We spent one full day in Bergen, and I found it to be super charming. It has a lot in common with San Francisco, if you ask me. Although Bergen is several hundred years older than SF they share a hilly terrain, wood-slat siding on many houses and some odd street intersections that make them a bit similar. There are other differences of course, as Bergen tends to have much heavier timber constructions that are sagging with the years in a beautiful way, and layer upon layer of history represented in her streets and stories. Bergen is smaller and its harbor is really it’s center, out from which the city fans in all directions.
