(4.4/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
Discover why skiing is so important to Norway's culture and visit a modern ski jump at Holmenkollen Ski Museum and Ski Jump Tower. 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.

  • Even if you're not a fan of ski jumping this mythical place of the winter OLYMPICS is really to see. We went there at night under snow and we were totally alone! It's really beautiful more next door you will find a beautiful chapel as well as track biathlon!

  • This is really awesome. You get the best view about the city from the top of this building! There are exhibitions about the history of ski and about the sport itself, furthermore they have interactive games for kids as well.
  • If you're a winter sport fan, this can be a nice place to visit.
  • Great museum and shows really that "Norwegians are born with ski's "
  • Definitely worth a visit, but if you go in September or later, be sure to check online which days the zip-line experience down the jump is open. Even on nice days, it is only open on weekends at some times of the year.
  • very nice view for the whole scenery of oslo
