Ytrebygda is located southwest of the city center. It was originally part of Fana municipality that was incorporated in Bergen in 1972, and later part of the Fana district, but was administratively a separate district in 1990. Ytrebygda borders Fana district in the east and the Fana Fjord in the south.
Apart from the residential neighborhoods, Ytrebygda has a large office area in the Kokstad and Sandsli area, with large office buildings for companies such as StatoilHydro and Norsk Hydro. The city's airport, Bergen Airport, Flesland, is located in the western part of the borough. Just north of Airport Road is Siljustøl Museum. South of Airport Road is the Bergen Yacht Club (Bergens Seilforening), Golf Club and Fana Stadium. On the far south is Milde Arboretum and Botanical Garden, Fana College (Fana Folkehøgskule), and Store Milde.
