There are actually a lot more than seven mountains around Bergen, but the playwright Ludvig Holberg felt so inspired by the seven hills of Rome, that he decided that his home town must be blessed with a corresponding number of mountains, and the idea stuck. Ulriken is the highest of "the seven", 643 meters above sea level. But there are also many other hiking opportunities in the nature surrounding Bergen.
