Bergenhus Fortress - Rosenkrantz Tower
We started walking at the top of the mountain by the University of Bergen, past the Johanneskirken or cathedral, down the enormously steep stairs of Vestre Torggaten, through the city plaza, along the Vaagen that is a famous wharf with the Bryygen row of shop that are over 1000 years old, and up the hill to the Bergenhus castle built in 1200's to explore the Rosenkrantz Tower. the long walk was 2.1 Kilometers each way. even with wool tights on under my jeans, two hoodies and a ski coat, with the temperature -11 °C I was very cold. Tomorrow it should snow.
