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.

  • Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf is a great place to do a little shopping and get a bite to eat..perhaps a cinnamon roll at the bakery. Highly recommend visiting. Stop in DMG Gallery for some great artwork.....  more

  • The most visited place in Bergen, the beautiful colourful houses surely look gorgeous on a rare sunny day. The narrow alleys and the vintage stores tell lot of stories! Dates back to 10th century, history of this old Viking market area is pretty amazing!
  • 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.
