The tower is a little way out of town and is a good vantage point for photos but it is quite worn out and the steps were quite uneven so be aware. There is a lot of forest around so difficult sometimes to see afar....More

This is a good 360 view of the town but you can't go that far up so you can't see that far. That said you do have a 360 view that shows you how large the land is and only 140,000 people in it.

The tower is clean, but shabby. The view is great. You can see in all directions. It gave me a better idea of how the town is laid out and where the urban center ends. Also a nice view of the new tunnel being build...More

If you are looking for a simple option to get a 360 degree overview of the Stavanger region, this is it. From the parking lot it is a bee-line shot on a small asfalt road up to the radio tower, where one can gain additional...More

The tower is easily accessible due to the close parking lot and offers a really great panorama view of the whole Stavanger area. I would recommend going there at sunrise or sunset. Some say that it is also a good sport for watching Northern Lights...More

Visited the tower on a tour from a cruise ship, this is only a old communications tower of some sort but climb up as far as you can go and the views of the surrounding waterways and county side are nice. Near the base of...More

I stopped here as part of excursion from a cruise ship. It is a 1960s telecom tower and you get good views from each level. It appears rather tatty.

The telecom tower gives a great view of the whole district. At the base there are a number of stones claimed to be Viking relics, that were relocated from nearby fields. Its a free, locally popular visit. Fitness junkies use the steep (250m) walk up...More
