De syv fjell “The Seven Mountains”

Bergen is located between seven mountains. Of all of them, Fløyen is the most easily accesible. A cable car called Fløibanen starts in the city center and brings you to the top in around fifteen minutes. However, it is also possible and in fact very easy to walk! There is a paved path through the pines where people of all ages walk or even run to the top. 

Bergen está situada en medio de siete montañas, que se conocen como de syv fjell en noruego. De todas ellas, Fløyen es la más accesible, ya que hay un funicular llamado Fløibanen que te lleva desde el centro hasta la cima en un cuarto de hora. Aun así, ¡también se puede subir andando! Mucha gente anda o corre hasta arriba porque hay un camino asfaltado por el que se va muy cómodamente hasta arriba.

At the top

Because getting to the top is so easy, it is also one of the most touristy places to visit in Bergen! The lookout in Fløyen is always full of tourists taking pictures over the city, which is totally understandable considering how beautiful of a view it is. There is a kiosk and a restaurant where one can drink a cup of hot chocolate or eat waffles with jam and the very typical Norwegian brown cheese.

Como llegar hasta arriba es tan fácil, también es uno de los lugares más turísticos de la ciudad. El mirador en la cima de Fløyen siempre está lleno de turistas haciendo fotos de las vistas (normal, son unas vistas alucinantes). Hay un quiosco y un restaurante donde uno puede tomarse una taza de chocolate caliente o unos gofres con mermelada y queso de cabra dulce (algo muy típico en Noruega).

This is the perfect activity for a relaxing Sunday in the city when it’s not raining. We’re having surprisingly good weather in the city these days, so we have to enjoy it to the fullest! Tonight I have some friends coming over to a “knitting party” ha! How fun is that? After reading Giada’s posts about knitting I really really wanted to try it, so we’ll see how that goes! And you? What are your plans for today? Enjoy the end of the week!

Esta es la excursión perfecta para un domingo tranquilo en la ciudad si no está lloviendo. Estamos teniendo un tiempo bastante bueno en Bergen estos días, ¡así que tenemos que aprovecharlo al máximo! Esta tarde vienen unas amigas a una “reunión de tejer” jaja. Suena divertido, ¿no? Después de leer a Giada y su obsesión con tejer me han entrado muchas ganas de probar a ver qué tal… ¡Ya os contaré! Y vosotros, ¿cuáles son vuestros planes para el domingo?

      Thank you Sabine! It really is beautiful! The cool thing is that the name itself comes from when the Germans were here… so I guess the gave the city between the 7 mountains a very appropriate name hehe 🙂
