Bergen

Bergen

From time immemorial Bergen has had an attraction for visitors, partly due to the situation of the village on the edge of dunes and nature. It is well over 1000 years old and built around the Ruined Church which dates from the 15th century. In and close to the centre there are historic buildings such as the Meerwijk villa park, built around 1915 in the style of the Amsterdam School. From time immemorial Bergen has been a village for artists who regard the peace and space as a source of inspiration; broad avenues with plenty of greenery and large residences hard up against nature. Works of the `Bergen School', the artistic movement named after the village, can be seen, with other things, in the Kranenburg Museum. There are still a great many artists in residence, exhibiting their pieces in the galleries and the artists' centre. Markets for art and objets d'art are held in the summer and in October there is the Ten Days of the Coast event. In July and August Holland Music Sessions is on the programme, a course for young international musical talent. The centre of Bergen has available terraces, cafes and restaurants - and, most important for the shopping enthusiast, small shops.

Five kilometres to the west is Bergen aan Zee, separated from the beach and the North Sea only by a line of dunes. The village lies in the middle of the natural beauty of the Schoorl Forestry Area and the Noord-Holland Dune Reserve. In summer the village is primarily a bathing resort with a freely accessible beach with a variety of facilities and a naturist area on the northern side. This village is recommended not only for bathing but also for surfing and catamaran sailing. In addition a marine aquarium has been established, which presents a picture of the denizens of the sea throughout the world.
