Fascinating architectural structure. You can walk right up the outside of the building! The views are fantastic and it is free.

Great design and construction. Walked all over the top, around and inside. Views of the harbour and surrounding areas make this well worth a visit. Easy walking distance from the city centre, and the coffee was not bad either! Oh, do not even try this on a wet or snowy day. I cannot imagine it would be easy walking on... More

We went for a walk on the outside roof of the opera. Designed by the Architects "Snøhetta", the ice-block looking building gives a spectacular view and feeling when walking. Even if the surrounding is more as a construction ditch at time being, I strongly recommend this as a stop of the walk of Oslo. Free entry :-)

The inside is amazing with the huge windows looking straight out to... More

Never been stood up on top of an Opera hall before. You get an amazing view of the harbour, highly recommend the trip up there.

The opera in Oslo with its location 'in' the sea next to Oslo Central station is just an amazing building that i a 'must see' in Oslo as a visitor. Located 'in' the water with an amazing view. You can take a walk on the roof off the operahouse and then get an even better view from the top. Take... More

This is a maximum 45 minutes walk on the slope. Can be planned with a short cruise or shopping visit at Oslo S.
