The Floibanen funicular in Bergen is one of Norway's best-known...

The Floibanen funicular in Bergen is one of Norway's best-known attractions. Floibanen can be found in the heart of Bergen, 150 m from Fisketorget - the fish market - and Bryggen wharf, and it takes just 10 minutes to walk to the lower station from where the cruise ships dock along Bryggen. The journey up to Floyen (320 m above sea level) takes 5-8 minutes. The journey is an experience in itself, and at the top you can enjoy fantastic views over Bergen. Check out the view right now from our webcam of Bergen seen from Floyen.

There are endless opportunities for walks on Floyen, and you will also find a cafe, restaurant and children's playground. The funicular runs daily all year round from early morning to late evening (check our departure times).

Winter trip. Not really dressed for a hike in the snow so didn't explore too much. Got to the lake which was pretty. The play grounds were great. Pretended to be on troll hunt so the little one loved looking out at the rocks and through the trees. The view was awesome. Got lucky that it was a clear 10... More

It was beautiful up there, I could just get lost in that forest for hours and hours. Troll village is pretty cool, and the journey is nice and easy.

You can't miss this if you are in Bergen. But be prepared to stand in line for an hour or so in the weekends. Nice and interesting ride with the cablecar to the top of Mount Floien. From there you can walk or bicycle back down, or to the next mountain. There is a fun playing ground for the kids... More

There was minimal queuing and we waited only 15 minutes for the car. Plenty of space but the stairs into and out of the car were a little steep. Easy access for wheelchairs with a lift available. Brilliant views from the top and there are also over 20km of walks up there. Not to be missed.

We decided to visit Mount Floyen after income to the city centre. In Information centre near the Fish Market we found out, the way up by walk is just one hour. It was nice path and really just the walk. At the beggining we started to make a pictures of beautiful view and we were lucky because after one hour... More

Beautiful and peaceful views. Fun for the whole family! We did not do any of the hikes and instead choose to play on the playground at the top of Mount Floyen and to tour the Troll Village. Family-friendly fun!

This was a fun and touristy morning out. The rise up the mountain takes about 10 minutes and is very comfortable. Once up on the mountain there is a restaurant and cafe. There are quite a few easy walks through the forest and around a lovely lake. Even in March there is quite a lot of snow! If you're feeling... More

I wasn't so lucky with the weather, but I got up to the top even in the foggy-rainy winter, and when I had 2 seconds without something that coveres the panorama, it was spectacular :)

Great view over Bergen! We had been lucky and the weather was warm and sunny. Enjoyed a glass of Irish stout on the terrace!
