How safe is Bergen?

Bergen is a super safe city. I really have never felt so safe in any country and city that i'v even been. Plus in the summer time we have kinda "white nights" which makes it even more calm to walk around)

Generally very safe, there are usually some drunk students in the city centre at night, but they don't really bother others. I very rarely feel unsafe alone in the city or outside the city. People mostly keep to themselves

Bergen, like the rest of Norway, is generally very safe. Walking alone at night or traveling around in general is not a problem. Public transport is clean and reliable. Most people speak English and are helpful and polite if you need directions or assistance.

Bergen is a charming and small city with walking distance to most places. The culture is used to strong women and independent women. Women I. This city is respected and seen equal as men. Also the city have a lot of female owned/run bars and restaurants.

Bergen is very touristy and safe for women solo travelers. There is gonna be a lot of drug users around at night and early mornings, but they have never talked to me. Bergen is beautiful and you can ask any stranger about directions or help.

I loved Bergen and felt very safe. I walked through Vidden, ate the most delicious seafood at an outdoor restaurant in the market, and then took a fjord cruise to Flam, returning to Bergen by train.

Family travel experience

I loved Bergen! We went on one of these get your guide tours and it was really worth it! We were a family of 3 (my dad, brother and me) and we stayed at the Scandic Neptun hotel! The breakfast was included, there were 3 single beds so it was perfect for our little trip! We took the train from Oslo to Bergen and had a stop at Myrdal, where we took the Myrdal train which was worth it as well! Can really recommend it! Check out the train schedules on google maps! Super easy and reliable!

Solo travel experience

I was in Bergen for a few days in July. I visited Ulriksbanen and the views were magnificent. There are options for traveling / walking up and descent / walking back down. I also participated in a kayak tour around nearby fjords for a day, which was a wonderful experience.
