Its North Sea beaches make it a popular destination for tourists. The town of Bergen developed around a chapel and is mentioned as far back as the tenth century as well.
An old local legend is the “Miracle of Bergen”, which is said to have occurred during the St. Elisabeth’s Flood of 1421. On the site where the miracle of Bergen is said to have happened, a chapel was erected. In the fifteenth century, the Ruïnekerk (“Ruined Church”) was built on the site of the chapel. In 1574 the church was looted and burned down by Dutch Protestants, but was later rebuilt to its current state. In this short video I will drive through the village of Bergen and we will see the “Ruined Church” there.
