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

It is a nice starting point for hiking & beautiful nature walks. On summer time is possible to pick while blueberries and if one have some knowledge of while mushrooms it is also possible to find some there. The panoramic view of Drammen & of the river is fantastic. There is a restaurant that sells beverages, waffles, ice cream &... More

We didn't drive up the tunnel; instead, we followed the hiking trail to Spiraltoppen. It's short but steep, rewarding you with incredible views. At the top, you'll find miles of walking trails, a restaurant, and an open air museum with some well kept examples of traditional Norwegian architecture. Definitely worth hiking up and spending some time walking around.

A tunnel dating back a century (i think) and a climb to the top of a hill. Final view breath taking. Worth it? Hell ya!!. I dont think Public transport goes there. Stay on top, half hour. Climb to top by car , 5 mins. Recommended

Been up there many times, in all kinds of weather and it is always beautiful. Of course it is the best when the sun is shining and then end the sightseeing with something good at the nice coffeehouse. It is a must when in Drammen!
