Fjord Norway Vestland BERGEN

Walking down from Fløyen til Bergen city centre

  • Fløyfjellet, Bergen
  • +47 55552000
  •  /  km From You

A walk suitable for all ages! Enjoy the beautiful views and windy roads from Mount Fløyen down to the city center.

If steep climbs are not for you, you can take the Fløibanen funicular up to the top and walk down to central Bergen. This is a popular walk suitable for people of all ages, and it takes around 1 hour (or less if you are a fast walker). Needless to say, you can walk up to Fløyen too - it just takes a bit longer.

If you have a stroller or buggy, or young children, it’s no problem - you’ll easily get a place for the buggy on the Fløibanen, and then walk down to Bergen city centre.

The Fløibanen funicular has several stops on its way up the mountainside. If you don't feel up to walking the whole way down, you can take the funicular halfway down to Fjellveien for example and take the last bit of the the journey by foot. This is especially useful in the winter when it can easily get icy up top.

On this walk you will have a golden opportunity to take great pictures of fantastic views and charming old wooden buildings.

The route winds its way down from the mountain with many twists and turns, but it is easy to find your way. On your way down, make sure you leave plenty of time to relax on one of the many benches along the way. They are placed so that you can really take in the great view.

When you are almost at the bottom, you will set eyes on the lovely Skansedammen. In winter it’s frequented by people going ice skating. In the summer, the beatiful lake is a popular picnic spot. Maybe you could round off your walk with a picnic too?

If you like walking in the mountains, we also recommend these hikes around Bergen’s seven mountains.
