Situated above the harbour both the tower and the hall are worth a visit in Bergen. The tower is under restoration but still open to visitors. Great history lesson in it on the development of Bergen. Only go if you can climb a tight stone...More

Interesting fortress ruin in military area. Ruins have been restored as much as possible to be historically accurate. See with the rest of the fortress area.

We had this on our list of places to visit when in Bergen for the week. It was disappointing, as a music festival was being held and we were denied entry, even the day before the festival started!

A great place filled with history about Bergen - it's a very nice spot to walk around and spend some time in.

This is a pretty nice area to walk around in and look at all the old buildings and signs about the fort. There was a event there when I was there so access was limited but it was still really nice.

This is a cool area to walk to. Wish we had been able to go into the large hall but it was closed for the day. The Rosenkrantz tower was having repair work done on the outside, but we were able to climb up it...More

This fortress encompasses Haakon's Hall, Rosenkrantz Tower, open areas, upper and lower areas that are worth a hike, an active Navy unit and a museum. With everything, this is good for a leisurely daylong visit. Bergenfest interferes with much of the access.
