There’s so much to do in Bergen, you will find yourself spoiled for choice when it comes to historical or cultural attractions. The city’s art museums are amalgamated under an umbrella institute known as KODE, and they come together to form one of the largest art-and-design collections in the whole of Scandinavia. The works are distributed between 3 architecturally unique buildings that line the Lille Lungegard lake, each one having a slightly different focus. Amongst the many masterpieces held by code, you can expect to find works by Picasso, Munch and Nikolai Astrup. Bryggen, Bergen’s oldest quarter, runs along the Vagen Harbour on the eastern shore and features parallel rows of gabled buildings, which date from after the 1702 fire and retain a 12th century building style. The Bryggens Museum is an archaeological museum that has been built on the foundations of the city’s first settlement, over 800-year-old foundations that were unearthed during construction and have since been incorporated into exhibits.
