Be entertained year round
Bergen keeps a cultural calendar full of shows and events for every month of the year, so it won't be hard to find things to do on your vacation. The year ends with a traditional Christmas market downtown, but guests will find plenty of things to keep them entertained throughout the year leading up to winter wonderland snow and the essential mulled wine drink ‘glogg’ in December.
