Nationaltheatret is an underground metro station and tram stop serving Vika and the city center of Oslo, Norway. It is located on the Common Tunnel of the Oslo Metro and on the Briskeby Line of the Oslo Tramway. Also located at the same place is Nationaltheatret Station of the Drammen Line. The station is served by all six lines of the metro, and lines 13 and 19 of the tramway. In addition, several bus services call at the station. It is named for the National Theatre located nearby.
The tram stop in the area opened in 1894. Nationaltheatret was the first underground station in the Nordic Countries; construction of a 1.6km tunnel from Majorstuen to the city center started in 1912, but was not finished until 1928. Until the 1987 opening of Stortinget, Nationaltheatret was the city terminus for the four western light rail lines: the Holmenkollen Line, the Røa Line, the Sognsvann Line (from 1934) and the Kjelsås Line (from 1942). The mainline railway station opened in 1980, and in 1993, the light rail station was upgraded to allow metro trains to run through it.

  • Vi var her å så "Den kjempestore pæra". Innslippet gikk veldig smertefritt. Var ingen billettkotroll, litt rart, men greit nok. Venteområdet på utsiden av salen virket ikke stort men det ble aldri noe...  more »
  • Very convenient location in the heart of the town. Norway largest theater. They are mainly showing the works of Ibsen. There was a bronze statue of Ipsen.

  • Fin forestilling i vakre omgivelser. Når man bestiller billetter til forestilling, står det i bestillingen at man må være ute i god tid før forestillingen, og at dørene åpner en time før forestillinge...  more »

  • A charming old building in a classical architecture located downtown Oslo. Easily accessible by metro and other public transportation. Lovely exterior and interiors, work out a bit with are (will be soon closed for renovations), stages plays and theatre in Norwegian. There is a park around, nice place to hang out during the summer.
  • One of the best theater at Oslo. Conferable and a lot of fun. It is small but high quality artistic. Historical and a must visit destination for tourists.
  • The National Theatre was founded as a private institution and weathered several financial crises until 1929, when the Norwegian government started providing modest support. A number of famous Norwegians have served as artistic directors for the theatre, but Vilhelm Krag who took over in 1911, is credited as having brought the theatre into its "golden age."
  • Very nice place to watch Indian movie and King's palace is awesome
  • Nice visiting resort and main metro station for ferries
