During registraton you can ask us to book your hotel. We will then book a room at Augustin Hotell with the possibility of one or more nights at Zander K, as it seems several conferences are taking place in Bergen at this time. If you rather want to stay somewhere else, here are some suggestions:

Clarion Hotel Admiral

Klosterhagen Hotell

Comfort Hotel Holberg

Scandic Neptun


Restaurants are spread throughout the city senter. Here are some suggestions for you.

Enhjørningen – Bryggen 29 - Sea food

Open all days ( not Sunday) 16 – 23 - Pricy

Seafood restaurant on the Hanseatic Warf in old historical location and style. The name – Enhjørningen (the Unicorn) was first mentioned in the year 1304 as a name on the whole building, hence this rather unusual name for a sea food restaurant.

Villani – Skostredet – Italian

Open all days 12 – 22 (23 Wednesday – Saturday) – Reasonable

Located on Bergen’s most vibrant and cosy street, Skostredet. Here you can enjoy an authentic Italian experience with Napolitan style pizzas from the wood-oven, pasta in front of the fireplace, spritzers from the Proseccheria or you just pick a bottle from the wine loft.

Zupperia – Torget 13 - Asian, European, Soups

Open all days 12-23 (22) – Reasonable

Something for everyone at a reasonable price.
