One of the great things about Kalfarlien, is its convenient and attractive location. Situated at the foot of Mount Floyen, there is a scenic walk that takes you towards the funicular. From there you have the option of walking down to the city centre, or continuing up the mountain path to the top of Floyen, where you will discover amazing views of Bergen and the surrounding mountains. If you are looking to go even higher in altitude, the cable car
for 'Ulriken' is also within walking distance from the house.
THINGS TO DO
The historic centre , Bryggen, with the Hanseatic Museum and Fortress, is on the world heritage list.
The Kode Galleries exhibit art from world artists, old and new. This is well worth a visit.
Edvard Grieg's home
Classical music concerts are hosted in the Troldsalen concert hall, next to Edvard Grieg's home.
Short sea trips
If you're looking to get out on the water, there are a number of small ferries that will provide stunning views of the city from the harbour.
In good weather, 4, 6 or 9 hour trips on a fast boat to one of the local fjords can be a great experience.
Norway in a nutshell
This is the ultimate scenic
tour Norway has to offer. Experience the world famous Flåm Railway and a fjord cruise on the Nærøyfjord.
Drivers and pedestrians must take the main road 585, whether from the center or the south. Find the road Kong Oscars gate in the center, it changes name to Kalfarveien, then at the top of the long hill changes name again to Kalvedalsveien. At the bus stop named 'Kalfarlien' you find our street KALFARLIEN angles off to the north. Our house is second on the left, no. 4, a big white wood house with double garage.
From central train station: Walk out by the taxi stand and up along the Hotel Terminus to Kong Oscars gate (585). Follow the trolleybus-line uphill. Avoid mixing road names which are quite similar. Don't try a shortcut, it doesn't pay off. Allow 15 minutes from the train station, 20-25 min. from the center. Bus lines 2, 3, 11 and 80 stop at 'Kalfarlien' bus stop.
