Many North Hollanders know that Bergen is one of the most exceptional coastal towns in the region. The woods, the sea and beach and dunes are outstanding. Yet there is also a lot to experience within the town itself. The town center of Bergen is just 2 minutes away by bike and you can visit the historic center of Alkmaar within 10 minutes by car.
And don’t forget the shops, boutiques, supermarkets, weekly art market and numerous restaurants and coffee places. Bergen has it all and there is more than enough to see. And if you do want to get away from picturesque Bergen for a while, the center of Alkmaar is only a 10 minute drive away.
