    sturdy shoes, take water. Either totally early or start in the afternoon, otherwise you have to with the flood of people up the mountain. That means then in the traffic jam (!) The mountain up or down.

    Recommended only in dry weather, the stones are otherwise very slippery.

    As one of the most spectacular viewpoints in Norway, the Preikestolen is probably one of the country's most popular hiking destinations. The platform drops vertically over 600 meters into the sea and offers a fantastic view over the Lysefjord and the surrounding mountains. It is best to start early in the morning to enjoy the view in front of the tourist crowds.

    In any case, put on hiking boots or sturdy shoes, I was up in the rain and fog but it was all worth it! In between, it always clears up and it is still an adventure there and worth seeing, because there are mountains, lakes, waterfalls to look at.
    Food and drink I would recommend to take.

    Impressive rock pulpit that rises 600 meters from the Lysefjord.

    Very nice and spectacular view. In the summer unfortunately very crowded. Either start at 7:00 in the morning or start at 16:00 in the afternoon. The peak of people is between 10 and 16. Enjoy!

    If you are experienced hiker and with good equipment on the way (at least hiking boots, best sticks), a detour to the peaks behind the Preikestolen definitely worth it. You can follow the marked "Hill Trail", or even climb higher.

    Grandiose views in breathtaking scenery! A must for every fan of great views!
    Absolutely start at the crack of dawn otherwise you have to reckon with jam on tricky passages. On beautiful days there are literally Völkerwanderungen statt.Das is the only downer of the hike. And maybe the aching bones ... ;-) ~
