Took the toughest way uphill and was blessed with fantastic weather and view on the top. Nice restaurant with 360 degrees view, really good food and a glass of wine. Been here several times, and you can also take the gondol to the top and walk down if you like, or gondol both ways.

Fantastic view, but make sure it is not foggy. That sort of spoil the view.... Bring hiking shoes as it is nice terrain for a walk innland from the top.

This maybe combine the best of Bergen. After seen the town from "floor level" you can have a great view of Bergen from 643 above sea level. Remember good footwear if you are fitted to walk all the way up/down (recomended).

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!
