Egmond consists of three villages: Egmond aan Zee, Egmond aan den Hoef in Egmond-In. Egmond aan Zee has a history as a fishing village, that beginning 19and century increasingly turned into a lovely place to come and celebrate holidays.
It is still a family seaside resort where young and old feel at home, where it is lively, but the rest of the great outdoors. There are plenty of nice small recreational facilities in the area.
Throughout the year, visitors from within- and abroad to our town for a day trip or a long(is) stay. The municipality has to offer too much. Beach, forest, dunes, polder and charming villages are the biggest crowd pullers.
Our leisure, museums, hotels, pensions, campsites, shopping and many other things then connect.

Municipality of Bergen
Since 2001 three Egmonds are no independent municipality but under the name Bergen.
The municipality consists of several villages and hamlets that are: Aagtdorp – Bergen – Bergen aan Zee – Bregtdorp – Camperduin – Catrijp – Egmond-In – Egmond aan den Hoef – Egmond aan Zee – Greeting – Hargen – Rinnegom – Schoorldam and Schoorl – Wimmenum.
When the merger is expressly promised that every village should retain its own identity and that is very important for the people of Egmond.
