About Bergen

An intimate artist’s village on the coast which turns into a tourist hub in summer. The first wednesday in August is the traditional Evening of Light, where all the residents of Bergen decorate their gardens with hundreds of lights. To the north of the village of Bergen lie the Schoorlse Duinen (dunes). This vast nature reserve is home to the highest and widest dunes in Holland. In some places the dunes reach a width of five kilometers, so it is the perfect place to go for long relaxing walks.
