As the name suggests, this is a spiral-shaped tunnel digged into a mountain so that you can reach the top. It’s 2k long, if I’m not mistaken, so it can be quite challenging for a claustrophobic one (like me) but it’s absolutely worth it! On...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.

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

I don't know how old this amazing structure in the mountain behind Drammen, Norway, is. They say it was started by the Germans during WWII. It is a fascinating round-and-round, up-and-up trip, but the asphalt surface needs repairs, and the water seeps in, at places...More

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).

Another option is getting a taxi to drive you up the tunnel and then have a pleasant walk down the zigzag paths along the hill. There are plenty of benches along the pathways to rest on should you need it along the... More
