Lyderhorn is the westernmost of the seven City Mountains. It has a characteristic shape and has long been used as a navigational mark for vessels sailing along the coast off Bergen. In the middle Ages it was also one of the places in Norway where witches would gather on Walpurgisnacht and Midsummer Eve.
Among the trails leading to the summit, perhaps the easiest (and certainly the longest) trail starts at NUTEC and leads through the abandoned costal fortress at Kvarven. The other six City Mountains are all visible from Lyderhorn, and on clear days it is possible to see oil installations far out in the North Sea, as are the mountains and glacier Folgefonnen in Hardanger to the east.

All hashers will have crash space somewhere at the venue from Friday to Sunday. For the 2020 Weekend, there will be a committee in charge of bed-allocations on a first-register-first-serve basis for visiting hashers. Any free beds after the registration has closed will be allocated local hashers on a first-register-first-serve basis. All beds have mattresses and some beds even have duvets and pillows. You will need to bring a sleeping bag and it is also worth considering bringing your own bed linen to cover the mattress. Please note that there is no bedding rental service at the venue. You will need to bring a towel if you plan to shower or go for a swim in the ocean/fjord during the Weekend.
Local hashers and any hang-around will camp on the lawn next to the cabin if there are not enough beds to go around. Click on the picture (right) for an overview of where tents can be pitched.
Traveling by car
The roads leading to the venue are narrow and winding and in most places not wide enough for two cars to pass. If you drive from the City Centre, this LINK shows the approx. 4.9 kilometre route from LAGUNEN, a shopping centre just over halfway between the City Centre and the Airport. This LINK shows the approx. 4.9 kilometre route if you are heading to the venue from the general area around the Airport.
The lane leading to the venue is easily missed, as can be seen HERE leading right if you drive from Lagunen and HERE leading left if you drive in the opposite direction.
Please note that the lane leading to the venue is closed off by a barrier which cannot be opened until we receive the key to the venue, usually on (pub-crawl) Friday. There is no organised transport from the venue to the City Centre on Friday. To get to town by public transport, you can try either to hitch a lift to the nearest tram stop (approx. 4.8 kilometres from the venue) from a hasher with a car at the venue or walk to the nearest bus stop (approx. 1.2 kilometres from the venue) to catch bus #53 to Birkelandsskiftet where you change to the tram heading into town. There is a bus stop a bit closer to the venue where bus #65 stops, but it used to have a very patchy service and not really worth considering.
If you do not have the local bus company's app installed on your mobile phone, you can (probably) purchase a bus ticket (at a price) from the driver. Check "Public transport from the airport" (below) for details about tickets.
Traveling by boat
If you travel by express boat from different parts of the West Coast of Norway to Bergen, you will arrive close to the City Centre at Strandkaiterminalen, which is also approximately 725 metres from the kick-off meeting point.

Traveling by plane
As a rule, we advise visitors arriving on Friday to head for the City Centre rather than heading for the venue. Although the venue is only approximately 6 kilometres from the airport:
- There are no direct bus links from the Airport to the venue
- There will probably not be anyone at the venue when you arrive
- You must find the local bus stop which is approximately 1.2 kilometres from the venue to catch a bus to the City Centre
Public transport from airport
A tram station is situated one floor below ground level in the terminal forecourt. The journey between the Airport and the City Centre takes approx. 44 minutes by tram and trams run between 5:45 a.m. and 4 a.m. depending on day of the week. Check the timetable (in Norwegian) HERE for more details.
There is a local bus service to/from the Airport but this is not recommended because it (probably) takes longer than the tram and you must change buses at least once, and all for the same price as taking the tram.
An Airport Express Coach stops just outside the terminal building. See below for more details.
In addition to single tickets, the bus/tram operator also offers 7-day season tickets, 30-day season tickets, 180-day season tickets and 24-hour tickets. Click HERE for information about tickets and prices.
Purchased before boarding:NOK 119NOK 199
Transport during the weekend
On Saturday, there will be transport from the venue to and from the Killer Hill run.
If you need transport from the venue on Sunday, please inform the GM during the weekend. This year we aim to book (at least) two maxi-taxis (approx. 12 people per taxi) to transport hashers from the venue to the airport. If you need to get to the City Centre, you can catch a tram from the airport to the City Centre.
Weekend kick-off point
A local hasher knows the staff and on previous weekends has arranged storage of luggage in the pub cellar from 6 p.m. for Friday pub-crawl Hashers who head for the Pub loaded with luggage. Hopefully, the same will be possible this year.
After the Friday pub-crawl
The Friday evening registration at the venue is a relaxed and laid-back affair. We intend to have names on doors and a list at the information desk showing where everyone is billeted. Hash Cash usually sets up shop on Saturday to complete any outstanding transactions and our Haberdasher hands out the weekend goodies in time for the Saturday run.
All hashers will have crash space somewhere at the venue from Friday to Sunday, either in a bed or in a tent. Because there are fewer beds than participants, all BH3 hashers and visiting late-cummers will be in tents. A symbol (a bed or a tent) on the Who's Cummin list shows where you will be billeted at the venue.
The Saturday Killer Hill run
Hashers prepare their own packed lunch Saturday morning, and together with any water and change of clothes, carry it themselves on the run. We eat lunch at the second drink-stop, usually on the Killer Hill Mountain summit. As of late, the hares have distributed the drink-stop beer among hashers to carry on the run.
