A must when in Drammen

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

My relatives and I visited Spiralen in September 2016. We drove to the top of the tunnel and the views from the mountain-top were breath-taking!! We hiked for a bit, sat on the benches, and just admired nature's beauty. The views are of the city and fjords-- absolutely stunning and scenic :)

Spiralen is a place to drive if you want a wonderfull view over the Drammen area. You enter it by going in a long tunnel that goes like a spiral inside the mountain.

We were taken here by local friends, normally we'd find our way up there on foot but ascending a mountain in a spiral tunnel is pretty unique. I'm not sure how much the toll was to drive in the tunnel, paid by our hosts. The view at the top was love, the river sparkling in the setting sun. Definitely recommended... More

Lived nearby this great attraction for 6 years without hearing a single word about it. I guess that's what happens to an attraction built in 1961 and everyone has been up there as a kid. It gets forgotten, well, apart from all the fitness nuts who descend on it daily to get their kicks! I couldn't quite believe it at... More
