About 10 minutes walk from the station on top, you find the lake Skomakerdiket. The charming cafe Skomakerstuen is open during weekends and public holidays. Try the Norwegian "svele" and something to drink, with a beautiful view over the water.

Did you know that the Fløistuen Café grows some of its own produce only meters away from the café? MatTak (directly translated to food roof) is a company that grows fresh produce on rooftops throughout the city. Mattak's goal is to spread knowledge about growing food and how to cope with climate change. Vegetables like potatoes, salads and edible flowers are grown on Mount Fløyen and used in the café.

Mount Fløyen for children:

Children can have fun at the large playground or try an exciting obstacle course in the forest. Stroll through the mysterious Troll Forest if you dare.. In the summer you can paddle a canoe at the idyllic Lake Skomakerdiket (for free). If you want a little more speed and excitement, you can rent a mountain bike with fantastic viewpoints along the way.

PS. if you visit Fløyen in the summer, you have to say hello to the cuddly and slightly mischievous goats "Fløyenguttene".
