 Spiralen Cafe & Restaurant

Spiralen Cafe and Restaurant is the perfect place to finish off your day with good food, a fantastic panoramic view and pleasant surroundings. If you want a panoramic view, closeness to nature and refreshments all in one package, then the Spiral Top is the place to go. Here you can see the city, the river, the fjord and surrounding areas, with the mountains in Kongsberg and Numedal on the horizon. The Spiral Top is constructed on top of the old outer bulwarks on Bragernes Hill.

The Spiral tunnel inside Bragernes Hill climbs in spiral-form from 50 metres (approximately 650 feet) to over 200 metres (approximately 2600 feet) above sea-level. You can literally put your steering-weel into "veer-left mode", and continue up and up until you reach he top. The tunnel, which is 1.650 metres long, is formed like a coil spring, and makes six sharp turns on the ascent up to the top.

The Spiral Tunnel was opened on the occasion of the city´s 150 years anniversiry in 1961. It was originally an open quarry that was dug out at the turn of the century to supply fill for the city´s road construction work. The Spiral Tunnel has been a popular attraction ever since.
