ONE OF NORWAY’S MOST FAMOUS ATTRACTIONS
Visit Mount Fløyen of Bergen 

Fløibanen in Bergen is one of Norway's most famous tourist attractions and the only cable car of its kind in Scandinavia. You have not really seen Bergen before you ascend to the roof of Bergen on the Fløibanen funicular. This is a must for all visitors who want a full experience of Bergen!

 

From the top of Mount Fløyen you can enjoy a spectacular view of the city and its beautiful surroundings. Words can hardly do justice to this magnificent panorama. So make sure you ride Fløibanen before you leave Bergen. For a preview, look at our webcam with its view of Bergen. And don't leave our website before browsing our photo album with pictures from Bergen.

 

Need some breathing space after wandering Bergen’s cobblestone streets and visiting its museums? Fløyen is a nature retreat that offers fantastic opportunities for relaxation and recreation. The mountains around Bergen are excellent for hiking and exploring, at your own chosen pace. On top of Mount Fløyen there is a café and restaurant, and a playground filled with adventure for children.

 

Enjoy the beautiful bird’s eye view of the islands and fjords surrounding Bergen. Make sure to include this experience in your visit to “the city of seven mountains”!

 

Fløibanen’s lower station is located in the centre of Bergen, just a short walk from two of Bergen’s other famous attractions, the Fish Market and Bryggen. The address is Vetrlidsallmenning 21, but it’s easy to spot and everyone knows where it is. Mount Fløyen is well worth your visit! The ascent on the funicular takes only 5–6 minutes, lifting you up to the roof of Bergen, 320 meters above sea level.

 

We operate the funicular every day of the year, from early in the morning until midnight in the summer and 11pm in the autumn, winter and spring. (See the timetable.) On our website you will find detailed information about departure times and prices, practical information about what Mount Fløyen offers, a fascinating history of the Fløibanen funicular – and much more.

 

During seven intense weeks in autumn 2002, the funicular cable car Fløibanen enjoyed the most extensive refurbishment in its 84-year history. The aim was to offer travellers an even more impressive adventure – and it has definitely been a success! Read more about the new Fløibanen.
