Augustin Hotel’s location is truly unbeatable. Take a short stroll, and you have a picture postcard view of the Fløibanen funicular and the famous Bryggen – a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Whether you are going sightseeing, are looking for restaurants, or would like to do some shopping, you will soon discover that you are in the perfect spot – in the heart of Bergen city centre.
For shopping, the perfect starting point is Torgallmenningen only a short walk away (500 metres).
To explore Bryggen, Sandviken, and the Fløibanen funicular, add to your experience with a trip with “Beffen” – the only remaining ferry link across Vågen. This charming little ferry departs every 10 minutes during the day.
Augustin Hotel can be found in the part of the city called Nordnes, which is also home to Bergen Aquarium – one of the most popular tourist attractions. It also has tropical section where you can experience crocodiles, snakes, monkeys, and other fascinating creatures.
The aquarium is situated one kilometre from Augustin, and the walk is a history lesson in itself. Nordnes is one of the oldest parts of Bergen, and features buildings dating back to the 1100s.
