City of Seven Mountains
A city famed for its underground music scene, Bergen also serves as the gateway to the fjords of Norway's western coastline. Once a major merchant colony of the powerful Hanseatic League (a medieval trade federation), the city prospered by linking continental Europe with the northern parts of Scandinavia. Although relics of Bergen's Hanseatic past remain in and around the city's World Heritage-listed harbor, the city now represents one of the country's most modern centers, thriving largely because of its tourism and offshore petroleum industries. Often called the "City of the Seven Mountains," Bergen provides a comfortable urban base for day trips into the surrounding countryside, which is known for its rugged natural scenery and quaint villages. Take a peek at our online itinerary creator: Bergen and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
