  • Good exercise climbing up all the steps to the top, but the view is indeed fantastic. (There were cars on top, so it looks like you can also drive up.)

  • The sun was shining and the walk up the hill was worth it when we got to the top. The view breathtaking! Free to enter the look out point but the cafe was closed. If you feel it’s too much like hard.....  more

  • A must to visit in Ålesund. We visited Ålesund several years ago before pandemic and there used to be entrance fee to enter the Fjellstua. However this time, 2022, it’s free to enter. The café...

  • Nice place with a beautiful view over Ålesund. Don't use the buildings balcony for the view the point on top of the hill or the rocks next to the street curve just before the building. There you have an amazing view over 180° or even more. Enjoy. If you look for a toilet, you will find one in the basement of the building, where the restaurant is located.
  • Beautiful view point. The view is actually better from inside the restaurant area. Visited last week of June so the restaurant was not operational, but the area had free access. Otherwise I guess the restaurant charges to go in even to take a view. Google maps is a disaster to follow. Would recommend to use Maps from iPhone it was way better in directions.
  • Great view from the top. We could clearly see all of the port area including our ship the Disney Magic. The place is quite crowded as this is something that everyone does. You can either climb up the 400+ stairs or take a tour bus to the top. We went to the viewpoint as part of a tour. Interesting seeing the large busses work with each other on the single lane road.
  • Unbelievable. Some of the most beautiful views in the world! Loves the brisk hike up the viewpoint and the walk through the city to get there.
  • We were on a tourist train ride so had a short time to admire the view before heading off again. The views and walks around it are great.
