    Rain rain go away

    March 5 in Norway ⋅ 🌧 5 °C

    Well rain it did in Bergen and this little city certainly lived up to its reputation! A grey rainy afternoon on arrival and on departure. Bergen is said to be one of the rainiest cities. Bergen also appears to be the start or finishing point for travellers, rather than a destination on its own. The old of Bergen - Bryggen with its old wooden houses is interesting, as are the city streets that reach up each side of the surrounding mountains, but really once you’ve strolled some streets, taken the furnicular up to Fløen and the cable care to Ulrik (once you’ve found out how to get there and found the place), visited some museums (if they are actually open) there’s not that much to do in Bergen in the Winter. Of course there is always hiking, for which we really needed extra time and a little preparation. However, there is always interesting street art and small local bars to visit. Tonight we’re off on the Nordnorge on the famous Hurtigruten route up the coast of Norway. We are heading for the Arctic circle and beyond to Kirkenes. We hope the Viking weather gods are kind to us and hopefully we will be granted a glimpse of the Northern Lights.Read more

    Tunnel, Flüsse und Bergen

    July 21, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Von Tildal ging es durch 53 Tunnel bis nach Bergen, der zweitgrössten Stadt Norwegens. 🌃 🇳🇴
    Die Strecke dahin war wunderschön und ging entlang an vielen Seen, Fjorden und Flüssen. 🛶
    In Bergen hatten wir schlechtes Wetter und blieben daher nur kurz in der Stadt. Unsere Reise geht weiter in Richtung Sognefjord.Read more

    Bergen, Norway

    July 2, 2018 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 64 °F

    The town of Bergen is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
    We walked its winding, cobblestone streets and viewed the painted wooden houses with gabled facades. The town has many medieval buildings located around the wharf. The quaint two story warehouses are now shops and art galleries. It has a beautiful harbor and a lively market. In the fish market we sampled caviar that they put on top of your hand to taste.
    Bergen was a charming last port to end our voyage.

    Trollveggen und Trollstigen

    September 3, 2018 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Weiter geht es zur Trollwand Trollveggen. Mit 1000 Meter Höhe ist sie Europas höchste senkrechte und teils überhängende Bergwand. Die Felswand ragt 1.700m über die Talsohle.
    Der Trollstigen (Trollleiter) führt in elf Haarnadelkurven mit etwa zwölf Prozent Steigung hinauf zur Passhöhe. Dabei überwindet er eine Höhendifferenz von 405 m und erreicht 700 moh. Auf halber Strecke führt die Straße, zudem über einen eindrucksvoll rauschenden Wasserfall, den 320 Meter hohen Stigfossen.
    Zum Glück ist es etwas aufgeklart und wir haben einen tollen Blick ins Tal.
