The climate in Bergen is mostly oceanic. The city experiences mild summers from June to August, cold winters from December to February, and has wet weather year round.

The nearly constant rain has given Bergen a reputation as Europe's rainiest city. Indeed, the city has some form of rainfall an average of 230 days of the year – however, it's not a constant downpour and some times of year have much lighter precipitation patterns than others. May is the driest month of the year and December the wettest.

Bergen's sky is frequently overcast and there aren't many sunshine hours, even in summer. When the sun does make a rare appearance, residents flock to parks, forests and fjords to enjoy the numerous outdoor activities Bergen has on offer.
