Hanseatic Museum in Bergen - Self-catering Norway
The Hanseatic Museum is situated in one of the old trade houses at Bryggen and has become a worthwhile attraction for those renting holiday cottages in Norway. The museum has old interiors from the 18th and 19th centuries and is one of the best maintained buildings in the city that you can see from your Norway holiday homes. The museum gives an excellent impression of the interior of a Hanseatic merchant's establishment with displays of weapons, domestic furnishings and equipment, mostly dating from the last days of the counting-house. The Hanseatic League was an alliance of trading guilds that established and maintained a trade monopoly along the coast of Northern Europe, from the Baltic to the North Sea, during the Late Middle Ages and Early modern period (13th–17th centuries).
Vist the Canning Museum
The Canning Museum is located in the premises of the former canning factory in a part of the city known as 'Gamle Stavanger' (Old Stavanger). From the 1890s to approximately 1960, the canning industry was Stavanger's most significant trade. The exhibition provides insight into the environment and the working conditions of the canning factories whilst you take holidays in our coastal cottages. The complete process, from the arrival of the fresh fish until the cans leave the factory, can be seen in detail. The city surroundings are also particularly attractive, so if you would like to explore the rest of the area, you should definitely consider self-catering in Norway on your next holiday.
Hardanger Folk Museum
Hardanger Folk Museum in Utne has various exhibitions highlighting fascinating elements of the country's customs, craftwork and past of the people. Permanent exhibitions and many well-known Norwegian paintings and art works are on display, making this a great opportunity for those interested in learning about the culture and history of Norway. There is also a café where you can sit down and relax on your self-catering holidays.
