A historic landmark in the Norwegian consciousness, Holmenkollen embodies more than a century of skiing tradition. Inside the actual ski jump is the Holmenkollen Ski Museum, the world's oldest ski museum. The museum presents over 4,000 years of skiing history and polar exploration artifacts. The observation deck on top of the jump tower offers panoramic views of Oslo. Open 365 days a year!

If you're an adrenaline junkie in need of a fix in Oslo, come here! The zip wire is incredible and worth going. It's even more significant given that this is an iconic ski jumping venue.

To overlook the city and see where the City of Oslo lies beneath is what this attraction offers. Make sure you go on a clear day. It is not the highest in the world but the winding train ride to this destination is an experience. Also, in the tower, take the time to go see the video in the theater,... More

The museum is good, but not great. However, is is allways exciting to visit one of the most classic ski jumping hills in the world. What a spectacular view, and if you ar of the daring type you can (at a quite high cost during the summer) take the zip-liner simulating an actual ski jump.

The jump tower with its modern architecture and nice view is worth a visit. If you need a challenge try the zip line, it gives you the feeling of a ski jump without risking of your Life. The museum is also interesting (at least for scandinavians).

We have visited the Holmenkollen in a competition day. It was a great experience to participate in this event and see those men flying! However, we couldn't have visited the Tower, but have been delighted by the view over Oslo in a sunny day, even from the ground! We have also exeperience the simulator and left it disapointed. Not that... More

A great sight, just minutes from downtown Oslo! You do have to have good shoes though to avoid slipping on iced up patches...

Fantastic views on the road up to the Ski Jump Tower, and when you get there, the views of the Ski area are amazing. Didn't have time to go around the museum as I was there on an organised tour. I thought the cafe a bit expensive, but then so are most places in Norway, compared to the UK prices.

The Oslo card can be used on the local metro to get you to Holmenkollen station in about 30 minutes and also to gain admission to the Jump Tower and Ski Museum. There is a 15 minute uphill walk to get to the base of the tower and museum. The Jump Tower, built in 2010/2011 for the Nordic Games is... More
