    Jarlens Vaskoteque: Doing Laundry

    by ideabuzz Written Dec 30, 2007
    Laundry Sign

    If you are traveling light you may need to do laundry. This place is on a side street North east of the Fish Market and you will have to ask a local how to find it.

    You just do you laundry and the attendant will help make sure the machine gets started and you have soap. The machines do not take coins, just pay the man.

    Also note the spin cycle is done by a separate machine so don't panic when the cycle ends and your clothes are sopping wet.

    What to pay: Prices are reasonable and soap is included.

    Sweaterman: Best Sweater Deal

    by ideabuzz Updated Dec 23, 2007

    The Sweaterman sells sweaters from a stall at the fish market. These are high quality sweaters at a really good price made right in Bergen.

    What to buy: My sweater has a partial zip front with a fleecy collar to keep the wool away from your neck. The bottom and cuffs have elastic to keep the cold from sneaking in. I am quite tall and the sleeves are more than comfy in length which is hard to find.

    What to pay: 750 NOK ($135) is about average here and you get about $35 back at the airport for taxes. Prices go to around 1200 NOK on average. Anything more would be for the latest Dale of Norway designs or something handmade.

    Russian Dolls

    by AnnS Updated Oct 28, 2006
    Russian 'Troll' Dolls from Bergen

    It's hard to find reasonably priced souvenirs in Bergen but I did manage to find something small and unusual... a tiny set of 'troll' Russian dolls. The shop was full of dolls of all sizes, from the tiny ones I bought to some over a foot tall, containing 24 dolls, for £250! They were all wonderfully decorated and fun to look at.

    The lady who owned the shop was Russian and very friendly, telling me lots of interesting things about life in Norway.

    Unfortunately, I didn't take a note of the shop's name but it's situated at the end of Strandkaien, close to where the large catamarans leave for Stavanger.

    Bergens Aquavit

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the local Bergen Aquavit.
    The Aquavit is the traditional spirit of Scandinavia, if you want to buy it, wait until you get to the airport or the ferry, it will be much cheaper there as tax free.

    What to buy: Aquavit

    What kind of souvenir?

    by daarth Written Jan 15, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Norwegian Troll

    What to buy: I often get the question, what type of souvenir is typical for Norway?
    Several things would be typical, depending on what you like. I would say the most typical is probably a troll figure. You can get them in all sizes and in all price ranges from the little plastic one to the hand-carved one in wood. Another typical craft is tinwear. They are not cheap, but you can get a nice Viking boat in tin.

    at the Bryggen water front: Souvenirs

    by Igraine Updated Oct 27, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shops on Bryggen

    All the buildings at the Bryggen water front contain souvenir shops.

    What to buy: Sweaters, Trolls, tin. Other asorted touristy things. Dont forget the postcards for all your VT friends and family.

    I notice that some of the shops had a worldwide mailservice. If you do find that sweater, jacket or down covers you always looked for you can mail it home in stead of trying to put it in your already overflowing suitcase.

    What to pay: Norway is expensive so these shops are too if you want something decent
