Scandinavian Port City
Bergen’s historic wharf district, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has been prominent since the heyday of the Hanseatic League, the regional trading group that thrived between the 1300s and 1800s. The waterfront is defined by a row of colorful wooden buildings with prominent gables and steep roofs, with the oldest dating back to the early 1700s (previous structures were destroyed in fires). Originally warehouses for storing stockfish (air-dried fish) and grains, today the buildings are a collection of museums, shops, and other businesses.
