    Every Thursday in summer, an artist fair is held in the centre. Around the ruine church stands are placed along the road, displaying all kind of artistic craft.
    Last time we were there, the kids met a favourite children book writer.
    I saw this orange painting which would look great on my wall, too bad hubby didn t like it....

    Looks like a nice place to meet and drink and eat. Right on the big central square. Very modern, grand-café type.

  • Fabels

    Very much a Homes & Gardens feel in this restaurant. Which makes it quite popular and busy. I ate a toastie with goat's cheese and ginger which needed some upgrading with honey to make the blandness go away. So I asked for the honey separately. Big bowl of good mushroom soup.So a portion of samosas, a big orange juice, soup and a toastie amounted...

Bergen Transportation

    During summer, the roads round Bergen are cramped with cars loaded by folks that wanna go to the beach. What they forgot but what you know, by bike the beach is reached so much easier and in far less time.

    I love this road especially: the eternal lane from Bergen to Egmond.
    Trees lean over the road and on either side of the road big houses.

Bergen Shopping

    Home furnishing and women's fashion in this shop. Bergen is not the most modern of places. They go more for good quality, classic style, ouch-for-purse kind of stuff.

  • Toy shop

    First I go raving on about the special shops in Bergen and then I discover I made very few photos of them. In fact, this is a toyshop which you would find all over the country. Never mind... here it is!

Bergen Off The Beaten Path

  • Poet and writer A. Roland Holst

    The statue of a famous Dutch poet and writer, Roland Holst. Lived here from 9th November 1918 until his death in 1976. He became honorary citizen of Bergen in 1958.One of his books I remember reading was Deirdre and the sons of Usnach. Pretty dramatic, I recall.

    Gerrie Kneteman, 53, one of the world's foremost cyclists, died on November 2nd 2004, here in Bergen whilst cycling. Read the full story at the link below.

    There's a little anecdote to this.
    One of the international news stations said he died during a winter holiday in Norway. But of course, it wasn't Bergen, Norway, but Bergen, The Netherlands.

Bergen Favorites

  • Around the church

    Leafy, quiet, charming. That is how Bergen looked the day I visited. Just leave the modern central square as quickly as you can. Because that's horrid.

  • The church

    The church turns out to be a half ruin. I don't know when this happened and why but obviously it has not been rebuilt. Sensible, I think... Loads of info on Bergen
