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).

A trip with Fløybanen will give you a rush as you travel along the mountainside from the center of Bergen city. The view at the top is spectacular. You can also go on longer and shorter trips in the mountain. The paths are wide and well founded so you can even have the toddler with you in a wagon if... More

We had very limited time in Bergen so we couldn't wait for the mist to clear before going up on the Funicular. Although we didn't get the views of the city at the top, we did have a good time. Both our children enjoyed playing on the park and we all enjoyed the walk in the woods. The fact it... More

We visited whilst in port on a Fiord cruise. The railway is great but the view was nothing because of low cloud . The views would be spectacular on a good day.

A great way to see all of Bergen and the harbor high atop Mount Floyen. Just go on a clear day or you won't see much. It's was fun.

A long wait to buy tickets, which I should have bought in advance, but worth it once at the top. Trains run every five minutes, so once tickets are bought, the wait is short.

The city of Bergen had been blighted by several cruise ships on the day we arrived (ok, I admit, I was one of the hundreds of tourists who was on one of them) meaning that the chances of catching the funicular

Bergen is the rain capital of Europe, but we lucked out and found ourselves with a beautiful sunny afternoon. The funicular ride is quick and easy. We walked down following the signs for city center, it took about an hour.

We were here on a fine morning and had an excellent time. There are more than two mountain goats to be seen, and the views over Bergen are fantastic.

It would have been much nicer on a sunny day however we still enjoyed the view tremendously. The gift shop at the top was very nice. We purchased our tickets ahead on line which was really good because the line to buy tickets was quite long. We avoided the line and were able to go up on the next car.... More
