Bryggen is a place with lots of small but a variety of stores in wooden buildings with small streets in between. Nice to roam around and browse in the shops. It has seating area at the harbour side, but completely empty due to the rain.

Aside from the fact that it is a colorful place, it becomes the focus for learning about some truly important aspects of history. It is a World Heritage Site for good reason. Many restaurants in the area, so it is part of an enjoyable walk.

The old hanseatic wharf is the true symbol of the old trading city of Bergen where fish arrived from the north to be sold to foreign merchants. The wharf is extremely well kept. At the same time it is an exciting place in summer with lots of outdoor restaurants and a small boat harbour.

We visited the place during COVID 19 and few visitors were around at the time we were there. Interesting colorful buildings with souvenirs shops closed due to Easter holidays.
Overall I can imagine it is crowded place if no pandemic and Easter is the applied combination.

The Hanseatic Wharf is beautiful, colorful, and has become one of the most familiar views of the Bergen waterfront. The buildings are historic, well restored, and occupied by a variety of shops and even a hotel. On a nice day the wharf is an ideal place for a stroll and for taking pictures in addition to learning about the history of Bergen. Don't miss it!

This is kind of a must-see in Bergen, and to be honest it’s almost impossible not too. Colourful wooden buildings facing the harbour, contains a warren of shops and eating and drinking places - fascinating to walk round, the buildings are under continual maintenance and are clearly moving as they are all leaning in and propped up on each other. Brilliant fun to walk around.

Sensory overload - visual, auditory (the place creaks and groans), smell (harbour side aromas) , tactile (touching 700 year old beams) and taste (great coffee shops). The place oozes history being founded by the Hanseatic Leage of German traders in the 1300s to hiding Norwegian resistance fighters in WW2. A must visit.

A row of very well kept multi-level wooden shops on the ground floor and apartments on the upper floors. The ground floor is mostly occupied by souvenir shops and upper floors are mostly empty. Some shops has trapezoid doors!! due to the age of the building. Try to look for the small lane in between the building that is only passable by leg traffic. It lead towards more shops that is on the inside of the building.

A world heritage site, so a must visit. It’s a beautiful row of buildings and some of the building structure seems to be leaning to a side. Wal kk around time the back as there’s some really nice old houses there.

The iconic frontage is of course a complete tourist trap, but so what? It's still a great view and the weight of history and genuinely ancient nature of the buildings is real enough. Going behind the frontage is even better, as the uneven timbered building and walkways remind me of something from the pages from Dickensian London. Lots of interesting little shops and galleries within the Bryggen, and I'd say if you have an hour in Bergen, spend it here.
