Ulriken, Bergen

4.5
#2 of 10 in Parks in Bergen
Mountain Nature / Park
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.

  • the rise of cable car, the 643 meters tall is beautiful! There are walking trails to the top and we went on a beautiful sunny day, there was a lot of people moving up or down the trails. The view is great and there are many walking trails from the top. Good go comfortable tennis to be able to go on trails ranging from beginners to professionals.

  • From the top you get a really good view out of Bergen, but it should preferably be on a day when there is not cloudy. We were there on a sunny day, and it was absolutely perfect! It was a relatively challenging trip so you have to have make hiking shoes on, and it takes about an hour. But it is a really nice trip on the way down the mountain.

Where to stay in Bergen

As a major Norwegian city, Bergen offers accommodations--and just about everything else--at a high price. Try to stay in the picturesque Bryggen wharf area near the fish market, or in the city center. If you’re looking for lively nightlife, check out rooms close to the city’s university. To find less-expensive lodging, search for hostels in the city center and campsites just out of town. Alternatively, live like a local by staying in a small guesthouse.
