The Bergen Fish Market with it’s abundance of fish and other seafood. A very popular object for photographers. Want to taste raw oysters? You’ll get the chance at the Fish Market in Bergen. Another very popular thing is to buy freshly boiled shrimps and eat by the waterfront next to the stands at the Fish Market or at Bryggen (next to the Fish Market).
Situated in the very heart of Bergen, next to the inner harbor in Bergen.
Please note that Bergen Fish Market is very very limited during the winter season, only indoor in the small market hall Mathallen. Closed outdoor for the season in 2017-18. Opening again in May 2018, we guess. Sorry about that.
Free admission to the outdoor fish market during the summer.

If you want to experience the genuine Bergen and its historic heritage, the Bergen Fish Market is not the right place to visit. Most of the visitors here are tourists and it is definitively the #1 tourist trap in Bergen today. Most of the products sold here can be bought much cheaper in regular stores. You will meet very few local people shopping here, not even working here. Just saying.
