The city of Bergen was founded by King Olaf in 1070. Bergen, then the capital, had a monopoly on the fish trade. In the 12th century, King SVERRE ordered the area of Brigan to be used as residence for aristocratic merchants; in 1350, the powerful Hanseatic League forces extended into this area, and they used the port to control the trade of various foods and raw materials, and moved along in Brigan. The narrow streets and the port are equal to each other to build residential houses. The most common feature of these houses is a three-story wooden building with a gable facade. The outside is connected by wooden boards to form a long building, and they collectively surround a courtyard. At the back of the courtyard, there is a small warehouse built of stone. In addition to storing food, it also has a fire prevention function.
The Hanseatic League Museum in Bergen is the earliest business association here in Norway. It is the earliest water transport business association here. It has a history of more than 200 years. The Hanseatic League Museum has many historical documents and precious cultural relics. It is worth visiting Appreciate and understand.
This is the earliest chamber of commerce in Europe. At that time, it was mainly based on maritime trade, and it was quite interesting. I feel that Europe was already quite affluent. The display restores the life at that time.
The Hanseatic League is a commercial and political alliance formed for commercial interests in some city-states in northern Germany. It was formed in the 13th century and reached its peak in the 14th century. The museum introduced the commercial situation at that time in detail.
This museum is close to the roadside. A row of small yellow buildings is not very large, but it shows the history of the Hanseatic League and some of the trade at that time. There are some physical materials at that time, which are still worth seeing.
