Bergen Sights

Fisketorget (Bergen Fish Market)

  • Market/Bazaar

Updated 10/26/2012

Fodor's Review

The busy fish market is one of Bergen's most popular attractions. Turn-of-the-20th-century photographs of this pungent square show fishermen in Wellington boots and raincoats and women in long aprons. Now the fishmongers wear bright-orange rubber overalls as they look over the day's catch. In 2012, some of the market moved indoors, to a brand-new food hall. Fruits, vegetables, and flowers are on offer, as are handicrafts and souvenirs. Try a classic Bergen lunch of shrimp

or salmon on a baguette with mayonnaise and cucumber.
