It really is a good idea to go with a guide to the medieval part of Bergen. There are twists and turns through the houses not to mention within the museums that the tour visits: the Bryggens Museum, the Hanseatic Museum, and the ancient town...More

Starting at the main Bryggen museum, this tools us through the history of Bryggen in particular and how it came to be today. There was not a lot of walking involved in this tour to be honest, given the small condensed nature of this area,...More

This 90 minute tour is a must for any history buff. Starting at the beginning, you learn about the early origins (at the Bryggen Museum)- then, how in the 1100s Bergen evolved into one of the worlds most active ports. You learn of the devastating...More
