I know there are many sites which will allow me to find a flight to wherever from a given airport, but I haven't found one that would allow me to specify a destination and no starting location. Are there any? (Obviously, I'm looking for cheaper flights)

Concretely, I'd like to go to Bergen so any specific advice is also welcome! –  VPeric Dec 17 '12 at 16:10

skyscanner! Actually in their form the departure airport is mandatory but you can still have a precise idea of prices by choosing "fly from Bergen". You might check this question: travel.stackexchange.com/questions/2615/… –  Vince Dec 17 '12 at 16:33

If you could yourself limit to an airport and all airports within a 2000 miles radius, then Google's Matrix Airfare Search could be an option for you. Generally, all matrix flight search engines could be interesting. I did your specific search query for you and checked all the flights from Berlin, including all other airports within 2000 miles radius, to Bergen for January 2013:

If you select one of these dates, you can see the specific flights. For example for the cheap flight at January, 13., you get a list like this:

I might be misunderstanding, but he asked to search with the FROM blank, and the TO set to Bergen. Isn't this doing the reverse? –  Mark Mayo Dec 17 '12 at 17:11

The from is not blank, but I added all airports in Europe. I don't now a search engine that allows that, so I used an approximation. –  RoflcoptrException Dec 17 '12 at 17:20

I think the only answer to this question would be this one, because there HAS to be some criteria to limit a search. Because if you think about it, any search structured as FROM anywhere to a SPECIFIC place will always be true and have options running into thousands. I also cannot imagine it to be a very useful search option: it doesn't make sense to have a flight starting anywhere in the globe, and the use case for this is weak. –  Ankur Banerjee Dec 17 '12 at 18:57
    
Thanks, this will be more than good enough for my purposes! @AnkurBanerjee If you limit the flight to one or two stops only, it makes perfect sense: I really, really want to go somewhere and I don't care from where. My particular use-case is slightly more unique, but I was still sure there's a way to get this data (as it must exist already) and I'm glad Roflcoptr proved me true. –  VPeric Dec 17 '12 at 19:33
