• Bryggen quarter


Bergen is permanently salted with robust cobbles and a rich sea-trading past. Bergen still wears her maritime heritage proudly — nowhere more scenically than at the picture-perfect Bryggen district, where colorful wooden warehouses line the harbor. Enjoy Bergen's market, then stroll the easy-on-foot old quarter, with cute lanes of delicate old wooden houses. A short foray into the countryside takes you to a variety of nearby experiences: a dramatic cable-car ride to a mountaintop perch, an evocative stave church, and the home of Norway's most beloved composer, Edvard Grieg.
