Bergen’s Bryggen Old Docks Unesco Site Photos

Hi, it’s Jack Wolfpac, back with the second part of yesterday and today’s double-day simultaneous Bergen city blogcast with the travel25years blog. Today, that blog has (link to site) colourful photos of some sparkling buildings in Bergen’s UNESCO site old docks of Bryggen, while this blog focuses on the greenygrey ones in and around Bryggen.

Bergen’s Bryggen and Neighbouring Areas Photos 

The second and third photos are from the Old Town a little behind Bryggen, and fourth and fifth towards the pedestrian area from Bryggen, but all are either in Bryggen or within easy walking distance.

After my camera ran out of batteries on Day 3 I returned on Day 4 to get the other side of the people’s monument, which is photo 4.

Greenygrey Interesting Background Features

Eagle-eyed greenygreyliens might spot a double greenygrey in this double-day blogcast in photo 5, with the statue in the foreground and roof in the background.

In photo 6 you can see the Floibanen funicular in the background. This is a popular tourist attraction providing transport up to Mount Floyen (320 metres) for a good view over Bergen.

Bergen is Burgundy and Greenygrey in Norway

Hi, it’s Jack Wolfpac, legendary travel correspondent at the Greenygrey. When I travelled to Bergen recently I expected it to be all burgundy coloured. So I was delighted to see there was a fine selection of greenygrey. Maybe it’s Burgundy in France that is burgundy?

Bergen Greenygrey Photos

In a double-day simultaneous blogcast with Marc Latham’s travel25years blog we’ve divided the photos into pre-Bryggen (the UNESCO site old docks) today, and Bryggen tomorrow; and greenygrey photos here and non-greenygrey ones over at the travel25years blog; although there is some greenygrey in those too!

So hopefully you’ll visit both sites on both days… there’s also a Bergen south blog preceding today’s blog over on travel25years that I haven’t had time to report here; and it includes a sunbeam through storm photo I like.

But don’t rush over yet, because here’s our pre-Bryggen greenygrey Bergen photos (you can see larger images by clicking on the photos):
