  • The top of Fløyen mountain. You can walk up or take the Fløybanen funicular that takes you up to the mountain top. Better to take just one way up, and make up your mind on the top if you want to get down by car (as there's no discount for a round way ticket), as the walk down is easy, doesn't take too long, and offers new breathtaking views of Bergen. 75 NOK one way for adults. Totally worth it. You'll find a few restaurants up top, some playgrounds, lots of breathtaking views of Bergen, beautiful nature and the lovely mountain goats. A must for any Bergen visitor.
  • The top of Fløyen mountain. You can either walk to top(40-50 minutes route from Bryggen, depending on the route you choose) or you can ride the Fløybanen funicular that takes only 8 minutes to reach to the top. We hiked both ways, up & down.From the top, the view of Bergen and the fjord is breathtaking! There’s two caffe, gift-shop, ice cream shop as well a children’s park(Trolle park), you can also spot lovely mountain goats roaming around in the nature, if you are in luck. In the surrounding woods, we spotted quirky wooden statues, a mountain stream, small waterfalls(caused by recent rainfalls) and the nature view is spectacular! A must for any Bergen visitor.
