Bergen Scottish Society

Guided historical walk

Wednesday 8th September - Kong Oscars gate

The theme for this year's byvandring was Kong Oscarsgate and Karlfaret: Centre for the poor and sick in Bergen in the years 1600–1900

We were fortunate with the weather; it was a beautiful autumn evening for the walk. Historian Chris Harris shared his wealth of information during the evening, starting with a tour of the former leprosy hospital at Kalfarveien 31, then moving on towards town, ending at Domkirken. Afterwards several members retired to Dyveke's on Hollendergate for refreshments.
