  • If this is one of Norway's main attractions there is a reason! With an active funicular train every half hour you climb to the top of a hill from which you can see the city of Bergen and have a view of the fjord within which the town is located. Once you're at the top, you wouldn't go down. The best time is towards evening, with the setting sun and the lights on that make everything more magical.
