There are plenty of places where you can go to see old buildings, but these are still in use, which makes them that much more enjoyable. Walking around through the narrow alleys and courtyards into the little shops felt like a trip through time.

While visiting the Bryggen area one gets a good view of the skyline and the historic buildings for which Bryggen is known for. These multicoloured buildings give a special character to the whole landscape.

The quirky buildings add character to the Bergen waterfront and most are now souvenir/craft shops. The traditional knitwear is lovely to look at but very expensive. We had three cruise ships in port the day that we were there which made it a huge struggle...More

This is a beautiful and historic area. Lots of little shops and outdoor cafes to sit and enjoy the surrounds. Close to the cruise terminal so it’s a quick walk.
