Meet your guide and walk to Bryggen Wharf, built by the Hanseatic League of merchants back in the Middle Ages. They were very powerful -- an early example of collective bargaining -- and did a great deal of trade with the fishermen of northern Norway. At the peak of their power (1350-1550), the Hanseatic merchants held a monopoly on the fishing industry and wielded significant political power in Bergen. They built some lovely warehouses here, and you'll see these today.
Next, move on to the Fish Market, where it is clear that the heyday is over, but the fun is well underway.
An Ice Bar has cropped up in Bergen -- your chance to enjoy an ice-cold welcome and a drink in an environment where everything is made of the cold stuff.
Head back to the ship after your tour.
