Skiven Guesthouse is situated in a residential neighbourhood in the town centre where you live among the locals. Since the town centre is fairly compact, it is a short walk to all major sites.

Walking distances on foot:

  1. Train station: 5 minutes
  2. Bus station/airport bus: 7-8 minutes
  3. Fish market / Harbour area / Tourist information: 8-10 minutes
  4. Central square (Torgallmenningen): 8-10 minutes

The Coastal Steamer (Hurtigruten) calls at Bergen at Noestekaien which is about a 25 minute walk to Skiven Guesthouse. From this harbour we recommend a taxi to our place.

If you arrive in Bergen by bus from the airport, we recommend that you leave the bus at the central bus station. This is less than a 10 minute walk from our place.


Guests who arrive by car can park on the street below our house. From 11pm to 8am on weekdays, 5pm to 8am on Saturdays and on Sundays, parking is free.

During daytime parking requires a permit. The price for a one-day/24 hour permit is NOK 100. An evening permit for use on workdays after 5pm is available at NOK 40. We do not make any profit on the reselling of permits.


From the train station (number 1 on the map)
Exit through the main entrance and take Strømgaten to the right, up to the traffic lights at Kong Oscarsgate. Take this street to the left towards downtown, and then turn right on the second street, Dankert Krohnsgate, which ends after about 150 metres. From here some steps lead up to Skivebakken. No. 17 is the first house to the left at the top of the steps.

It is possible to avoid the steps by walking around the block. When in Kong Oscarsgate turn right into the third street, Molloesmauet. After 100 metres you have reached Skivebakken. You will find our guesthouse at No. 17, about 100 metres up the hill, on the right hand side.

From the bus station (number 2 on the map)
Walk to the train station, which is a 2-3 minute walk north of the bus station. Then follow the above directions from there.

From the harbour area (number 4 on the map)
Follow Kong Oscarsgate about 400 metres to the second traffic light, and then take Heggebakken to the left. After about 50 metres, behind a big ochre-coloured wooden building (a day-care centre), Skivebakken goes to the right. You will find our guesthouse at No. 17, about 100 metres up the hill, on the right-hand side.
