Crispy weather on a Monday morning is the perfect ingredient for an early perfect hike, therefore Fløyen is definitely a must if you’re ever in Bergen! By taking the funicular railway to Mount Fløyen, in just 8 minutes you are going to be able to enjoy the beautiful view over the ciry and see all of Bergen in detail!
The Funicular railway, which runs daily from early in the morning until 11 PM and can be taken from the city centre (150 metres from the famous Bryggen), takes you to a must-see area of fantastic natural surroundings and chill atmosphere! If you’re feeling extra fancy, you could hike all the way up and back, and then up and back again. There are innumerable opportunities for walking and hiking, so there is something to choose from for everyone and every fitness shape. I took the railway up and then walked all the way down, as I always do.
At Fløyen, besides admiring the beautiful view and taking 124328876 photos, you can also enjoy a great meal or a delicious dessert at their restaurant/cafe. There is also a souvenir shop where trolls and the national flag, but mostly trolls, dominates the territorium, and a safe play area for the juniors.
I’ve really enjoyed my hike as always! I never get tired of looking over the city from Fløyen, it’s such a pretty place I really recommend if you are ever in Bergen. It’s totally worth it!
All in all, Fløyen is a great experience, the trip up to the mountain is a magnificent experience in itself, but also the perfect way to start off your day! Energized and happy // a shower and a tasteful lunch is all I need now!
I promise, I was not the one to put this sign up even if you did think that! I mean, I would. ha ha
