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).

The funicular is very popular with tourists and offers a charming view of the city center. The view from the top is spectacular on a sunny day. I recommend to buy one way ticket, because the walk back to city center is pleasant and easy (and also passable with a stroller). Once on top of Fløyen, proceed to Fløysletten to... More

It's Bergen's number 1 attraction here on TripAdvisor and there's no wonder, Mount Floyen is really breathtaking. The nicer the weather, the more beautiful pictures you'll get. Make sure to take a short hike once on the mountain before heading back to town, it's beautiful out there.

This place is beautiful, the only minus, on sunny days, is that the line to get the train to the top is very long, but the waiting time is really worth it. it you don't want to wit, you can walk up to the top. It takes about 1 hour, and is fitting for all ages.

I went up here with my adult daughter recently. We loved the panoramic views of Bergen on a cold, wintery day, but the amazing children's playground at the top really brought out the inner child in us! Picture two adults clambering all over the vast adventure playground laughing hysterically. Don't miss it.

Despite visiting on a very cloudy, wet, overcast day the funicular was well worth the journey. The views were beautiful (until the cloud covered the hill!)

Went up early at 9.30am and caught a wonderful sunrise across the bay, very few people were there and the views were magnificent. (A compliment here to the window cleaner who was cleaning the windows as we boarded, nothing worse than streaky windows for photography!)

My friend and I planned to do the hike up the mount floyen. But we were deterred by the rainy/ snowy weather at the end. We took the funicular up and down (90kr for a round trip) It started snowing when we were on our way up. The view is still great. Can still do a little hike to the... More

If you're looking to get the juices flowing in your hiking legs, this is a nice little urban hike up with frequent scenic viewpoints. You might pass some witches and trolls on the way.

A fun thing to do in Bergen when it's raining ;-). Great view from the top. It was nice to sit down for a bit after a lot of walking.
