Bergen is a town in the northern Celle district on the Lüneburg Heath, in Lower Saxony, Germany. The town is divided into 12 districts: Becklingen, Belsen, Bergen, Bleckmar, Diesten, Dohnsen, Eversen, Hagen, Hassel, Offen, Sülze and Wardböhmen. The concentration camp Bergen-Belsen was located in the Belsen district.

The town has 13,505 inhabitants, according to the census (conducted in December, 2004). Members of the British military and their families, who were not included in the census, bring the actual population to about 16,000. These soldiers man a NATO base and training ground just outside the town. The Sieben Steinhäuser, a cluster of dolmens dating from the Stone Age, are located within training space.
