This is a unique building that is definitely worth visiting if only for the views from the roof. On a sunny day lots of people walk and sit down on the roof. We also walked inside and used their amazing free public toilets. The mens ,apparently, are especially worth visiting. My husband wanted to film them but someone else walked... More

With a trivial and genius idea to start the roof at water level and allow people to walk all around it returns back the space taken by the building to the locals and the tourists. Dogs are allowed. No parking lot by the Opera, you have to park on the opposite side of the road. Parking is very expensive.

Definitely a hallmark in Oslo and a place you should visit. Even if you ibt go inside, you can wal around it and on top of it and you will get a nice view to the city. I was just too impressed by the lack of events in the opera house. I wanted to go watch an opera or another... More

The Operahouse is very beautiful inside and outside, like a monument. Really cool you can walk up the roof to the top to see the amazing views of the city, the fjord and the surrounding Islands. Dont miss to visit!!

We enjoyed a world class performance of La Traviata in this beautiful space. The acoustics in this smallish auditorium are excellent and I doubt there is a bad seat in the house. It's easy to buy tickets on line. There's a nice discount for seniors. Plan to go early for a bite to eat or a drink so you can... More

This is such an interestiing design for a public building. People can walk all over the roof, and the interior is light and bright.

The building architecture leaves it to wandering about the roof and the sides of the building. It was designed so the visitor could embrace the cool sea air and wander about to the very top to view as much of the seascape and the beautiful city/wood interior of the building. It's well worth the time to visit, wander about and... More
