The neighbourhoods of Fyllingsdalen mainly consist of fairly large apartment buildings.
The early name of the valley, Fynö dalen, was the origin of the name of the farm which gave Fyllingsdalen its name, Fyllingen.
In 1955, Bergen municipality, lacking land to build on, annexed the valley, which at the time had a population of approximately 1,600. Prior to that time, Fyllingsdalen had belonged to the municipality of Fana, which was later merged into Bergen as well.
Culture and education
Fyllingsdalen contains three churches, several elementary schools and lower secondary schools (including Varden skole), one upper secondary school and two nursing homes, as well as police stations, surgeries, pharmacies and post offices.
