Bergen is the second largest city in Norway, with a population of 252 051. Bergen is an important cultural center in its region and was one of nine European cities honored with the title of European Capital of Culture in 2000.

This video begins as I sail down the Byfjorden Fjord and under the Askøy Bridge on the Sea Princess. Bergen is one of the wettest places in the world so the bright sunshine overhead was a nice bonus for this beautiful city. After docking near the city center I started my tour of the city. The first stop on the tour is Fløibanen, a funicular to the top of Mount Fløyen where there are spectacular views of the city. Fløibanen is Bergen's biggest tourist attraction and one of Norway's most visited sights. It is the only funicular cable car for passengers in Scandinavia. After descending from the mountain our tour concludes with a drive around the city.

In my Bergen Part Two video I explore the city center on foot.
