Parks and nature in Bergen

Top parks

Park
“Nordnesparken is a nice park where you can sit either on the sun or be protected by the trees. It is a great spot for a sunny day, and it is possible to swim here to. The walk to Nordnes is also really nice. When walking to it, try and walk the small and narrow streets where you will get a real good impression of some of the characteristic houses of Bergen. ”
