  • Message from Rolf
    Hi.
    Wednesday is the day for stretching your legs and take a trip to Mount Ulriken. We will start from the light rail station Kronstad 15 minutes past 4. The Light Rail is leaving Fantoft approximately 3 minutes past 4, and will arrive at Kronstad station 14 minutes past 4. All stations have a clearly marked name, I will await you at Kronstad (see map). Since it most probably will be raining, you will need shoes that are waterproof, either jogging shoes (GoreTex) or hiking shoes. Rubber boots are not recommended. A rain coat or a light jacket will be needed.
    There are several paths leading to the top, we will follow the dryest one to the top, and the second dryest one down again. There is no climbing along the route, the path up is, however, rather steep, but there is a rail to hold on to. For those who only want to do the downhill part, there is a cable car that takes you to the top. And down again for those who only want to visit the restaurant at the top.
    Don’t forget your camera, no fog not guaranteed.See you at Kronstad (see map).

Or you can go to the SiB fitness facilities or go for a walk in nature, in the city or work on your presentation. Follow your own schedule.

  • 22.00-03.00: Salsa at Pachas Nightclub (free entrance)

Thursday 5/8
