  • Visiting the Museum in the "Det Hanseatiske Museum og Schoetstuene" we've got a lot of information about the Hanseatic League during the nearly 90 minute visit. The Museum has many exhibits presented with engagement. The impression of the former living conditions and trade links will be delivered well.

  • Dried cod live in countries such as Germany for cod that can be caught in the ocean in the Bergen area, mainly merchants from Germany lived in Bergen. Is the Museum of history of Bergen has been built on trade, and presentation of the lives of local merchants and trade. I think if you have time to visit the internal buildings of the Museum building was built circa 1700, so should be visited only in appearance.
