After the funicular, this is my second pick for a visit to Bergen. Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf, now under a UNESCO World Heritage listing, has been lovingly restored and maintained with a practical use. Although the beautiful wooden buildings are certainly showing their age, today they...More

I always thought that Bergen looks like this everywhere. That's the same photo you see in every guide. Unfortunately this is just a very short street. Buildings are beautiful indeed but they are occupied by businesses and offices.

This city is just so beautiful day and night! We definitely want to come back here. There’s so much to do but just bumbling around the city is an absolute pleasure!

Wow. Such a lovely stroll! We drove by in the daytime and walked around in the evening, after Floyen. They light it up at night so you can still see it. Loved it.

It’s like stepping back in time as you wander along the front of the houses and then through the alleys with the crazy angles of the steps and building overhanging edges. There are some lovely shops - mainly tourist type though - lots of Norwegian...More

My friends and I had a great time walking around Bryggen. It was a great feeling to walk through houses that has historical background. They might have been more crowded in the times of the Hanse, with marketeers in front of them. We went on...More

Everything about Norway is beautiful, but Bergen - or Bryggen as they call it - is a beautiful place of 'history stood still'. Some of these buildings were built over a thousand years ago. You won't want to miss them!

Most of Bergen is easily walkable, and do remember there is a bus! The drivers will speak a fair amount of English, if Norwegian is not your first (or your second or your third...) language, so they can help you if you can’t... More
