The views from the top are quite magnificent and it is worth just strolling round and enjoying them before you think of anything else. If you want an icecream or a snack to aid your enjoyment, they are available and there is also what is said to be an excelent restaurant. The town is laid out below you and beyond that are islands and channels galore.
The shop which sells postcards will laso supply you with a guide to the various walks and you could well spend quite a time doing a few. Do walk down if you can, even if you cannot think of doing any uphill walking. The views all the way and the close-up views lower down of new and older housing are wonderful. Most of the way is like a rural stroll - even though it is only minutes from the centre of Norway's second city. Moreover, unusually in my experience, the fare for up only is exactly half the fare for the return trip!

Once at the top, you can do a mountain walk, or have something to eat at the the Floyen Restaurant. It is open ever day in the summer and on weekends in the winter.
There is also a childrens playground and a souvenir shop.
If you choose, you can take the trail and walk back down which will take you about 30-40 minutes.
The funicular runs every 30 minutes and the station is located 150 meters from the waterfront Fish Market.
