Åre Bergbana is a funicular railway located in Åre, Jämtland County, Sweden. It is 790-metre (2,590 ft) long and runs between the town square at 398 metres (1,306 ft) amsl and Fjällgården (English: Fell Farm) at 556 metres (1,824 ft) amsl. The funicular was built as the first fixed link up to the fell by Von Roll from 1908 to 1910 at a cost of 230,000 SEK and inaugurated 7 March 1910.
Åre Bergbana has enjoyed the status of byggnadsminne (listed building) since 22 August 2008. This includes the funicular itself, the two station buildings, a park and the so-called Grottan (English: The Cave) — the street going from the town square station to the old railway station.
