Add To Plan

Your motor coach transfer from the pier to Vågsbunnen takes you past some of Bergen's landmarks, including the medieval King Håkon's Hall, Rosenkrantz Tower and St. Mary's Church. Built around 1170, the church is one of Norway's finest examples of Romanesque architecture.

After about 15 minutes, arrive in Vågsbunnen and join a guided walk for an intimate introduction to this interesting part of the city. Located between the fish market and the cathedral, Vågsbunnen has atmospheric streets that wind their way through centuries past. Later, you'll re-board your motor coach, continuing your Bergen sightseeing as you pass the Bergen Theater and Grieghallen, the modern concert hall named after Norway's famed composer Edvard Grieg. Next, venture to the peninsula of Nordnes and travel past the Aquarium of Bergen before reaching the Damsgård country estate, situated on the other side of the Puddefjord.

Styled in the tradition of European palaces, the mansion and its grounds are splendid in their design. The gardens have been re-created to look as they might have in the late 1700s, complete with their formal Baroque plan accented by ponds and sculptures. To stay true to the garden's history, the plants here are the types grown in Bergen during the late 18th century.

After your guided exploration of the grand residence draws to a close, enjoy the 25-minute return journey to the pier.

Please note: As this excursion involves extensive walking on cobblestone surfaces and uneven terrain, it is not recommended for guests with walking difficulties. It is recommended that guests dress in warm, layered clothing and wear flat, comfortable walking shoes. Guests should also bring raingear in case of inclement weather. The order of sights visited may vary.
