What to do in Bergen in Winter 2021

Visiting the city in the winter offers a variety of fun indoor and outdoor activities for visitors of all ages. Perhaps one of the most popular activities to do near town is to ski. Kvamskogen ski resort is a popular day trip in the winter season, especially among locals. A great car rental in Bergen for a skiing day trip is an SUV to ensure that everyone (and everything!) will fit in the vehicle. If you prefer to keep your rental in Bergen, there are plenty of things to do under the winter sun. The outdoor fish market is a great place to spend a beautiful winter afternoon. Located in the historical center for fish trade, this market is dominated by souvenir shops and seafood stalls alike. To escape the cold, why not head into any one of the many museums in the city. Bergen's Art Museum is one of the largest art museums in the Nordic countries. Be sure to check out the Gingerbread Town until December 23, and the Bergen International Whiskey and Beer Festival in late January.

Traffic Information

Driving through downtown Bergen will be a slow, and relaxing experience as local authorities have put every effort into cutting traffic in the city center. The speed limits are very low downtown, and most streets are one-way. Once out of the city center, however, the streets open up with a number of expressways heading in most directions. Be sure to keep in mind that many expressways around the city have tolls managed by automated toll stations. Be sure to speak with an employee when you pick up your car to fully understand the rules governing taking rental cars on toll roads, as the station simply photographs your license plate and mails the invoice.

Sixt Tips

Bergen was founded in 1070 AD, and rapidly evolved into one of the most important cities in Norway. Throughtout the 1200s it was the largest city in Scandinavia. The city was vital in interconnecting continental Europe with the northern and coastal parts of Norway, leading it to become a central spot for the vending of stockfish and a commercial hot spot in Norway. The city remained the largest city in the country until the 1830s, and continues its long maritime history in shipping and finance to this day. One of its most prominent historic sites is the old harbor of Bryggen. This is one of only a few UNESCO World Heritage Sites in all of Norway. Except for the dense city center, which made up the entire city before 1916, it is the least dense of the four largest cities in Norway. Most of the settlement inside the very wide city borders is concentrated in the western part. The rest of the municipality is made up of mountains, as well as some farmland and smaller settlements. Looking for more ideas?

Sightseeing Destinations

While there is plenty to do in Bergen to keep you busy for weeks, it is also a great starting point from which to take your car rental for a drive. Lysøen is an island that belonged to the famous Norwegian musician Ole Bull. The island is a great setting for walks and to tour the house that Bull built. You can get to the island via a ferry that departs from Buena quay, and simply leave your car in the quay's parking lot. Hellesøy in Øygarden is another island worth visiting. This island is located close to the North Sea. and will take your around one to one and a half hours to drive from the city center. Hellesøy is another beautiful island where you can enjoy nature, go for a hike, or even spend a relaxing day fishing. Fishing rods are available to rent, and you can enjoy your lunch in either the open air or at one of the local cafeterias.
