Skywatch Friday – Visiting the sky

Its been too long since I visited Ulriken, one of our 7 mountains surrounding my city. Yesterday we had awesome weather, a bit misty but it was time to visit the mountain again. The Area cableway was recently re-openend after a long period of maintainance – now it welcomes tourists to visit a great place with a lovely view. Way below you can see the stadium of our local football team Brann.

Areal cableway Ulriken Bergen

On 643 meters you are the king of the world, in Bergen.


27 degrees celcius, the summer is here. Its fun to see tourists enjoying the visit, and its fun to be a tourist in your own town.
