Talking Statues Walking Tour in Bergen

Talking Statues Walking Tour in Bergen

I am a certified guide who planned for you an alternative walking tour to experience Bergen. I selected more than 10 statues in the city centre that have an interesting story, an anecdote, a secret to tell and share. You'll therefore meet composers, vikings, poets, a Roman god, a king, sailors... As you get familiar with Bergen foundation, the development of the city, its love for music, the theatre, the Norwegian romantic nationalism, Norwegian indipendence, the second world War occupation and other historical events that made this city protagonist in Norwegian history, Bergen will eventually emerge as charming and colorful mosaic. Starting point at the public library (once you arrive, look for a man with the red umbrella... That's me!) we walk past the city lake, Festplassen, the city park, we then head towards the theatre and down to torgalmenningen. The good bye is in holbergsplass, opposite to the fishmarket. French or Italian upon request. Bring an umbrella ;)
