Floien where you will have an incredible view over the city of Bergen. It is also a great starting point for a hike. There are several recommended hikes on Mt. Floien. We do highly recommend you to buy your tickets in advance through the Floyen.no website. The queue for the Floibanen can be long, especially during summer time with a lot of ships in port.
