No fault of no one but when we visited there was very heavy fog so we could not see any views ! There was no fog in Oslo before we left and came back . However I really enjoyed the museum . It was well laid out and interesting .even though it was foggy you could still sense this thing... More

If you have the time, take the train to visit this really amazing place and join the ride which allows you to feel the real thrill of the Jump Tower.

What a magnificent sight, especially when covered in snow and fog, the top of the jump peeking through the clouds. The train ride from town out to Holmenkollen (free with an Oslo Pass) took around 20 minutes and the walk up the pretty steep hill another 5 (10 if you count not being familiar with walking in snow!). Looking down... More

I had my car, so I drove there. Walking up about 50 steps to "middle station". There is the shop and jump simulator, wich I dont recommend due to poor quality of image, you only get sick. One floor up, there is the entry to the museum, which is quite interesting and worth a visit, and the elevator to top... More

Beautiful views from the top of the tower. You can do the zip line down if you want. The museum is likely the world's most extensive on ski history. Too many details for some but if you want to stay in Norway you need to understand the central role of skis in people's lives. There is also very interesting exhibitions... More

This trek up to the top of the Holmenkollen has the best views over Oslo and all the area around it. I would, however, skip the simulator ride---the motion sickness following isn't worth the money.

Coming from a Nordic country Holmenkollen is a legend and even if you're not into skiing its's worth a day tour. Holmenkollen can be easily reached by metro that does the whole distance on ground giving you a chance to admire the trip. From the Holmenkollen stop it's just a 5 minute walk uphill and your're right by the amazing... More

Liked: the long subway ride all the way up the mountain, the impressive look of the ski jump, the gift shop at the bottom. Disliked: the fact that we got there at 15:30 hrs and we were not allowed to go up the elevator to the top of the ski jump, since "there wasn't enough time!", since the ski tower... More

We walked from Oslo Central up to Holmenkollen, it was a huge walk and we did take the tram back down but it was a great day out. The Ski Jump is a great sight to see. I would reccomend for those interested in skiing to pop up for a visit.
