At the far end of Torgalmenningen there is a church. No it isn't Bergen Cathedral. It's Johanneskirken (St Jhons church)

The room inside is pretty big, and with good lights so you can see everything. But that isn't why I'm writing this tip. If you get a chance to go to a concert in this church do so. The accoustics are very good, and the organ a masterpiece. It is a Schlag & Søhne from 1893 and is one of the countrys most valuable romantic organs.

Directions: West of Torgalmenningen, up the stairs

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
