Create an itinerary including Bryggen
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.

  • Spent a lovely couple of hours wandering along the wharf looking at all the shops and enjoying the fresh clear lines and colors of these buildings. It costs nothing to just "be" in this place.

  • Beautiful area, just like the postcards, but pretty small area. Little boutique shops behind the historic front.

  • This beautiful medieval wharf brings you back in time. Walking between the wooden building is a very nice experience. If you are visiting Bergen you will definitely need to visit it and I believe you won't regret it.
  • Stunning! From the top you can see the fiords and you may forget where you are. At sunset there’s such a peace.. and colours make everything magic.
