Title : Bergen..
Map maker : BRAUN, G. / HOGENBERG, F..
Date : Cologne, 1590.
Size : 12.8 x 18.9 inches. / 32.5 x 48.0 cm.
Colouring : In original colouring.

Description :A spectacular, large, rare view of Bergen, from the famous 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum' of Braun & Hogenberg. Bergen was founded in 1070, during the warm medieval period, and showed strong fortifications.
In this view it is depicted from the southwest across Vgen Bay, which opens out onto Byfjord. From the dense welter of timber houses soars St Mary's, the Gothic cathedral attended by the German merchants (C), and the fortress of Bergenhus (A), the 13th century seat of the Norwegian kings.
The harbour is dominated by the Tyska Bryggen (German Quay), the quarter with the old mercantile houses and the sprawling quay; the numerous cranes and the ships allude to the flourishing trade conducted by the fourth-largest entrept in the Hanseatic League.
The wealth of Bergen, at the time the largest city in Scandinavia, was partly determined by the particular geography: having an impassable hinterland, Bergen could be reached only by sea.
