Observation Deck Sports Complex
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.

Where to stay in Oslo

A majority of Oslo's hotels and smaller accommodations cluster along Karl Johans Gate, the city's main drag connecting many of its downtown attractions. If you want something a bit more colorful than the average hotel, consider one of the many bed and breakfasts that have been cropping up in recent years. To escape the crowded streets, but still be walking distance from major sights, stay in the Frogner or Majorstuen neighborhoods near the royal palace. As you can probably guess, lodging is quite expensive in this European capital.

  • The museum is quite small, but have interesting exhibits. The view from the ski jumping tower was impressive! There is a big queue for the elevator.
  • Definitely worth a trek out there. Use the Oslo City pass, then take the 'T' up to the base. Definitely try to go to the top of the ski jump that floats in the air helps you appreciate the jumpers mindset to go down that ramp!. Museum is very good on the history of jumping, skiing, cross and boarding., They have it all.
  • I visited this place in late 2015. It's an excellent and entertaining museum taking you through the history behind the skiing sports and it's evolution. Visit the gifts shop before leaving!
  • This is only my opinion, but it is the correct one! You better get there, pay to get up to the tower and enjoy the view, this is a must when visiting Oslo. I really recommend it!
  • Good city view from top of the Ski jump area. However, it is not-free. Ski museum is quite short.
