Bergen (nh) is a special spot in the Netherlands. Close to the woods, heather blossoms and the North Sea – the area is steeped in history and alive with culture. A mix of artists and business people, together with thousands of tourists every year, make for a particularly interesting and varied community.
While it is a pleasure discovering the area, it can sometimes be a challenge navigating, especially if you are not a native Dutch speaker. As such, MyBergenOnline.com was created in 2010 by Kim, a lady from the Western United States. After living in Bergen for a while, she saw an opportunity to assist the international community with obtaining helpful information and advice about living in the area.
Since July 2012, this website has been taken over by me. I lived 4 years in Alkmaar, a town which is just 6km away from Bergen, and moved to Bergen very recently.
This website will continue to be a source of help for newer residents and visitors in the Bergen area, and perhaps a source of renewed inspiration for those who have been here longer.
If you have any comments, or ideas for topics – I would be happy to hear from you.
See you in the neighborhood!
