On this introduction to lovely Bergen you will board a motor coach to sightsee through downtown Bergen with its old wooden Hanseatic pier, Bryggen, the medieval King Håkon’s Hall, erected during the reign of King Håkon Håkonsson, the Rosenkrantz Tower, St. Mary’s Church, built around 1170, and one of the finest examples of Romanesque architecture in Norway, the peninsula Nordnes, Bergen Theater (Den National Scene), and Grieghallen, the modern concert hall named after Norway’s great composer, Edvard Grieg. Your tour will continue over to Kalfaret, the noble residential area of Bergen, and on to the main attraction of the day - Ulriken Mountain. You will be taken by cable car to the highest of Bergen’s famous "Seven Mountains," Ulriken, to spectacular scenery and mountain terrain 2,100 feet above the city streets. From the summit, at the Sky:skraperen you will be introduced to one of the local specialties while you enjoy magnificent views of Bergen and the surrounding area - the sea, the islands, fjords, and mountains, before returning back to the lower station to board your motor coach for a short trip back to the pier.
Please note: People can stay on the motor coach if walking becomes too strenuous during the tour. There is a ramp and lift at the Ulriken cable car.
