Owner description: 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.

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 to connect the islands in the sound.

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 altitude by walking up a few more flights of stairs.
Located in the same area as the Iron age site, and the University, there are no signs telling you how to get there, but then, all you have to do is look up to see the mast.

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 but until now, I havent seen them from there. There are also a lot of benches for picknicking.
