The best view of Bergen from atop the mountain. If you just want the view (and a meal) take the cable car up and down. If a bit braver, walk down, or even better, walkm (hike) across Vidden to Mount Fløien. In the latter case yoiu need proper clothing, this is a mountian! Enjoy!

I walked up... well, but was rewarded in the end with a nice view, water supply and a good time on top of Bergen!

Mount Ulriken is the highest of the 7 mountains around Bergen, 643 meters above sea level. The view is just fabulous. There is a bus from the city center. You can choose to walk up if you are in normal shape. You can also go by tramway. At the top you can also by excellent food from Ulriken643 restaurant.

Took the local bus to the cable car rather than the tourist bus. Not totally obvious where to go when disembarked and a bit of a hike but we made it. The tourist bus bus stops right outside. Cable car trip fun and spectacular views from the top. Worth the journey.

We bought a combined ticket for the cable car and a bus from Bergen port. Not cheap, but nothing in Norway is. Good views from the top cable car station.

Mount Ulriken is really nice place with the beautiful view to Bergen. If you have enough time, don't waste your money for funicular (special, if it's windy, then this is not so good experience) but use one of some paths to the mountain.

Mount Ulriken is worth a visit. We took the cable car up to the top for a nice view of Bergen. You can get some classic photos from here on a clear day. There are a lot of trails at the top of Mount Ulriken, you can walk amongst the heather and rocks (there are no trees at the top)... More

If you don't want to take and/or to pay for the cable-car, you can have a nice hike to Ulriken Mount. A bit steep but enjoyable with a great view on top.
