A Tour of the Wharf and the Fortress

This is a private tour of Bergen in a historical perspective. You will have the opportunity to go for a walk at the Wharf, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The ancient gables and the narrow alleyways will make you feel like stepping back in time to the era when the Hanseatic merchants dominated Bergen's trade.
You will hear interesting stories about the stock fish trade, daily life in the Middle ages, and about the Wharf as a secret hide-out during World War II.
Additionally, you will see the Bergenhus Fortress, with old Medieval buildings, like the Rosenkrantz tower and the Haakon's hall.
