Bergen Tourist Board welcomes the media to Bergen – The Gateway to the Fjords of Norway

As a European City of Culture, World Heritage City and UNESCO City of Gastronomy, Bergen offers world-class experiences and culture. Being the Gateway to the Fjords of Norway, the Bergen region has the ideal combination of nature, culture and interesting urban attractions – all year round.

Bergen is an international city packed with history and tradition, a big city with small-town charm and atmosphere. Bergen likes visitors. And Bergen is worth a visit.

Bergen Tourist Board gives high priority to visiting media.  We consider it vital that those who market Bergen have seen the city for themselves. Do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to visit Bergen before, during and after the UCI Road World Championships.  We can make special arrangements to meet your requirements.

If you have time to visit the region before or after the Championships, as well as outside the sporting and cultural events that will take place in the period of the Championships, representatives from Bergen Tourist Board will assist in making programs. Representatives will also be official hosts in the Media Centre in Grieghallen.

The city of Bergen is proud to present a special edition of the “Guest-of-Honour”-card to all media visiting Bergen during the UCI Road World Championships. The card is included in your welcome pack and gives you free access or discounts to museums & attractions, sightseeing, concerts & performances, restaurants, scheduled bus travel and Light Rail during your stay in Bergen.
