Here we will explain how to get from the library to KMD, and how to return to the library. First, we will give instructions on how to get there by bus. Scroll down further to see how to get there on foot.
Taking the Bus
To get to KMD from the Public Library, you can take bus number 12 or 21 from the bus station behind Bergen Public Library.
Walk through the entrance of the shopping mall called Bergen Storsenter, which is right behind Bergen Public Library.
Continue in a straight line until you have walked through the exit on the other side of the shopping mall.
When you exit here, you can see the big bus station area. Continue in a straight line.
You can take bus number 12 from platform B or bus number 21 from platform D.
Alternatively, you can walk past the ornamental lake in front of the library, to the bus stop outside the shopping mall called Xhibition. This takes about 5 minutes.
Take bus number 2, 3 or 80 from the bus stop in front of Xhibition.
No matter which bus you take (2, 3, 12, 21 or 80), get out at the bus stop called “Haukeland Sykehus” (meaning “Haukeland Hospital”). The bus stop is next to the flower shop, before the tunnel.
It takes about 5 minutes to walk from the bus stop to the KMD.
To get to KMD from the bus stop, turn away from the tunnel and walk until you see this shop, with the sign that says “Møllendalsbakken”. Turn left at the shop/sign.
Walk down the hill called Møllendalsbakken until you see the KMD entrance, which looks like this:
To Return to the City Center
When going back to the city center, go back up the hill.
Take bus number 2, 3, 12 or 80 from the bus stop across the road from the flower shop by the tunnel. Use the overhanging bridge to cross the road.
If you take bus number 2, 3 or 80, get out at the bus stop at Xhibition.
If you take bus number 12, get out at the bus station at Bergen Storsenter shopping mall.
From the library to the KMD, walking takes around 25 minutes if you walk slowly, so take your time and don’t rush.
Go through the entrance of the shopping mall Bergen Storsenter (behind the library), go in a straight line through the shopping mall, exit the shopping mall and continue in a straight line past the bus station.
Continue in a straight line past the left side of the large building called AdO Arena, which looks like this:
You will then come to a lake called Store Lungegårdsvannet. If you follow the path as it is marked on the map below, you will eventually arrive at the KMD building.
This is what the area around KMD looks like when you arrive from the path around the lake. You can see the KMD building on the left:
To return to the library, take the same path back.
