Take the Floibanen funicular to the top of Mount Fløyen! Check out the spectacular view of the city, play in the Troll Forest or walk exciting nature trails.

Fløyen / Fløibanen

If you are in Bergen, Fløyen (320masl.) is an absolute must visit! A trip with the funicular Fløibanen is a great experience, with the two traditional carriages that have transported people to the mountain for over 100 years. The tour starts in the heart of Bergen city centre and takes you to the top in approximately 6 minutes. There you will get a spectacular panoramic view over the city, fjord and mountains.

When you arrive at Fløyen you may sense the smell of freshly baked pastry. The charming Fløistuen shop and café offers pastries, ice cream, hot and cold drinks, as well as souvenirs and gifts. At Fløien Folkerestaurant you can enjoy a better meal with the city's finest view.

Children can have fun at the large playground or try an exciting obstacle course in the forest. Stroll through the mysterious Troll Forest if you dare… In the summer you can fly among the trees in the zipline or paddle a canoe at the idyllic Lake Skomakerdiket (for free). If you want a little more speed and excitement, you can rent a mountain bike with fantastic viewpoints along the way.

Mount Fløyen is last but not least the perfect starting point for hiking. Both shorter and longer hikes, for wheelchairs, strollers, young people and the elderly - Fløyen has roads and hiking trails that are suitable for everyone!

Feel free to take the ten minute walk from Fløibanen's top station to the Lake Skomakerdiket. Here you will find the newly built Skomakerstuen café where you can try the Norwegian “svele” and something to drink, with a beautiful view over the water.

PS. if you visit Fløyen in the summer, you have to say hello to the cuddly and slightly mischievous goats "Fløyenguttene".
