The Hanseatic Museum is one of the oldest wooden houses at Bryggen and the only one with authentic interior. The museum shows how the German merchants from The Hanseatic League lived and worked. The Hanseatic League (‘Hanse’) was a German trading company that operated in the North and Baltic Sea regions for several centuries. Between approximately 1360 and 1761, Hanseatic merchants from Northern Germany were running an office in Bergen’s Bryggen district. Their trading business was mainly based on exporting stockfish from Northern Norway and importing grain from the Baltic countries.
The Hanseatic Museum and the Schøtstuene assembly rooms were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979 as parts of Bryggen, the oldest part of the city. Bryggen is also home to the last authentically preserved wooden buildings of the Hanseatic League whereof The Hanseatic Museum is one of the oldest and best-maintained trading houses. The typical “gård” construction style with its characteristic long rows of houses has remained until today.
The Schøtstuene Museum, just behind Bryggen, shows the four assembly rooms and two kitchens from the Hanseatic period. Only in these buildings was open fire was permitted. Here the Hanseatic men had their hot meals and kept warm in winter. The buildings were also used for lessons, court sessions and festivities.
