Ulriken is the highest of the Seven Mountains (de syv Fjell) that surround Bergen, Norway. It has an altitude of 643 metres above sea level. Ulriken has an aerial tramway, Ulriksbanen, that can bring people to the top. At the top there is a TV tower, a restaurant, and free telescopes. The cable car was closed as of January 2006, due to the operating company failing to meet government requirements for documentation, but it reopened later in the spring of the same year. It was later closed again, but it reopened for business on May 1, 2009.
There is a network of trails to climb Ulriken. However, many of them are poorly or unmaintained, rendering the journey difficult for people in less than fit condition. There are few visitor facilities on the way up. Bridges and steep sections can be particularly difficult, especially in less than perfect weather conditions.
