An interesting spiral shaped tunnel. Long of 1650 m, it was a fun drive up, specially with a car above 200 hp and a loud exhaust! It is also amazing the fact that you can see the rocky walls, as it is not a modern...More

The only known spiral tunnel in the world takes you from city centre to footpaths in the forests. Excellent view over the beautiful Drammen Valley, 180 degree view over the fjord. Restricted menu, but excellent food.

I love adventures and places that make me wonder why they look like they do. The Spiral is one of those. It is a tunnel winding up inside the hillside and very mysterious, ending up at the top of the hillside with a fantastic view.

Quite a long drive, but, it offered a very nice view of Drammen. The place is also conducive for hiking.

It is open 7 until 23 Mon to Fri, and 8 until 23 Saturday and Sunday. The cafe is open 12 to 17. It costs 35 kroner toll to use the tunnel in the opening hours, and 350 outside opening hours (there is a toll/barrier).

In 2013 the price was 35 Norwegian Kroner for one trip. From Kongsberg it is approximately 39,6 km and 36 minutes’ drive according to the web.
