Bergen Fortress or Berngenhus Festning to give it its local name is a park full of historic remains at the head of Bergen Harbour. It is now set in well manicured grounds with cannons and defensive walls circling the park. For 40kr you can visit the two main buildings in the grounds. The Rosenkrantz Tower has parts which date back to 1270 when it was Bergen Castle. From the top you get a great view across the harbour and the neighbouring Haakon's Hall. This hall was build for King Haakon in the 13th C and even today is used for the occasional royal event. The hall has a soaring wooden roof and an undercroft you can visit.
