Bryggen - the Wharf in Bergen is known worldwide as one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites, the centre of historical Bergen and a must for any visitor to Bergen. From the 13th to the middle of the 18th century, life at the Wharf was dominated by the Hanseatic- German traders. It was a male-dominated community, where the Hanseatics had their own laws and educational system. Special assembly rooms or "Schøtstue" was used for common meals. There are only four of them left today, one of them you will find at Bryggen Tracteursted - from 1708- this one is protected and the only one left at its location of origin. At Bryggen Tracteursted you will find a modern kitchen inspired by the traditions from Bergen and Hanseatic kitchen.
