Ulriken, Bergen

4.7
#2 of 16 in Parks in Bergen
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.

  • It takes only 5 minutes with cable car to the top.. Great views on the whole city and nearby mountains.. less options during off-season..  more »
  • It took us 3.5 hours to reach the top from the city center and. 1.5 hours to go back. It was full of snow and difficult to hike but it's amazing to find such a beautiful nature and views so close to a...  more »
  • A mountain tour or just a little utflulkt? Here you can at least enjoy the view over Bergen and seutover the sea-almost to England:-) Can recommend both to take the path up or go the new stairs-has been very nice and available to many. Definitely a lovely trip across the width-from Ulriken to the Wing-or the reverse. Anyway-if you do not want to walk up one can take one of the courses-or both. GOOD RIDE!

  • Excellent mountain to hike. Once you reach the top you're rewarded with a great view. if you have the energy for it, then hike across to Mt. Floyen. The solitude and fresh air are priceless - although be careful just after the snow thaws as the ground will be soggy and muddy. Route is well sign-posted and there's always company in the form of other hikers so, you'll be safe in case you sprain an ankle or worse.
  • Incredibly beautiful nature. Using the cable car may get you to the top faster but you would lose and incredible hike! Be sure that you wear a proper equipment in winter since the top can be frozen and very slippery. Get a challenge climbing from the less popular North-West side!
  • One of the most beautiful nature hikes I have ever done! Loved the casual walk around at the top of the tram.
  • The best view around bergen, astonishing view from the restaurant.
  • What a place....heave on earth Wear your trekking shoes and pack some sandwiches...nice place to get out of busy city life :)
