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.

Bergen is one of the most picturesque cities on the west side of Norway, sitting on water. The architecture is very unique - from the 1500 and 1600 Hapsburg Dynasty era. The Funicular is a great way to get an aerial view of this unique city. We walked the waterfront and the city streets for a couple of hours before... More

We took our 2 year old son on a trip to the top of Mount Foyle with this Funicular ride. Amazing experience I must say as the views were breathtaking along the way and on the top. There is a lot to do on the top although we didn't have much time to enjoy those. Recommend this to all.

Didn't realise prior to arriving in Bergen how much rain it gets (one restaurant menu suggested 266 days of rain per year!) We were so glad the rain and clouds lifted for our final day so we could take the Floibanen to the top to get a great view. Our Bergen pass covered the cost of the return ticket. Once... More

The funicular is a tad pricey, but a great way to get up the hill quickly and view the entire city. Great vantage point and the ride is nice and smooth. There's a nice playground at the top for families with kids.

Bergen isn't all that big so this is a good attraction. Gives you a great view of the bay. You can also walk down from the top using a nice dirt path.

Definitely a must add to your itinerary, preferably on a clear day which I had luckily. View from the top was great, and the railway was also interesting. I can't recall the price exactly but I think it was roughly $15AUD. Coffee available at the top and there is a restaurant and cafe and lots of walks to enjoy.

I arrived just minutes before the next tram which apparently is lucky as the lines can get very long in summer. The ride up is of course very smooth and relatively quick. They stop a couple times so locals can get on if needed. The view from the top is fantastic and well worth the small price of admission. It... More
