    Hansa Bryggen

    Favorite thing: An important part of Bergen's identity is the old wooden warf buildings called "Bryggen"

    Bryggen was placed on UNESCO's World Heritage list in 1979 and is now one of 4 sites on that list from Norway. These old warf buildings date back to the 14th century when Bergen was part of the Hanseatic League's trading empire. Another known (and the largest) Hansa city is Lübeck in Germany.

    Favorite thing: There you´ll find Hanseatic wooden buildings with pointed gables facing onto the harbor. Bryggen (the Wharf) has a unique architecture, and is listed by UNESCO as one of the world’s most significant examples of the history and culture of a medieval settlement. We've been twice there yet and I just like to walk along there.

    It's in walking distance from the city center of Bergen.

    Favorite thing: Visit the area of Hanseatic League. The Germans had settled here at the 14° Century a trading post to buy fish.
    They stopped in 1743.
    The wooden coonstructions were arsoned several times but rebuilt on the same basis each time.
