About Knabben

Knabben is a small peak looking over the Drammen valley. You will experience great views of most of Drammen and the fjord outside it. There are several options going up to Knabben. Our suggested route is the most difficult one, but also the most fun. It starts fairly steep, and after finishing the first 200-300 meter the path goes straight up to the top. You will find a couple of sections where a rope is laid out to help you up.

If you would like to do an easier route then you have two other good options. From the start of the hike follow instead the signs for "Knabben Lett" along the road. Or go west on the lit trail and then follow the blue marked trail to the top.

If you want to do a longer adventure you can continue to Aslakkane and "sail some boats" as Sailing boats at Aslakkane
