Bergen is traditionally known as an artists' village and was already known as the Bergen glory in the tenth century. The beautiful location on the forest and dunes, near the sea and the diversity in house construction gives Bergen a characteristic appearance. The light, the space and the leafy avenues inspire painters, writers and architects to create many beautiful things.
Walking through the village you will see galleries, well-stocked bookstores and museums that remind you that you are staying in an artists' village.
Forest and dunes
The village is located in the middle of a wooded area. Lovely to walk in this green setting, with or without a dog or horse. And before you know it, you can walk in the dunes to enjoy the beautiful surroundings (make sure you have bought a dune card for the PWN dune area).
In the village center, around the Ruins Church, you will find numerous shops, boutiques, terraces and welcoming restaurants. There is always something to do here. The shops are open every day and activities are organized all year round. Bergen is vibrant and a holiday destination for young and old!
