Overview

Ullandhaug tower - The telecommunications tower was built in 1964. The tower rises 64 metres on a hill 135 m above sea level. From here you have a marvellous view of Stavanger, Ryfylke and Nordjaeren. Harald's Cairn was sited here previously and rocks from the top of this older tower are now placed beside Ullandhaugtarn.

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.

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

This visit is not recommended on a cloudy day. Beautiful view on a clear and sunny day. You will be able to see miles in all directions. Fjords and mountains etc. Could be very cold on a windy day !

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

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

There are some great views from the tower however as it takes some time to get there I would recommend you something closer (Valandstarnet perhaps) to city in case your stay in Stavanger is short. Also, the tower seems closed and quite abandoned so you...More
