Ullandhaug tower - The telecommunications tower was built in 1964. The tower rises 64 metres on a hill 135 m above sea level. From here you have a marvellous view of Stavanger, Ryfylke and Nordjaeren. Harald's Cairn was sited here previously and rocks from the top of this older tower are now placed beside Ullandhaugtarn.

If you are looking for a simple option to get a 360 degree overview of the Stavanger region, this is it. From the parking lot it is a bee-line shot on a small asfalt road up to the radio tower, where one can gain additional...More

This visit is not recommended on a cloudy day. Beautiful view on a clear and sunny day. You will be able to see miles in all directions. Fjords and mountains etc. Could be very cold on a windy day !

Very windy and cloudy on our recent visit. Even so we had reasonable views over Stavanger It was possible to see our cruise ship moored up

The tower is easily accessible due to the close parking lot and offers a really great panorama view of the whole Stavanger area. I would recommend going there at sunrise or sunset. Some say that it is also a good sport for watching Northern Lights...More

Visited the tower on a tour from a cruise ship, this is only a old communications tower of some sort but climb up as far as you can go and the views of the surrounding waterways and county side are nice. Near the base of...More

I stopped here as part of excursion from a cruise ship. It is a 1960s telecom tower and you get good views from each level. It appears rather tatty.

The telecom tower gives a great view of the whole district. At the base there are a number of stones claimed to be Viking relics, that were relocated from nearby fields. Its a free, locally popular visit. Fitness junkies use the steep (250m) walk up...More

There are some great views from the tower however as it takes some time to get there I would recommend you something closer (Valandstarnet perhaps) to city in case your stay in Stavanger is short. Also, the tower seems closed and quite abandoned so you...More

This is a very nice place to visit and get an overview over Stavanger area. It's not too far to walk. Only a hill from the parkinglot. There is also a cafe there, which is open 11 months a year (not july).

Well worth the climb uphill to the tower for 360 degree views of Stavanger city, it's ports, the fjords and surrounding countryside. With a moderate uphill 20 minute walk this is accessible from the airport via a drop at the swords in the rock. Although...More
