Fodor's Expert Review Bryggen

Bryggen and Nordnes Building/Architectural Site Fodor's Choice

A trip to this merchant city is incomplete without a trip to the historic Hanseatic harborside, Bryggen. A row of mostly reconstructed 14th-century wooden buildings that face the harbor makes this one of the most charming walkways in Europe, especially on a sunny day. Several fires, the latest in 1955, destroyed some of the original structures. Today the old houses hold boutiques and restaurants. Bryggen has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979.
