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.

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

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 !

Very windy and cloudy on our recent visit. Even so we had reasonable views over Stavanger It was possible to see our cruise ship moored up

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
