Ships offer many shore excursions in Bergen, but those who like to walk might want to just explore on their own. Many of the historical buildings are on Bryggen Wharf, and the Torget (market) on Fish Square is not to be missed. If it's a beautiful day, be sure to ride the Floibanen Funicular to the top of Mount Floyen. As seen in this Bergen photo gallery, the views of the town and the harbor below are spectacular, and the hiking trails are well marked and interesting.
