Driving in Bergen
Norway has a human-oriented traffic culture that puts pedestrians and cyclists first. Pedestrians who want to cross the street expect you to slow down or stop, and cyclists do not always obey traffic rules. In the event of a breakdown or accident, all vehicles must carry at least a high-visibility vest, a warning triangle and liability insurance. Dipped headlights are always mandatory, even on the brightest summer day. If you want to drive in Aalesund and have a driver's licence issued in an EU/EEA country, you can use it in Norway as long as it is valid. Driving licences from most countries outside the EU/EEA can be used in Norway for up to three months.

What to see in Bergen
Bergen is popular for its culture, history and scenery. It was Norway's capital and largest city until it was overtaken by Oslo. It is known as the 'Gateway to the Fjords' and is a must-see for any visitor to Norway. Bergen is surrounded by mountains that have limited the city's growth. The geography of the city invites hikers to enjoy the spectacular views from the peaks. Over the centuries, the city has suffered greatly from fires, so only the old port of Bryggen reminds us of Bergen's past. Energy and effort will reward the hiker with breathtaking views that are unparalleled in Scandinavia. If the effort is too much for you, you can take the Fløibanen funicular to the top of Fløyen and enjoy the view without exertion. The Bergenhus fortress is also worth a detour. It is the oldest and best-preserved fortress in Norway and was once the seat of the Norwegian kings.

Where to eat, drink, and party in Bergen
Bergen has a first-rate range of restaurants, most of which focus on seafood. The more expensive tourist spots are concentrated in the Bryggen but do not dismiss these as some of them are really worth visiting. Less expensive restaurants are located in the side streets behind the Bryggen, and another collection of restaurants is located in and around Engen. Many locals, however, eat more cheaply and casually in the many café-bars scattered throughout the city centre. In Bergen you will find many music festivals, the best being Bergenfest, which takes place at the end of April. There is also a jazz festival in the summer, followed by a reggae festival. May 17 is Constitution Day and all Norwegians celebrate their country with street parties, music and dancing.
