comment Safe route from Bergen Airport to Vik
@jumpingcode I might make an answer, but waiting for a few days as I really do not know these conditions first-hand and someone more knowledgeable might come along. As gerrit says, fast boats usually don't take cars.

If you don't want to drive, there is a daily fast boat leaving Bergen at 16:30 arriving in Vik 20:05 schedule web page. There is also an airport in Sogndal which is closer to Vik.

The critical part of that route is Rv 13, Vikafjellet (Vik mountain), which can indeed be completely closed in the winter in periods of bad weather. This article (does not work well with Google translate as it is written in the Nynorsk variant of Norwegian) says that the road was closed more than 1000 hours in the 2013/2014 winter - that was apparently a bad year. I imagine the alternative route would be E39 north to Sognefjorden, ferry, east along route 55, then ferry again, this keeps a much lower altitude.

comment From what point could you view the most countries?
Absolutely. Also just found this site: heywhatsthat.com which has "santis" in the drop-down menu and confirms your assertion. Upvoted, though I will still (most likely in vain) try to find another six-country-point somewhere outside Switzerland...

comment From what point could you view the most countries?
This is exactly the region where I would expect to find such a point (really only Europe and Africa have lots of small countries with land borders and in Europe they are to a larger extent located in mountainous areas). However, from this "artificial" view from the mountaintop: peakfinder.org/… I was not able at first glance (just by the non-Germanness of the peak names) to locate any peaks in France or Italy. Ideally, your answer would have a less biased source or a specific lists of at least one point in each country that can be seen
