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).

There is a light rail to go to the mountain view point but the road to walk up is very good as well. Who are not regular hikers will be able to walk up in 1 hour. Try to be at the top when it's time for sunset. It's an excellent view of the city by the sea.

If the weather is clear (and it was the day of our visit) this should be on the top of you list of things to do in Bergen. Although not listed I asked for a senior discount for my mom, my wife and I all at least 65 years and was sold a senior ticket. Check the weather forecast though... More

You should not miss this attraction, for £9 return its well worth the money. The short 5 min ride takes you high about Bergen, the views are fabulous. There are walks further up the mountain to even more spectacular views. Cafe at top well received.

Took our friends for a trip to Bergen and the trip up to Fløien. Beautiful view of the Bergen. With the weather comes the beautiful view so don't mind a bit of rain.

One of the best ways to experience Bergen and any trip wouldn't be complete without a trip up the funicular. Just a short 5minute walk up from the fishmarket (centre) takes you up to the top with a choice of return or single tickets (the walk down takes about 45minutes). Very lovely at the top with lots of walks for... More

I only wish I had planned more time. There was a line to go up, but it was quick enough, even though we were lined down the street, it really only took 15 minutes to get onto the funicular. The view is spectacular and finding the trolls in a garden was a delight. The nature walks around the top of... More

the ride up was pretty fast. only gripe is there's no toilet at the bottom of the ticket counter. this is one of the things i don't like abt Europe - the toilet situation. there's hardly any toilet available. even at malls, their toilet is not available at every level and we gotta pay for it even for consumers who...

Well worth it for the Spetacular views and beautiful trees . Walks and treks of varying lengths and difficulty signposted at visitor centre . So easy to access... More

We got the Bergen card which gives you a 50% discount on the Funicular up and down. We decided we would take the Funicular up and hike back down. It was a great decision. There were great views from the top of Mount Floyen and multiple hiking trails to choose from. Getting back down involved taking a lot of switchback... More
