Bergenhus Fortress Overview
Bergenhus Fortress is undoubtedly one of the best places in Bergen to visit on your Norway trip. This medieval building has the oldest and the most well-constructed walls of the country, which was mainly a gun platform. It is still one of the most appealing structures in the entirety of Scandinavia.

The fortress was previously the royal palace at the time Bergen was credited as Norway's capital. Inside, you will find two impressive structures - Rosenkrantz Tower and Håkonshallen (Haakon's Hall). Get ready to be in awe of the architecture that still stands from the Viking era.
