Geocache Description:

Bergen citycache. Micro.

If Bergen has a Castle - This is it. Inside the ramparts is this magnificent ancient building, but the complex Bergenhus is still partly occupied by military functions. On the ramparts You find both cannons, good view and signs telling You not to fall off.
I think this is the cache closest to where the ferries from UK docks, so I expect a lot of ferried in geocachers making their way for this cache.
The cache was in a secluded pocket on the lower level to the west of the large old building Håkonshallen inside the premises. After some garden clearing, it has lost its seclusion and is quite public. Watch out for mugglers.
This is the most visited cache in Bergen with over 400 logs and among the most visited caches in Norway.
The log was replaced on 2009-09-08, thanks (1000) to mdrange that helped with this!
