  • After a very cold walk in snow storm up on top, it was a huge relief not having to go down too! It is also a fine feeling to get the story about the car and its roots in the cold war. Control was top notch. My girls and I pivfrøs, but course Superintendent closed us into the engine room, where there was good heat-thanks for that! And I could look at the technique-not bad fool you are engineer:-)

  • Gaustadbanen was our "rescue" the day we ascended the Gaustadtoppen. With wind at 15 m/sec and some snow in the air, it was good to be able to take the Gaustadbanen down through the mountain instead of risking your health on the slippery stones down the mountain again. We were allowed to bring our dogs too. Big plus! The actual path is so steep that I would not sit in the first car but it went terrific to sit a little further back. Was also a little excited because I have a little claustrophobic but this also went very well. No sense that this was confined in any way.

  • A bit expensive. I would recommend hiking.
  • "Cheat" your way up to one of Norways best sights.
  • Noisy, slow and expensive - 250.- Norwegian Kroner one way
  • The ride with the railways and the railway (only one that runs on level ground and then that which moves upwards) is great and really fun. The view from the top is fantastic, so it is worthwhile in any case. I think it's bit of a shame, above and below to do that much at the train station. Above is a small Café or restaurant, because you could not purely with dog. There is a possibility to leave the dog somewhere but not really. So rather awkward for me as unaccompanied. Neither top on the Summit still down there is a souvenir shop (a few very few souvenirs are available in the ticket sales, but this is largely confined to T-Shirts) – like very bad, still bought a few gifts for friends.
