Explore the shops, galleries, pubs, restaurants, and museums dispersed within the medieval wooden buildings of Bryggen, designated a World Heritage Site in 1979. The site dates back to before 1070, and developed into an important Norwegian trading center with an office of the Hanseatic League opened here in 1360. Today the town is one of the most visited attractions in Norway. Wander the ancient alleys, sit and people-watch along the waterfront, and admire the Nordic houses. Stop by the Hanseatic trade building built in 1702, the Maria Church, the Bryggen Museum, the Hanseatic Museum, or Schotstuene assembly rooms on your way around town. Make Bryggen a part of your Bergen vacation plans using our Bergen day trip website.
Beautiful historical area filled with much activity, shops, sounds, smells, and people from all around the world. Rich in history this area is a bustling tourist area but also a fun area for the locals to go out enjoy the nightlife. Definitely a must on the bucket list.
Bryggen is a must see while in Bergen. Walking through the stores and by the old wooden buildings is just magical and an experience you won't soon forget. Be sure to take the time to enjoy the history and beauty that is around you.
