In this Bergen guide, we define the Fish Market as the absolute center of Bergen. Bergen center area covers parts of Sandviken (Ladegaarden) in north, Nygaardshoyden in west, Nygaardstangen in south and Mount Floyen in east. At Nygaardshoyden you’ll find the University of Bergen. At the Nygaardstangen area you’ll find Norwegian State Railways, including one of the cargo terminals in Bergen.
Most of the hotels in Bergen are in walking distance to the fish market. By walking distance we mean a distance where people in an average good condition can walk in 10-15 minutes.
