Bergen, a city guide

Ignore Bergen’s status as Norway’s wettest town and stay long enough to see the sun emerge over one of the country’s most attractive urban centres. The colourful wharves and warehouses of Bryggen on the waterfront are beautiful in any weather, but shelter from the rain in the fascinating Leprosy Museum or at the excellent aquarium.
