Nice photo opportunity just off a side street from the shopping district. Didn't climb the tower, but took plenty of photos of and around. We had a lovely clear day in town, and this was a brief, but pleasant stop.

We walked up to the tower through some lovely shopping streets. We didn't bother paying the 50NOK entrance to climb higher because we had a fairly decent view once we arrived at the street level at the top of the hill

We came here to see the views but to be honest you get better ones from other places. The tower was shut so we couldn't go inside but doubt it would be much better there.

A bit of a climb up but does give some good photo opportunities towards the port area. It is possible to pay and go in.
