What a great place for a walk, a bit of history, bright colors, views of the water and enjoyable retail. Did not miss the museums along the way, or some of the cute tourist shops. The photo opportunities vary by the day, but can't imagine a bad photo day here!

This is what you have come to see in Norway! A beautiful, historical section of Bergen, this is a fascinating part of town. I was here in February, and found it conveniently located right in the center of things, at the wharf.

A beautiful area to spend time exploring when visiting Bergen! The shop fronts have all been carefully preserved to ensure attention to historical detail. The colourful facades are a delight to see & it is a truly fascinating area by day or night! The port & adjacent harbour side area add to the charm of this place.

I heard so many good things about Bryggen from many people. I did not expect it to be This Charming. I fall in love with every single corner I turned. Many old shops and interesting building to visit. Bryggen is a MUST. Bergen should be included in every Trip to Norway because of Bryggen.

It's a UNESCO heritage site and it got an interesting history. Now it's all shops and restaurant and it's a great spot to take a stroll. Very photogenic at sunset too.

Certainly worth while a visit. Authentic houses in a beautiful setting. A walk in the narrow streets is definitely one of the things you should see/do in Bergen!

This is a UNESCO World Heritage site and not to be missed. The wharf buildings have been converted to shops but kept their character. Little alley ways can be seen with overhanging buildings.

This is a picturesque place but do pray for good weather, if not the sky will be too gloomy and the pictures will not turn out as nice.

If you visit Bergen, this is the first place to visit. The wooden houses are beautifully painted and some restaurants can be found in there
