This tour offers an initial overview of the history and structure of the city. It takes you through the charming streets of Bergen, focusing on the downtown area surrounding the bustling harbour, the UNESCO-listed Wharf, the beautiful city park and adjoining museums.
For over 400 years, The Wharf – one of Bergen’s main attractions – was one of the offices of the Hanseatic League. We stroll through the wooden tenements and delve into bygone days and the history of the Wharf and the stories of those who lived and worked there. This walk can also include a visit either to the St. Mary’s Church, Bryggen’s Museum of medieval archaeology or the Hanseatic Museum.
