Bryggen Wharf Bergen

Bryggen in Bergen is world famous and attract every year around one million visitors.

The old wharf of Bergen is a reminder of the town’s importance as part of the Hanseatic League’s trading empire from the 14th to the mid-16th century.
Today Bryggen includes restaurants, artists' studios, craftsmen’s workshops, small boutiques and even offices.

 
The Old Hanseatic Trading Buildings

Many fires, the last in 1955, have ravaged the characteristic wooden houses of Bryggen. The rebuilding has traditionally followed old patterns and methods, thus leaving its primary structure preserved.

This is a relic of an ancient wooden urban structure, which once was common in Northern Europe. Today you will find 62 of the old buildings left in the townscape.


Unesco Heritage

Bryggen Wharf became a member of UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979 and is one of the eight UNESCO Heritage attractions in Norway
