Church and Royal Power in the Middle Ages – on foot

SKJUL KART

Join our walking tour and learn more about the church and the kings of medieval Bergen. June-August, book online here!

The walking tour begins at Bryggens Museum, where you will hear about the remains of the oldest secular buildings and archaeological finds from Bryggen, which tells us about the people from the medieval town of Bergen. From Bryggens Museum, we continue to St. Mary's Church, one of the oldest surviving buildings in the city. The church was built in the mid-1100s, and, from the end of the Middle Ages, it was the German's church in Bergen. The church has the most elaborate church art of all the Middle Age churches in Norway. From St. Mary's Church, the tour continues to Bergenhus Fortress, where we will visit the Rosenkrantz Tower. The oldest part of the tower was used as a residence by the kings Magnus Håkonsson and Eirik Magnusson until 1299. Among other things, you can see the old dungeon from the 1500s.

The tour goes partly outside so make sure to have suitable clothing. It is not possible to bring wheelchairs or strollers on the entire tour because of the narrow staircases in the Rosenkrantz Tower. The stairs can also be challenging for people with reduced mobility. Dogs are not allowed on the tour.

The guided tour is only available in English.
