12 Fish Market in Bergen, Norway

A very popular tourist attraction is the Fish Market. Fishermen began selling their catches at Bergen in the early 13th century. The first Fish Market was located near Bryggen. In the mid-16th century, the commerce moved to the quays of Vågen bay in the heart of the city. Today, Fisketorget has bustling outdoor stalls during the summer months selling seafood plus flowers, produce and souvenirs. Additional vendors, shops and restaurants operate all year from inside the permanent facility called Mathallen. There also is a tourist information center located in this building.
