Bergen is the second-largest city in Norway and the most popular getaway to West Norway fjords. It is also known as the city between the seven mountains. This Norwegian city is a typical wooden style town with a compact city centre and the Bryggen Wharf, composed of charming houses in different colours.
Public transport network
The public transportation in Bergen includes electric tram and trolleybus. Bergen owns the only functional trolleybus system in the whole country.
The extensive bus network connects Bergen with the nearby cities. Among the most popular transportation options in the town are Floibanen (funicular from the city to Mount Floyen) and Ulriksbanen (tramway from the city to Mount Ulriken).
It is not recommended to rent a car for getting around the city due to the many narrow streets. However, it is an excellent opportunity to explore the nearby fjords, villages, and countryside. Expect a slow ride, as the roads are narrow and pass through rural areas. For trips to the mountains, avoid the winter period when roads are closed on short notice.
Bergen taxi service is safe and expensive. Many tourists prefer to use public transportation to travel around the city. In case you need to take a taxi, always look for metered Bergen taxis.
The central train station is the ending point of the 496 kilometres long railway from Oslo, managed by Norwegian State Railways. The second railway station in Bergen is Arna, with connections to the central train station every 30 minutes.
