Bergen is located on the west coast of Norway, making it a cenuturies old trading post and a World Heritage Site. The harbour of Bryggen is one of the most charming in Europe, hence its UNESCO listing.
Bergen is often deemed the Gateway to the Fjords; a well-earned moniker, given that the city is sandwiched between Hardangerfjord and Sognefjord. Bergen is often the first port of call for Fjord cruises. Bergen is also often called 'The City of Seven Mountains', although it's technnically surrounded by nine. Mount Floyen provides some dramatic drives for those hiring a car in Bergen.
Bergen is one of the most loved cities in Norway and it's easy to see why, with its endless list of attractions. Mount Floyen and Mount Ulriken provided a stunning natural backdrop to the charismatic Bryggen harbour. The age-old harbour is nicely supported by some apt institutions such as the Hanseatic Museum. For a touch of high culture, visit the Bergen Art Museum and see some of the finest Nordic masterpieces.
Landmarks like the Fantoft Stave Church and the Rosencrantz Tower help to give Bergen its unique charm. If you're hiring a car in Bergen, take the wonderful drive to Hardanger Fjord - there are some sublime scenic routes in Norway.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
