Ever since the great fire, Bragernes Torg has served as the natural gathering place in the city. People meet here to trade in vegetables, flowers, fruit and berries, and all of sorts of seasonal products.

The outdoor stage lends itself to all kinds of events, there is a small ice skating rink, and Bragernes Torg also serves as an arena for World Cup sprint competitions and other sporting activities. People sitting at sidewalk cafe´s and restaurants enjoying a coffe or a beer.
