Cecilia Brækhus’ Bergen-favorites

Bergen is home away from home for the “boxing phantom,” who was adopted by her Norwegian parents in Sandviken. Here are her favorite parts of “the city between the seven mountains.”


Make a note of the date, 9 June. It’ll be fun to follow in the footsteps of Rihanna, Kanye West, Metallica and Bruce Springsteen, who have appeared here, and now we’re going to stage a boxing event in the same venue.



An absolute must! It’s the heart of Bergen. It’s so incredibly beautiful. This is the place to go if you want to feel and experience what it’s like to be in Bergen.



I have to include this. I did a lot of interval training there when I was younger. If you don’t want to run up there, you can take the funicular.

Such a cool place! A restaurant, bar and club rolled into one. Lots of different types of food, but for fresh seafood, there’s nowhere else in the world that delivers the quality and selection that Bergen does. It’s quite incredible. I also recommend the fish market.

Godt Brød/Blå Steinen

I used to go here a lot. It’s right next to the blue stone. As the name suggests, you can get good bread here. The best sandwiches you can buy, with an exquisite view of the city center and down to the blue stone. Very cozy.
