Description

In the 19th century, Bergen was Europe’s largest wooden city, and its busy, steep and densely built-up streets, squares and alleyways gave it a unique character. There are also few large towns and cities that have experienced as many major fires as Bergen has. The appearance of the city has changed on many occasions, sometimes amidst great drama; at other times old
houses have been replaced by new buildings and majorr redevelopments. But Bergen has also taken care of its historic past.

Old Bergen is a reconstructed town with approx. 50 wooden houses from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Here you will find private homes from various periods, as well as a number of shops and workshops. Countless rooms and objects bring the city’s history over the generations to life. Old Bergen is an idyllic reminder of what Bergen used to be like, and a guided tour of the
houses is a fascinating, entertaining and family friendly experience.

Open museum shop and café.

Closed public holidays; 17 of May.
