This is an excellent place to go for a high level view of Drammen. There is a nice café on top where you can eat or drink something. It seems like there are several hiking trails in the area. In addition, the drive to the top through the middle of the mountain is quite impressive. Try not to miss the... More

Nice place to see Drammen city. Nice paths to go for a walk in the nature or to ski. Need to pay a small fee to cross the Spiralen tunnel.

If you find yourself in Drammen and have some time to spare I could definitely recommend a trip to Spiralen. Inside the Mountain theres a spiraling tunnel which leads to the top. Beautiful area to hike by foot, ski's or bike. There's also a collection of old buildings and houses worth a visit.

Having been born and bred in the Drammen region, I've spent many a moment hiking around up on Spiralen. This time around we took our mates who were visiting from the UK up here. Needless to say, it offered a stunning view. Be sure to have a walk around in the free outdoor Norwegian heritage museum that's up there. Great... More

The best view of the valley. Excellent starting point for hiking in the summer or skiing in the winter, or just to relax and enjoy the scenery

In Winter, be sure to have a car with winter tyres because it coukld be tricky to approach the tunnel in icy or snow covered road..

It's a fascinating experience reaching the top of the hill through this spiral tunnel. Take care if you are claustrophobic...... one of our friend was and he really panicked when we were inside the tunnel. When you get out of the tunnel at the hill top which is 600 ft higher than the tunnel entrance, one is absolutely stunned to... More

Was in Drammen area and was suggested to time the visit here during Sunset. Got to the top and was greeted by a spectacular view of Drammen frm the top! Ground was slippery as during winter it's covered with snow, so remember to wear proper winter gears if visiting during Winter
