Bergen was founded in 1070A.D. by King Olav Kyrre. It continued to grow as a city and by 1360 it was a major trading center in the medieval Hanseatic League exporting dried cod. The old wharves area is a UNESCO World Heritage site. We were able to walk here from our Princess cruise terminal in about 30 minutes at a... More

At the top of the must do list is this row of rebuilt Hanseatic houses. The occupants are an appealing array of touristic necessities: eateries, coffee shops, Norwegian crafts and designer housewares. Very quaint and beautiful harbour sights.

If you are looking to engross yourself in the culture of Bergen, then walk upon the Hanseatic Wharf. Its absolutely beautiful and there is so much to see! It will probably take 2-3 hours but it is worth it!

As cute as these beautiful 18th centre waterfront buildings are from the front the true pleasure in them is achieved by wondering the alleys between them so you can really appreciate the building style and the now crocks and leans they have taken in with age. Currently (mid Nov) there are a couple under renovation allowing a unique look at... More

For us, walking along the southwestern side of the Vågen Harbor on a damp and misty morning, the Bryggen slowly emerged from the fog to give us a view of its colorful two and three story buildings shown in most pictures of Bergen. We soon found out that the wooden buildings both fronting the walkway and in the alleys and... More

This area is a beautiful sight, even in the dreary rain and cold! The architecture of the buildings in the World Heritage site is like nothing else - old wooden-style, bright colours, some of the facades sloping slightly, and such charming interiors, made even more so by those selling Christmas decorations. On a day with better weather, I'm sure the... More
