We took the bus to the hospital, then walked up a hill to catch the cable car. It looked like there was a free bus that might go up to the cable car station - perhaps run by the tourist office? It's a quick cable car trip (thankfully, for those of us who aren't great with heights and get a little squeamish....) but it's worth it because the views of Bergen are superb. We were lucky enough to have a beautiful day. We didn't make use of the restaurant so can't comment. There were some serious looking walkers who set off from the top, but we took the cable car back down.

Take the bus from the fish market and the rather expensive ticket includes the cable car fare. At the top there is not only an excellent view of Bergen and its harbour, but also a surprisingly good restaurant. There are also a number of marked hiking trails, should you not be tempted by the restaurant.

It was a rainy day - and still the trip up to Ulriken was worthwhile.
We took the bus-cable package tour - It's quite do-able even independently, though.
The cable-car ride is a joy and the view of Bergen from the peak is epic!
A must-do in Bergen for all travelers.

On a clear day like the time we were there, the view expands for miles. Such a pretty site.At the top, there is a rest/café and toilets facility and some indoor and outdoor table but not much else. One can ascend on foot or via cable car. Unfortunately, if you choose cable car and don't intend to do any walking then, there's not much to do once you get to the top. We chose cable car because we did the trail from Ulriken to Floyen which was a feet numbing five hour trail but it was so worth it. The walk from Ulriken was pretty boring but halfway through, it gets tougher and the view gets better too. Best to choose to do this when the weather is nice and in the weekend when lots of locals do it. It would be easy to get lost because many trails are made by walkers. Some areas in the trails are marked by tower of rocks which make it easier. The locals are very helpful though and will even wait for you.

I went on a cloudy day as i really wanted to experience this when i was in Bergen, and it was the last day. The wait to get on the tramway was very long, probably over an hour. When we got to the top it was quite mesmerising because you are around 650 m above the ocean, but because it was grey and cloudy the view wasn't that great. Also the wait to go down was a while. I highly recommend going on a sunny day and either taking the many trails up or down the mountain instead.
