Bergen, easily; damper, snowier, and squallier.

Both are pretty nice climates in their own way.

Helsinki has a slight edge for having more defined seasons and colder winters despite Bergen having better precipitation and sunlight hours.

Bergen: 55.0% / E
Helsinki: 69.9% / C-

Bergen is far too gloomy and wet year round, and in addition to its poor summers with little chance for any real heat has mediocre winters.

Helsinki's winters are excellent, but it still has subpar summers and is too dry year round. Nevertheless, it's far better than Bergen, and is a mediocre climate as opposed to a poor one.

Helsinkis Summers are probably significantly warmer if same time periods were used.

Both are a fail for me - too cold and too high latitude. If I had to chose it would be Bergen for being warmer.

Definitely Bergen. I prefer Helsinki's summers, but it has quite poor transitions (March is a winter month, and Sept. is already cool) and 'biting' continental as opposed to cool/rainy winters. Bergen is astonishingly mild! Warmer mean temperature than my climate at 45N!

Temperatures only tell part of the story especially for the summer.

Summer is noticeably nicer in Helsinki.

Bergen is a lovely city but for many people it barely has a summer to speak of.

Helsinki does not have dream summers but is in the acceptable range for most people.
