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).

Great place to get a good look of the area. The entrance is near the harbour. The view is amazing on a sunny day and you can relax and have a drink or meal and also walk around and hike in the mountain.

Great place to visit especially if a sunny day. Go early as the crowds build up by 10 and then gets very busy. Buy tickets at the base. This is a short walk from the Fish market. Short funicular ride up the mountain which offers great views over the bay and your cruise ship. You can hike back or ride... More

Stunning panoramic views of Bergen and the surrounding fjords from the top, great photo opportunities. There are lots of walks from the funicular going out in different directions into the forests and lakes, all clearly marked. All the routes we tried and the route down the mountain were on proper paths so no walking boots needed unless you want to... More

Once you are at the top keep going on one of the trails. We headed onward to a lovely little lake where we walked around that. There are lots of fun things up here for kids. Go on pretty day if possible and do not worry if the lines are long. The funicular moves people up and down quickly.

Very lovely walk up to the top, or for the less active, there is a funicular train that goes all the way up to the viewing point from a street behind the Hanseatic Wharf. The view from the top is fantastic, and there are some lovely trails signposted from the viewing point. Restaurants and gift shops at the top of... More

The ride up takes only a few minutes. Views of Bergen were beautiful. Bring the small kids as there is a playground. There are hiking trails and a lake with canoes. Bike rentals as well. We stayed only for the views but could easily spend most of a day there
