Bryggen is a historic harbor district in Bergen, one of North Europe’s oldest port cities on Norway’s west coast. It was a trade hub of the Hanseatic League—a medieval commercial and defense guild that controlled maritime trade in the North and Baltic Seas from the 14th to the mid-16th century. The old wharf is characterized by narrow rows of colorful wooden structures facing the harbor. Though many have burned down over the centuries, the structures have been rebuilt using traditional methods. Today, some 62 buildings remain of this former townscape. —Prepared by the World Tribune staff
