Located in Drammen, the capital of the county of Buskerud, centrally located in the eastern and most populated part of Norway, the Drammen Spiral is an unusual helix-shaped tunnel.

Built in 1961 and comprising six spirals covering 1,649 meters (5,413 feet), the tunnel climbs in spiral-form from 50 metres (approximately 650 feet) to over 200 metres (approximately 2600 feet) above sea-level in six loops. This is a unique experience This unique road starts at the riverside city streets, then spirals like a coil up 2,000ft up to a plateau overlooking the industrial town of Drammen.

The tunnel is asphalted. It is not recommended if you suffer of claustrophobia. It has the shape of a helix, winding up the Bragernesåsen hill in six loops. It leads to one of the most spectacular viewpoints in the city. At the top you have Drammen Museum, an open-air museum and parking for 200 cars. You will also find a cafeteria, a kiosk, toilets and seats dotted about the area.
