Brugen is located on the sea, 3km west of the city center of Bergen. Brugen means "the bank" in Norwegian. Most of the town's buildings are old wooden buildings, which are the places where famous ancient buildings are concentrated. These wooden houses, restored to the past, with three floors of houses, long narrow windows, steep roofs, gables are made of wood, the huts generally have a sarcophagus basement. There is also an open air museum of 35 18th-19th century wooden houses, which showcase the town's old style.
The most iconic attraction here is the Bryggen Pier, which is composed of an ancient Hanseatic pier and colorful wooden buildings. But when you have been to Copenhagen and Tromso, you find that there are such colorful wooden houses in rows everywhere. If you ask me where is the most beautiful, I will choose Bergen without hesitation.
Nice pretty small town with the instantly recognizable colourful conserved buildings. Easy to walk around on foot. Rained a lot though when we were there!
The row of colorful wooden houses on the front of Bryggen Pier is Bergen’s business card. These colorful huts with different heights and colors form a district of their own. They were once an important business transaction location in the dock area. They have a very simple and robust structure and are a unique scenery of the coastal port. Now, it has been recognized as a world cultural heritage, and the interior has been transformed into a variety of tourist souvenir shops.
This is probably the most concentrated and lively tourist product sales area on the west coast of Norway, so students who need to chop their hands may wish to spend some time here to stroll around. Here you can buy many unique derivatives of Norwegian mountain monsters. These dwarfs with big eyes, nose and feet are the most proud products of the Norwegians. Although they look ridiculous, they are regarded as kind-hearted forest elves.
Bergen Bryggen Wharf is a typical Nordic harbour wharf. On the seaside of the wharf, there are 1 colorful herringbone wooden houses, very beautiful. Especially at sunset and dusk, the sun shines on the sea on the pier, which is really warm.
The city of Bergen is located on the west coast of Norway. It is not only a famous concentration of ancient buildings, but also the only example of the Hanseatic League overseas business. It is also a valuable relic of the initial stage of urban development and Nordic wooden architecture. Bergen is the second largest harbor city in Norway. The King of Norway established its capital here in 1070. In the 12th century, German merchants held the real power of trade here. Bergen prospered as an important place for East-West trade. There is a German business hall built in the 14th century in Dongcheng, which was once the residence of German merchants. So it is called "German Terminal"
