in other words, is energetic and lively in summer and idle and unoccupied in winter. If you hate snow, cold weather and frozen body of waters, better visit on summer!

    The Dragon Boat Festival Parade

    by yooperprof Updated Apr 3, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Reds

    Favorite thing: Bergenites celebrate midsummer with Dragon Boat Races in the beautiful harbor. These are run between fancifully dressed teams who row ships which are in the shape of dragons. On opening night of the festival there is an elaborate and good-natured parade which allows normally restrained Norwegians to let their hair down. So to speak.

    Cyberhouse internet cafe in Bergen

    Favorite thing: You can log on the net from these places:

    Banko Rotto
    Ordinary stylish cafe right in the middle of town. Computers are at the back. They're accesable whenever Banco Rotto is open except saturdays.

    BT-hjørnet
    behind 'Radison SAS Hotel Norge', Vaskerelven 20-something. Prices from 15 NOK (price from 16/10/2000)

    Cyber House
    Vetrlidsallmenningen (Near the funiclar to Fløyen). Cyberhouse is on the picture. Homepage: www.cyberhouse.no

    Accezzo
    ground floor of Galleriet Price: 15,- NOK for 15 min. (For 25,- you will get a coffee or a smal coce as well). Homepage: www.accezzo.no

    Dataport (I think)
    Pass SAS Hotel Norge on the left side when you're walking from fisketorget. Just after you've past 'akademiske kvarter'. It's on your right.

    View of the City from inside the Grieghallen

    Favorite thing: It was the Bergen Festival which brought me to Norway's second largest city. I was very impressed with the variety and quality of the numerous cultural events on hand. I would strongly recommend anyone interested in visiting Bergen to time your trip to coincide with the Festival - it's a good time to see the place at its best.

    Favorite thing: PT 2 Flǻm
    Stay a night. During the day Flǻm is just a place on the nutshell tour where people transfer from train to boat or vice versa. In the evening it is a real place.

    Fondest memory: Views from the railway which plunges from the snow to the sea.
