    Mount Ulriken - the highest point in Bergen

    Bergen is surrounded by seven hills/mountains, of which Mt. Ulriken is the highest one. One can go by a nice cable car up, but there are also many paths for those who want to make it on their own and walk/hike all the way up.

    Up on the hill there is no restaurant; in that sense Mt. Floyen was nicer place. It also had more places to sit and watch around - and buy postcards and souvenirs.

    Naturally the view was very beautiful as whole city and even the fjords could be seen.

    I wondered one fact: in the majority of the places there were no fences so those who travel with their kids should be aware all the time.

    Out of Bergens seven mountains this is the highest at more than 800 m. There is a cable car (Ulriksbanen) going up to the top and a restaurant to relax after spending time walking. It is also possible to walk up the mountain although it is very steep and quite demanding. Walking down is far easier...

    Ulriken is also the starting point for many longer walks either around the city or away from it to one of the many cabins around.

    The view from the top is fantastic if the weather is nice and probably even better when it isn't, although this can mean that the cable car stops running. It can be very windy up there!

    Cable Car on Mount Ulriken

    This mountain is higher than the Fløien and offers a spectacular view and occasional outdoor concerts in the summer.

    A popular hike from Ulriken is to walk across Vidden to Fløien. This takes 4-5 hours.

    View from Ulriken

    Bergen lies between seven mountains. Ulrikken is the highest of them. You can walk here eighter from Fløyen, or from the foot of the mountain. For the lazy theres a bus going to the cable cars that take you all the way to the top.

    The mast at the top is a TV-mast.

    The only nice view is not only the one from the top, All along the way up (starting from the youth hostel Montana - from the center, take the bus n°34 I think), you will see various landscapes, discover several hidden lakes with very nice red wooden cabins...And once you reached the top, you can go down with stairs in the direction of Bergen and another barrage lake.

    Ulriksbanen Cable Car
    Bergen’s best view of the fjords, islands and coast. Mount Ulriken is the highest (642 m) of the 7 mountains surrounding the city center. The cable car departs every seven minutes.
    On Mt. Ulriken you may take a meal in the restaurant or buy something lighter from the kiosk. Free telescopes are available
    Hike on the well-marked trails in the unspoiled mountain wilderness – guides are available. A hike to Mt Fløien will take you approximately three hours
