Why Have a Ride on the Floibanen Funicular

Floibanen Funicular, officially opened in January 1918, is one of Bergen’s and Norway's most visited attractions, carrying almost 2 million passengers annually.

The funicular starts its way from the city center, and 6 minutes later you find yourself at 320 meters above sea level, on the top of Mount Fløyen.

There're only 2 cars, each having its own name and color: blue Blåmann and red Rødhette. Getting up to Mount Fløyen, you will find the best playground in the city and a restaurant and well as have a chance to enjoy the most beautiful view over Bergen and the fjords around it. Some even claim that you haven’t visited Bergen if you haven’t climbed to at least one of the 7 mountains that surround the city.

The funicular ride in itself is a memorable experience as the 844 meters (2769 ft) long track varies between 15 and 26 degrees and provides stunning Norwegian panoramas. As for the timetable, you can take a ride on the funicular from the early morning to 11 p.m. during the whole year.
