This is the majestic building, that offers you beautiful experience both inside, and outside walking on the roof. You can catch wonderful sunsets, site on the roof and sip vine enjoying the view, kiss with your love one on the top... If you are photographer, you will find lots of subjects and themes both inside or outside. Really worth visiting... More

My parents and I visited the Opera House for a guided tour in December last year . The tour was conducted by a member of the Opera Choir who spoke excellent English and showed us the theatres and behind the scenes. Very interesting and an hour very well spent :-)

This building is beautiful both inside and outside. Take a walk on the roof, it feels like being on a mountain, and go inside and watch the woodworks on the walls - a guided tour is great but not a must. Finally have a meal or a coffee at the seafront café inside.

Wonderful marble opera house "rising" from the sea, Oslo fjord. You can take a walk on the roof and buy a guided tour (50 min.), recommended. The main material used inside and in the atrium is oak. Stunning scandinavian architecture. Must in Oslo!

The National Opera and Ballet is a great place to see a show, but also a gorgeous destination on the fjord to go for a walk on a sunny day. It is a stunning monument and a must for any visit to Oslo!

You can take a walk on the roof, or see the special arcitecture inside and lunsj or eat dinner here. The restaurant on the seaside has nice food and a great outside serving in the warm time of the year. The other restaurant is a bit stiff. There are several scenes and sound and lights are great.
