You can read the guidebooks for all the usual tourist-y things to do, but one place I found very interesting and a bit off the beaten path was the Leprosy Museum. It is within walking distance of the Bryggen.

Everyone raves about the fish market but I was disappointed in it--then again, I live in Maine, so I guess fish markets aren't all that unusual for me!

If you can find the Bulgarian Restaurant (that is what it was called)--tucked away on a side street, not far from the Bryggen (sorry, I didn't save the exact address) consider going there for dinner. We had a great meal and it was one of our best bargains on our whole trip--500 kr for 2, including a bottle of wine. And the food was delicious! LHN

Check out http://www.visitbergen.com/

As a general rule, the weather decides what you should do. If weather is fine or not too rainy and windy, take the funicular to Floyen and enjoy the views, stroll around the cosy centre, drop by a few museums (many close early in the afternoon). The city-centre is quite compact, and attractions are seldom far away. Eating is no problems, the city is full of good places.

You shouldn't miss the Hanseatic (my spelling may be off) Museum on the waterfront in Bergen. It is pretty touristy but worth your time. There are two cathedrals right in that area that are interesting also.

You will be docking right in the touristy part of Bergen. The

Hansiatic (my spelling is probably not correct) Museum is there and you should not miss that. There are guided tours in English. There are lots of restaurants in the area, also.

Be sure to spend some time just walking - there is a beautiful park very near the pier area.

Enjoy your time there!
