About Damsgårdsfjellet

Damsgårdfjellet is considered an easy and low-elevation trekk. Some people claim Damsgårdfjellet is not a mountain in its own right, but exploring it can still be an adventure. A hike up Damsgårdsfjellet can start both from the west and the east. With a height of only 317 meters, this "mountain" is one of the easier hikes in Bergen, although there is another top point at the mountain to the south ranging 354 meters above sea level.
