Drop the funicular, hike up the mountainside. Tracks are obvious, lots of other hikers ususally. Just follow the trail in the forest behind the cable car station. A bit steep at the top, but that just feels great. Better not walk up while icy though!

Absolutely awesome spectacular view of Bergen! A bus takes you to the cable car station, then you ascend in a comfortable car to the peak. Once there, you may view the city from the comfortable platform outside the restaurant. Or you may hike the area to get close up to nature and see even more scenery. This does not take... More

You start climbing the mountain beneeth the cable cabin and after 600 mtrs you are on top of Ulriken. You can also take the trip with the cable cabin. After a short rest (you can also get drinks and use the toilet on the top), you start walking towards the Fløyen (around 11-12 kilometers walk). Downhill you can walk on... More

If you want to be "on top of Bergen", this is the place to go! The view is AMAZING, but the weather needs to be clear. A crystal clear winter day is the absolute best, but watch out for the meteorological phenomenon called "inversion". In Bergen this traps smog that sits as lid on top of Bergen. In Mount Ulriken,...

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.
