Bryggen - "The German Dock", is the Hanseatic quarter in Bergen, Norway. The Hanseatic merchants traded stockfish from Northern norway in Bergen between the 14th and 18th centuries CE and exported to the Hanseatic towns in the Baltic and on the European continent. In 1979, Bryggen became listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
