We took the Funicular up the mountain. I am a tourist so fall for all those tourist traps.. I definitely would not want to walk up Mount Floyen for anyone. Perhaps walk down but not up. You can see the whole area of Bergen. Great...More

What can be said ....this is simply the best view of Bergen. Catch the railway up....but walk down through the woods and the town...its only roughly 45mins but a beautiful, easy walk.

The trip up and back is very short, but once at the top you have a wow moment. The views are incredible and the walks around the mountain just brilliant. We had the extra joy of being there just after a fresh fall of snow...More

The ride up only takes about 10 minutes you may have to queue at busy times. The walk down can take between 40 mins to an hour depending on route the quick route is very steep and does your knees no good at all .
