Cable car ride takes approx 10 minutes and is standing room only but the views are good. Once at the top there is a viewing area with great... More

If you have time and the weather is good Ulriken is well worth a visit. Great views from the top and there is a decent restaurant on the summit.

A very nice walk all the way to the top. Make sure you have seen the weatherforecast before you go, as the conditions can change very fast...

Another great viewing point over Bergen, this more of a mountain top view and therefore a lot more dramatic than using the funicular in Bergen town centre. Stunning views and the cable car is also very exciting!

Mount Ulriken is a must-visit for the visitors of Bergen. You can reach the top of the mountain by cable car (return trip will cost NOK 150) and the view from the top of the mountain is fabulous on a sunny day. The base station is about 3.5 km from the city centre and you can reach there either on... More

Good trip up there. You can get a bus from outside the tourist information centre which is at the back of the fish market, but quite a walk up hill to the cable car station. But what a view when you get to the top. Good cafe up there and shop. You can walk or ride a bike back down... More

Have been to the top of Ulriken many times this summer, thanks to my adolescent puppy. There are so many beautiful routes up to the top, so if the weather is agreeable, do not miss this whenever in Bergen.

Get the #2 or 3 bus from Xhibition and take the cable car up. A swaying ride and heady views all around, definitely the best in Bergen. On a clear day you can see for many more miles than from Fløyen.

Mount Ulriken is accessible by cable car and there are amazing views. Beware though, in Winter the cable car is often closed due to wind conditions, so check the forecast before you plan your day!
