Art meets the coast

Drive through mystical Bergen and you'll immediately understand why this is originally an artists' village. The light that shines through the trees, the leafy lanes and the unique location between the forest and dunes are a natural source of inspiration. And only three kilometres away is the seaside resort of Bergen aan Zee, where you can enjoy relaxing on the beach!

World of Art

Those who wish to admire art in Bergen are advised to visit Museum Kranenburgh. You will find work here by artists who were part of the Bergen School, including Lucebert, Colnot and Filarski, who in the previous century drew inspiration from this coastal village. During the summer months, the artists' colony holds famous markets around the Ru´nekerk.


Besides the art market you will also find countless boutiques, terraces and friendly restaurants surrounding the Ru´nekerk. The Bergerbos is home to the most attractively located cinema in the country: Cinebergen. After a film, you can walk or cycle straight into the forest or dunes! It is no surprise that many guests return to Bergen year after year and love staying overnight in one of the many charming accommodations that this village offers. Suitable accommodation can be found for all budgets.á
