Løvstakken is one of the Seven Mountains that surround the city centre of Bergen, Norway. The mountain is located between the Fyllingsdalen and Bergensdalen valleys. Løvstakken and the forests nearby are popular hiking areas among the locals. Gullsteinen, a large hill located south of the summit of Løvstakken, is also part of the mountain massif and borders the protected forest area Langeskogen.
