Welcome to our city, both as a runner and a tourist. Bergen is an international city with a rich history. It is a big city with a small town feel. Join runners from all over the world in one of the most beautiful marathon courses we have ever seen! The start and finish are located at the wooden buildings at «Bryggen» (Wharf). During the run you can enjoy the view from Fjellveien.  You will pass Fisketorget (Fish Market) and run through the charming Gamle Bergen (Old Bergen). If you have not seen enough during the run, we recommend a trip with the Fløybanen or cable car to the top of Ulriken mountain.

There are also a wide variety of places to eat where you can enjoy a well-earned banquet after the run. You deserve to be celebrated!

Our hotel sponsor will offer special prices for overnight accommodation and serve up an early marathon breakfast.

Thon Hotel Orion, Thon Hotel Bristol and Thon Hotel Rosenkrantz is located within a short walk from the start- and finish line start. For those who want to stay a bit outside the city center Thon Hotel Bergen Airport is recommended. If you want to combine the marathonrace with a weekendtrip along the West Coasts magnificent fjords and mountains, we recommend Thon Hotel Sandven. This hotel is located one hour drive from Bergen.
