Uranienborg, or Torjusheia, as the correct name is, is a wonderful and popular viewpoint in the city, 62 meters over sea level.

The name Uranienborg was given to the first "kikkerthus" (binoculars house) that was built here in 1862, as a memorial of the russian ship Ingermanland wrecked at the coast here in 1842. The binoculars onboard Ingermanland is said to have stood there.

During second world war there was three gun emplacements at Uranienborg and the mountain is perforated with tunnels and bunkers.

Beautiful view of the city and the skerries. The "kikkerthus" is quite new, paths are made and new benches have been put up.

Access from Torjusheigata (steps) or from the entrance of the parkinghouse in the walking area.
