4.5
#4 of 698 in Museums in Norway
Discover why skiing is so important to Norway's culture and visit a modern ski jump at Holmenkollen Ski Museum. Easily reached by metro, the ski jump was opened in 2010, and stands 64 m (209 ft) high. Hop on one of the enclosed elevators that bring you up to the all-glass starting box, where you can take in a 360-degree view of Oslo. Adrenaline junkies can ride down on Fly Holmenkollen, the zipline that runs 361 m (1,184 ft) and follows the same route as the ski jumpers. Also try the Kollen Ski Simulator, which uses advanced technology to show you what it feels like to ski down one of the toughest slopes. Stop by the museum on your way out to witness over 4,000 years of ski history and learn about how skis were once a necessity in this region. The price of the museum is included in your ticket up to the jump. Add Holmenkollen Ski Museum to your Oslo travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Oslo trip planner.

  • It was a beautiful ski jumping tower with a lovely view to Oslo. This place several things to offer. You could walk around the tower and landing area, be in a ski jumping and downhill skiing simulator. There was a nice little museum and a shop on the first floor and last but not least - with the elevator you could go up to a tower and enjoy the 360degree view. Of course all of these things except walking around cost money.
  • Well worth the journey to get a sense of just how much training must go into ski jumping. The observatory at the top gives fantastic views. Just a warning, it's a long walk up the hill from the bus station. Be sure to leave your suitcases at the hotel.
  • Very informative visit and an astonishing look down the jump tower. With better weather in the morning we could have had a great view over Oslo I guess but unfortunately we were a bit late and the fog had already conquered Holmenkollen.
  • Very nice view, but I enjoyed the adventure more, because we took it by stairs, from the dropping side.
  • Just mind-blowing scenes... Reached there at about 6pm local time and still it was so lovely with people getting to the top of the ski jump tower... Amazing stuff
