Workshop Venue

The workshop will take place at Bergen University College in the Jacob Eide lecture hall.

The lecture hall is at the back of the University College. We recommend that you go to the main entrance of the college (the broad stairs at Nygårdsgaten 112), and then proceed through the college building, following the signs. You will then find the auditorium across the square, to the right. (You may also walk through the tunnel which is to the right of the entrance and up through the parking lot to the right, or access the auditorium through the streets at the back, but these are advanced options.)

The route to the lecture hall will be clearly marked from the main entrance of the college. Please consult the map below.

You should be able to find your hotel and the route from your hotel at the hotel page. If your hotel is in the city centre, walking to the college is probably easier that trying to take the bus or light rail. If you arrive by light rail (Bybanen), the stop ‘Nygård’ is right outside the college.

The reception is at Schøtstuene, in Øvregaten 50, 15–25 minutes walk from the University College. Walking will take you past the somewhat famous (and somewhat overrated) Fisketorget (the market), and also close to Bryggen, which is worth a visit. With nice weather, you should consider strolling along bryggen first, before going to the reception. It's an old wooden building, and the entrance is through a wooden gate in a stone fence.


For the dinner, you should go to Fløibanen and take the funicular up to the top of the mountain. The restaurant is the large building you'll see when you exit the funicular station at the top. You'll find two tickets for the funicular in workshop bag.
