The café is located at the entrance to the restaurant. The kiosk opens at 09:00 and the restaurant at 11:00.
Mount Ulriken is perfect for hiking. Spectacular views and beautilful terrain whether you take a short 10 minute hike or venture out on a full day hike. It is also popular to walk from Mount Ulriken to Fløyen across "Vidden". The tour takes about 5 hours. You can walk from Fløyen to Ulriken or from Ulriken to Fløyen. The latter is most popular because you get a more gentle walk and you finish right in the city center.
You can also choose to take the cable car up to the top and walk back down. Or the oposite. Read more about hiking up Ulriken here.
