Bergen
Bergen is a perfect launch point for exploring western Norway's stunning fjords and glaciers, including Hardangerfjord and Sognefjord. In the city, take advantage of free bus travel and discounted admission prices with a Bergen Card. An important Viking stronghold and seat of the mediaeval kingdom until the 14th century, bustling Bergen's highlights include its Fish Market, Aquarium and funicular railroad up Mount Floyen, as well as Troldhaugen, the museum dedicated to composer Grieg (a former resident).

Floibanen can be found in the heart of Bergen, 150 m from Fisketorget - the fish market - and Bryggen wharf, and it takes just 10 minutes to walk to the lower station from where the cruise ships dock along Bryggen. The journey up to Floyen (320 m above sea level) takes 5-8 minutes. The journey is an experience in itself, and at the top you can enjoy fantastic views over Bergen. Check out the view right now from our webcam of Bergen seen from Floyen. There are endless opportunities for walks on Floyen, and you will also find a cafe, restaurant and children's playground. The funicular runs daily all year round from early morning to late evening (check our departure times). less
