Ulriken, Bergen
(4.5/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Rising imposingly above Bergen, Ulriken stands as the highest of the seven mountains ringing the city. Make your way to the top, 643 m (2,110 ft) above sea level, for a sweeping view over the city, its harbor, and the surrounding mountains. Ascend via the network of rugged mountain trails or by taking the cable car that runs from the city center to the peak. Alternatively, hop aboard a shuttle bus from Bergen, which departs from the city's tourist information office. Once you arrive at the top, take advantage of the free telescopes to get a closer view of the landscape.

  • At the top you can of course go away, however, the cable car is not too expensive and quickly takes you to your destination. From the top of the mountain Ulriken, offers beautiful views of the entire Bay and the city of Bergen itself with the surrounding fjords. Your objective, however, may not be the only prospect and the local café, but you could also take a very interesting landscape on the hiking routes of the area.

  • We travelled up from the autumn weather to the top where there was full snow storm and winter. Tough experience. Remember to buy tickets in the valet though it is luke special needs.

  • We spent 160NOK to ride the Ulriken643, not the cheapest ride by normal standards, but the view this provides is amazing! There's nothing to do up there, but the ride is refreshing as it is beautiful....  more »

  • Excellent hike in the Bergen area. There's a extreme path that is almost vertical the entire time or am easier path which is more gradual. Some stunning views from the top if clear. Also a small Workout area at the top with things like pull up Bars and Dip Bars.
  • A must do when you are visiting Bergen, it gives you a really nice and broad view over the city, an overall pretty cool experience. We went for a pick nick on top of Mount Ulriken. It sure is a lot better than just watching television ;-)
  • Clothes were nice, but pricy, and I was after a fridge magnet as a souvenir, which they didn't have. Staff is lovely and cheerful though.
  • Nothing better than stopping by Ulrike to buy ice cream while running over vidden or 7fjellsturen a warm summers day!
  • Simply wonderful view, and great hiking
