Change in bus departures
The  Airport Bus departs 4 times per hour from the Bergen Airport to  the city centre of Bergen  – but only one of these departure per hour will bring you to the stop ‘Bryggen’ which is where the conference hotel of ISAE’2023, the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel is located. 
The airport bus which stops at ‘Bryggen’ / Radisson Blu Royal Hotel departs from the airport 23 minutes past every hour. If you miss this departure, you can take any of the other 3 departures every hour, but these bus departures stop at ‘Festplassen’, which is a 12 minute walk from the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel.
All stops are announced. Please signal when you wish to depart. For more info and time schedule, see for additional options including the Bergen Light Rail Service.
Welcome reception, Monday 5th August 19:00-20:00
Meet outside the congress hotel Radisson Blu Royal at 18:45 for a joint walk to Håkonshallen, while experiencing typical Bergen culture.  After the official ceremony, the students will gather downstairs in the cellar rooms under Håkonshallen to mix & mingle. Here they will get their canapees and wine, so it is not necessary to bring this from Håkonshallen.
Excursion Tour 2: 3-hour Norwegian Fjord Tour
Because of many participants, we have booked a larger boat. Therefore, this tour will start at 14:15, not 15:00 as earlier indicated. The tour ends at about 17:15.
