Keilhaus topp is one of Norway's highest mountains, but is not always included in rankings due to its prominence of only 20 m.

The summit lies approximately 750 m east of Galdhøpiggen, Norway's highest.

The name[edit]

The professor Baltazar Mathias Keilhau, together with two students, tried to reach the top of Galdhøpiggen in 1844 - but he had to stop here because of bad weather.
