Min Engel in Bergen

by Scandinavian mum

Bergen is one of the most beautiful cities in Norway, and is really worth a visit. In addition to stunning nature, delicious seafood and friendly people they also have great shopping.
One of my absolute favourite children fashion shops is located in Bergen, Min Engel (My Angel).

Min Engel, founded in 2003, stock sought after Scandinavian design for children, everything from clothing and shoes to interior items, toys and accessories. Labels you’ll find at Min Engel is Bisgaard, Chill Norway Christina Rohde, Gulp, Lille Barn, MeMini, Mini A Ture, Molo, Noa Noa Miniature, Norlie, Petit Nord, Ticket to Heaven, Wheat, Lisbeth Dahl and Maileg.
It’s run by the two “angels” Gunn and Hilde, two lovely ladies who know all about customer services in addition to being update on the latest fashion for our kids up to 12 years.

Some spring news, dress from Rohde and matching shoes from Bisgaard.


Min Engel have a lovely and very unique shop you can visit. If you do not happen to be in Bergen you can visit their online shop. Or simply follow their very inspirational blog. They flash some seriously nice pictures of all items they stock in the blog.
If you spot something you want you can simply email them with your request and they will be happy to help.
