Norwegian term or phrase: Bryggen
I need help for the pronunciation of 'Bryggen', which would be transliterated in the text.

Thank you very much.

Explanation:
According to the source below, but I'd say we need confirmation from someone who knows Norwegian:

We drove to the wharf area, directly across the harbour from the area known as Bryggen (pronounced BREW-gun). For 400 years, from the 1300's to the 1700's, Bergen was a major port in the Hanseatic League, and the Bryggen area was a community of 2000 Germans surrounded by 8000 Norwegians.
