Urban centre of Fana outside Bergen.

Nesttun is an urban centre and neighbourhood in the southern parts of the city of Bergen in Hordaland county, Norway. It is located approximately 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) south of the city centre. It was the centre of the old Fana municipality, which merged with Bergen in 1972, and is today the administration centre of Fana borough. Nesttun contains a mall, several smaller shops, a library, and Birkeland Church.

Transport

Until the opening of the Ulriken Tunnel in 1964, Nesttun was a station on the Bergensbanen railway, and a station on the Nesttun-Osbanen railway until its closure in 1935. After lengthy construction work, the two double-lane roads which went through the centre of Nesttun were converted into a pedestrian mall and a single-lane road. Nesttun is a major traffic junction of the Bergen area, and this status will be strengthened in 2010, when the first phase of the Bergen Light Rail system is completed. Buses to the city centre of Bergen depart Nesttun every five minutes.
