The light that reflects on the sea, the shadow play in the forest and the endless view over the meadows, the surroundings of Bergen have been the inspiration for many artists for centuries. Contemporary artists are still inspired by the sea, dunes and forests, and have settled here temporarily or permanently. In addition, many museums, galleries and events can be visited in Bergen and the surrounding area. Bergen is a true oasis for the coast and culture lovers.
