Ulriksbanen to mount Ulriken

Mount Ulriken towers over Bergen town with its distant, characteristic 643 meters high profile, with its tv and radio antenna on top, in night time coloured with cycling colours. However distant, the mountain top is easily accessible if you let Ulriksbanen cable car line bring you there, some few minutes up the nill side. The view is truly spectacular, as is the travel uphill.

Tourist buses take you from Torgallmenningen just across the street from the seafarers’ monument, to the Ulriksbanen cable car line lower station.

The hike up or down the mountain, takes approximately one hour from the lower cablecar station along the shortest and steepest route. The hike is very pleasant, and has several alternative routes. But check that your footwear, as the track after a rainy day—which in Bergen means most days—might be wet, occationally muddy and slippery. Dress according to the weather, before starting off.
