Norway in World War 2

A tour filled with stories about heroes, tragedies & the daily life 

World War II was a time of oppression, deprivation and pain for the people of Norway. Despite a neutrality agreement with Germany, Norway was occupied and in this tour you will learn the reasons why. You will hear about the daring military action that brought Norway under the control of the German occupiers and how Norwegian resistance fighters risked their lives secretly fighting them. You will learn how everyday life was for the people and why Norway became the focus of the Nazis and the Allies in the race to build the first atomic bomb.


The history of Norway during World War II is unknown to many, but the Scandinavian country was not just a sideshow, but played a significant role in the course of the war. Travel 80 years back in time on this tour and learn about one of the darkest chapters of European and Norwegian history.

The tour is divided into two parts:

In the first part of the tour you will learn the basic background about the occupation of Norway, through an entertaining multimedia lecture in our event room in Bryggen.

Duration: approx. 1 hour


In the second part of the tour you will pass places such as the hideout of the "Theta group" and the Gestapo HQ and hear stories of heroes and tragedies from the war years in Bergen. Our group is small with a maximum of 12 participants, so you will always have the opportunity to ask questions. Duration approx. 1:30h
