Amazing views on the city and all the fjords around!

Take the cable car up and go down by foot - just be careful to stay on the marked path (which we didn't and ended up going through bushes but it was still great fun!)

Fantastic trip. Breathtaking cable car journey and amazing views at top. Beautiful cafe at top. Hot chocolate a must on cold day. Best place to see the whole of Bergen from above.

This was the final port of call on our cruise. An interesting cable car ride and some wonderful views of Bergen and the mountain scenery around.

Having taken the 2/3 bus from near the fish market, we took the steepest path from the base cable car station to the top as we wanted to get the view asap. There appeared to be quite a lot of difference in the difficulty of the walks to the top and the red route requires sturdy footwear (especially for the... More

Took the toughest way uphill and was blessed with fantastic weather and view on the top. Nice restaurant with 360 degrees view, really good food and a glass of wine. Been here several times, and you can also take the gondol to the top and walk down if you like, or gondol both ways.

This maybe combine the best of Bergen. After seen the town from "floor level" you can have a great view of Bergen from 643 above sea level. Remember good footwear if you are fitted to walk all the way up/down (recomended).
