About Stolzekleiven

Stolzekleiven, also called Stolzen, has a gradient of 315.5 meters and consists of 801 steps. The steps are a quick way up Sandviksfjellet, one of the traditional seven mountains that surround the city of Bergen. Stolzekleiven is frequented by locals for exercise and those training for the annual race to the top of Stolzekleiven called Stolzekleiven Opp. Perhaps you can set a new speed record for ascending Stolzekleiven. The records from Stolzekleiven Opp currently stand at 7.54 minutes (men) or 9.35 minutes (women)
