Fløibanen - Panorama view over Bergen
Not far from Bryggen starts the Floibanen up to the nearly 400 m high Fløyberg.
It only takes 8 minutes by the Fløibanen to see all of Bergen.
848 m upward. With a speed of 6 m/s the gradient is between 15° to 26°.
It's early in the day and not many people on the huge platform.
Down there is the E39 which goes from Kristiansand up to Trondheim.
That small lake in the centre of Bergen is the Lille Lungegårdsvannet.
Over there from the port of Bergen also the Hurtig Routes to Finnmark start.
Who knows the song? Hint: Composed by Edward Grieg.
Quite a squeeze on the way back. Everyone wants the front.
And steeply back.
Well, if you are in the front seats of the Floibanen you have the greatest view of course.
There are two passing points. This one is called Fjellveien, the other one Promsgate.
There even is a station without exit, called Skansemyren, behind Promsgate.
We finish with a tunnel and then...
... see the crowd of late sleepers who are now waiting.
One last time to Bergen downtown to get supplies for our journey onward north.
