If you are a sport lover you should definitely visit in Holmenkollen. It got is own history to tell. Also there is a beautiful view to the Oslo centrum. Next year to the toughest race again, awesome location to take part of that kind of race!

We stopped here as part of a city tour and would have liked to have more time to explore the area. It's an amazing site to visit! In the summer they have a zip line going down it!

Must go on the top of the tower. Whole Oslo and Oslo fjord on your plate. Place for making a lots of photos and excellent experience. Ski museum, not so attractive, nothing new, usual old ski stuffs...

Wonderful views of Oslo and the surrounding area and fascinating ski museum which includes history, jumping, alpine, and nordic disciplines. The only drawback was the long wait and crowds to take the elevator to the top of the tower and back.

The ski jump is interesting but not a place that will blow you away unless you have never seen or been on a ski jump. The museum is okay but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. I have to confess I have seen several ski jumps and they are far more impressive in the winter when... More

Loved the summer time use of the ski jump. Water filled pit with fun artistic creations. Great family fun.

This is a true tribute to engineering and going to the top by tram and peering down, you can imagine the foolish courage necessary to complete a jump. Amazing view of Oslo and it's fjord. Be prepared to climb!

Even traveling by transit to the ski jump and museum was great. Traveled through some beautiful areas of the city. The museum was very interesting covering ski jumping, downhill and cross country, clothing etc. Some skiis on display were hundreds of years old. The observation deck provided unbelievable views of Oslo and the area. Will never watch the sport again... More

Until you stand next to a ski jump you will never realise what bottle or stupidity these guys have. Unbelievable. Going there when there is a competition on has been added to my "must do" list. There are also simulators to try to get experience of skiing or bobsleigh. Not too expensive either. Daredevils can have a go at the... More

Great View! Interesting exhibits. We took the streetcar there. It's a nice ride, but it's still a bit of a walk after you get to the station. The view from the top is excellent, so be sure to go up to the top after you have looked at the exhibits in the museum.
