Start your weekend with a stroll through Bryggen and feel that you traveling back in time. Smell the wood and hear the creak of the woodwork as you walk in the narrow passageways. Bryggen is part of UNESCO's World Heritage List. Pop into one of the many galleries and small shops and buy a painting or souvenir to take home.
For lunch try Cornelius Seafood Restaurant, one of Norway's best seafood restaurants situated right by the sea on a small island with spectacular views of the fjord, mountains, skerries, and passing boats and ships. It is truly magical, the food as well as the surroundings. The island can only be reached by boat and the trip takes about 25 minutes from the city center and you can book in advance. Scheduled departures every day from middle of May to late August. For other times of the year the boat leaves on demand. You can book both the dinner trip and lunch trip online.

Back in the city centre; take a stroll to Fløibanen Funicular that takes you up to the top of Mount Fløyen. Seeing the city from above gives you that great feeling of freedom and being on top of the world! Ask someone to take your photo with the amazing view as a backdrop. This is the perfect spot for that Facebook photo! If you follow the trail to the left you will see a few nice secluded benches where you can watch the sunset and just enjoy being together.
