We visited Spiralen with Norwegian friends. Enjoyed picking blueberries which will later be turned into jam! Easy to find paths and easy parking.

Unusual way to the top of the hill - interesting tunnel where you lose your sense of direction & Nice view over the town.

We drove up the tunnel after paying for parking and parked at the top. We looked out over the city and had coffee at the café. Very nice afternoon.

Nice place to see Drammen city. Nice paths to go for a walk in the nature or to ski. Need to pay a small fee to cross the Spiralen tunnel.
