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 view of Bergen. A must. We missed the entrance but got on half way up at another stop. The funicular is a fun way to travel. Simple and efficient. We went quite late in the day. Prob best to go early to make the most of the view.

The ride is brief, easy, comfortable, and reasonable in cost. Yes, the view from the top of the line is panoramic. But beyond that, your pleasure from this trip really will be what you make of it ...what you do next, and how much time and effort you want to put forth. My wife and I (ages 56 & 61... More

Floibanen was very nice and comfortable way to go up to Mound Floyen. It was very sunny evening and a landscape over the city of Bergen was more than amazing. Good sight.

Had a great run up the mountain, nice views of the city and great nature so close to the city. The way down was less interesting, but still nice.

The views from the top are spectacular. Also, if you walk back beyond the funicular on the trails you find an area with gnomes in the woods at unexpected places. It is quite charming. There is a gift shop but it was very crowded and I do not think there was anything you could not purchase down below.

Definitely do it! It's an easy trip up! If you can do it and watch the sunset, it's beautiful. Dress warmly or bring a jacket.....it can be cool, especially without the sun!

We took a cable car and go up to the mountain. The view was excellent! You can see big part of Bergen here! If you are lucky and you have good weather it's good place to visit!

Easy trip up on the funicular. Great views and a lovely walk in the snow. Spent the best part of 3 hours there. Could have walked down, but enjoyed the scenery on the way down.

A "must do" while in Bergen---a short cable car ride to the top and then a view meant for postcards. The cars run on a regular schedule making it easy to get up and back down. The restaurant was closed while we were there.

We bought a return ticket on a day where it had been snowing on and off, and thought we would go and view the sights while there were clear skies, not knowing what to expect. On the way there, several people boarded the funicular with taboggans and skis which left us perplexed until we reached to top and found a... More
