Itinerary for your Post-Programme:

Day 1:   Disembarkation/Bergen

Bergen was founded in the year 1070. Up to the 1830's the city was the largest city in Norway and a centre for commerce and shipping.  For several centuries the Hanseatic merchants had one of their overseas trading offices in Bergen - the German office at Bryggen. Your tour starts  after disembarkation with a drive along the German pier "Bryggen" with its old wooden warehouses from the hanseatic period and continues through the city and suburbs to Troldhaugen - the composer Edvard Grieg's home for 22 years. 

Troldhaugen is beautifully situated by the peaceful Nordåsvannet lake. Grieg composed many of his most famous works at Troldhaugen, and he is also buried here with his wife Nina. Your next stop is at the Fantoft stave church. The old stave church built in Fortun, Sogn in 1150, moved to Fantoft in 1883 and burnt down in 1992. The church has now been rebuilt just as it was before the fire.

Our final stop is the city museums of KODE, one of the largest museum complex for art, craft, design and music in the Nordic countries. Our guided tour inside will focus on the Rasmus Meyer collection about Munch, the most famous Norwegian painter. The tour ends with a short transfer to your hotel.
