Show details by

Ticket details

The show is outdoor open admission all standing no seats at all. See area maps. For some strange reason those tickets printed out by the Postal Offices in Norway have got seat and row numbers. But there are no such seats/rows. Those tickets are of course valid as a general entrance ticket for the show, at the given category as shown on the ticket. There is a Front Of Stage (FOS) area on Ronne side also called Golden Circle.

Ticket prices are NOK 2075 (Golden Circle), 1095, 795 including sales fees, equivalent to approx. Euro 250, 140, 100. The Golden Circle area in the front of the stage will have separate toilet facilities and bar.

How to get to the venue

Walking distance 10 minutes from the city center Fiskebryggen.

Travel information

Bergen city is tourist city number one in Norway. The city between seven mountains. Check out the tourist sites.

Venue maps

Koengen is an outdoor area, part of an old fortress area called Bergenhus. In this area you do also find H�konshallen, famous in Bergen.

Recommended hotels

All sold out they say but try the signs saying "Rom" (room) which means someone is hiring out a room in their private home. Great and local alternative. Or ask the tourist office, located in the center of the city, at Bryggen.
