Visits during the Easter


Written by Les Symonds (tourist)

It was quite a shock to find that the town virtually closes down for the five days of Easter. We had great difficulty getting to see any of the museums and galleries, the Bergen guide that’s available everywhere didn’t mention the fact that Easter closures were so extensive. We had at least expected to find the shops open on the Saturday, but virtually the whole of the city centre was closed, just a few of the shops in the Bryggen were open. We went on the Norway in a Nutshell trip, and this was the highlight of the five days that we stayed in Bergen, but whilst we enjoyed this one day so much, the rest of the five day trip was spoilt by there being so little to do. We spent many hours wandering around the narrow streets of the old town, and were impressed by the architecture of the old wooden houses, and thank goodness that the Floyen funicular railway was open.

I’d come to Norway again, but never at Easter – Les.
