There's more to Norway than fjords. Bergen is a city of natural beauty and colorful history. Bergen is a walker's gem - small enough to get around easily on foot, large enough to be interesting and old enough to be able to transport you to other eras. It also helps from the scenic perspective when such a place is built around a harbour at the foot of a mountain. As the hometown of Edvard Grieg, arguably the world's greatest Romantic period composer, Norway's second city attracts visitors to its numerous music and cultural events each summer but it's the kind of place where just walking the streets is pure joy. Having a destination or 'attraction' to visit doesn't really matter. This trail tries to capture that spirit - starting at a harbour-side market, delving into ancient alleys, taking a funicular up a mountain and walking down again through forest and the cobbled streets of historic districts. It's about the experience - not the destination.

Not technically challenging. There is however a good amount of elevation change over s rather short distance. Enjoyable hike no matter how you cut it.

Great trail with a lake and sheep! easy to take the train up or down and walk the other. Can be done in an hour or longer.
