Weather in Bergen

Bergen enjoys relatively mild winters, thanks to the impact of the Gulf Stream, and cool summers. Temperatures in July are typically 19°C (67°F) whilst they fall to 3°C (38°F) in the winter. However Bergen’s proximity to the mountains causes abundant rainfall; it has been known as the ‘City of Rain’. Annual rainfall of around 89 inches is normal; one year, it rained for 85 consecutive days. Heavy rain can happen throughout the year.
