The top of the mountain provides wonderful views of the sea, the city, fjords, and other mountains. There is also a restaurant, shop, playground, and network of hiking trails at the top of Mt. Floyen. The oldest mechanized method of getting to the top of Mt. Floyen is via the funicular, which starts just blocks from Bergenhus Fortress and Bryggen wharf. There is also a walking & biking trail that goes to the top of the mountain and then continues to Ulriken Mountain. The funicular is open from 7:30AM to 11PM.
Edvard Grieg Museum
One of the most notable composers in the world was Norwegian Edvard Grieg. His former home, known as Troldhaugen, is now a museum dedicated to his life and works. The house was built in 1885 and is where he would sit and compose many of his masterpieces.

One of the top activities to do in Bergen is Stoltzekleiven, a steep trail that leads up to Sandviksfjellet. The start of the trail is approximately 30 minutes from city center, which is good because you'll want to get your legs warmed up for the climb. The way to the trail is signed. Once you get to the start there are 722 steep steps to conquer before reaching your reward phenomenal views of Sandviken and Byfjorden. Most people continue to Mt. Floyen upon reaching the top; from here it is about 40 minutes of mostly easy walking (compared to what you just did) to the restaurant and funicular at Mt. Floyen.
When people think of visiting the Norwegian fjords they usually think of exploring via cruise ships or hiking. But you can also get some breathtaking aerial views if you're up for it. Paragliding over Voss isn't for everyone but is well worth it. You'll start off with a short flight lesson from your pilot and be transported to the start. Strap in, sprint down the launch hill, jump, then let your pilot do all the work while you just enjoy the view. You'll see the farms, glaciers, towns, and fjords like only the eagles do.
