The City of Wood
Your first glimpse of this quaint town will be of the old Hanseatic Wharf, lined with narrow peak-roofed buildings in various colors.
Many old wooden houses survive here, making an exploration of the narrow lanes a worthwhile pursuit.
A funicular will take you from the city center to the top of Mt. Floyen, for an expansive view of the city below, and the surrounding mountains and fjords. If you are feeling energetic you can walk back down, enjoying the clear air and delights of nature, all the way to the bustle of the fish market, with its large selection of the freshest of seafood.Download An Explorer Guide +
