Bergen, the famous old hanseatic town was our last shore leave on our trip through Norway. Of course our first way led us to Bryggen. This is the district with the historic hanseatic houses directly at the harbor. Strolling through the narrow alleys and seeing the old warehouses and shops, you really feel as if you were back in the days of the merchants 700 years ago. It is not without good reason that Bryggen is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Afterwards we visited the former fortress Bergenhus and the fortress museum. For me it meant sitting quietly in my travel bag again. My human dad is used to embracing history when he sees it and he does not want to be disturbed at all.
Inside the fortress is also the famous Haakons Hall. It is considered the oldest throne room of Norwegian kings.
In the afternoon we took the cable car up to the Floyen. From up there you have a wonderful view of the city and the harbor. We went down on foot, for which we were rewarded with further interesting views.
On our way back to the city we passed large linden trees, all of which had been given a knitted dress. In an art project in 2017, the trees were given this fashionable clothing. Nice, nice.
