Owner description: Fløyen is a must do while in Bergen. Fløibanen, the funicular brings you up the hillside, from Bergen city centre to the top of the mountain in 6 minutes. At Mount Fløyen you will find beautiful views of Bergen, the nearby islands, fjords and mountains surrounding Bergen. Fløyen is a great destination for hiking, mountain biking and soft adventures. We are surrounded by hillsides, mountains, forests, nice little lakes and numerous trails. We offer daily guided hikes “Hiking Mount Fløyen" and Mountain bike rental from mid June until mid August. We love children, and the children love Fløyen. Let the kids explore our playground, Fløysletten climbing playground, the Troll forest. Try out canoe paddling at lake Skomakerdiket (mid June - mid August), feel the adrenalin rush in FløyenKids ziplinepark and get at kiss from our lovely goats at Fløyen. Fløistuen shop and cafè have souvenirs, perfect gifts and memories from Bergen and Norway. We offer local food as “Fløyenbollen", the cinnamon-bun and our organic soup “Fløyensuppen". Fløien Folkerestaurant is open daily from May until September.

“picturesque view of Bergen”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

The Funicular was a fun way to get up to the top of Mount Floyen, which provided a great view of Bergen. We did a one-way trip and then walked back down to town (only do that if your knees are okay!). There is a large park with different trails at the top of the funicular, a kids playground, a gift shop and a beautiful restaurant. A nice place to relax, see Bergen, and visit nature.

“Great view of the city and harbor!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

It was a lot of fun to walk down from the top on one of the many paths. And do look in the forest -- people have carved gnomes into the trees.

“Great views for all”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

This is a 'MUST SEE' attraction when you visit Bergen - do not miss it!!
This attraction was so easy to reach, right in the town centre. Even though there were lots of visitors it only took a few minutes to purchase tickets (80k return - a bargain!!) and get on the train which is completely accessible with a special area for wheelchairs.
Once up on the mountain the views over Bergen are breathtaking and with well placed ramps wheelchair users can access viewing points independently - FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!
There are several paths that can also be negotiated by wheelchairs, a little help may be needed sometimes, but this is the most wheelchair friendly viewpoint I have ever visited.
We spent well over an hour up here and had to pull ourselves away as we had other things to see and only a few hours before our ship departed.
