Zachariasbryggen (The Warf of Zacharias) is today one of the largest collections of restaurants, cafes, pubs and other entertainment sites in Bergen. It is a rebuilt complex located at Shetlands-Larsens Brygge. This was formerly known as Torgutstikkeren and is at the end of the old harbour in Bergen, Vågen.
In previous times Zachariasbryggen had various functions connected with the harbour and Fish market etc, but it was torn down a number of years ago to make way for a broadening of the street.
The picture above is from around 1900 (Picture courtesy of The University Library at The University of Bergen) and shows what it looked like then. However, it was rebuilt some years ago.
Today it also contains other shops and businesses. Here we see it from the west (Strandkaien)
In Bergen you can of course see it slightly from above.
Or even more from above.
