This was a great place to visit to see Oslo from high up. The view of the ski jump is unbelievable. There is a mini museum inside, with old artefacts and worth a look.

This was an amazing place to see whatever the weather. I saw it with no snow on it and it was still amazing to see how steep the jump is. It is really frighting and gives you a new respect for anyone that attempts it, let alone wins a gold medal on it. I have to admit to not going... More

A 30-min mostly outdoor metro will get you there, but you will still need to climb the hill for about 15 min. It rained the day I went there, so the walk was not that pleasant, but you just have to go there and see Holmenkollen. The ski museum is more like a bonus. There is also a ski simulator... More

Definetly worth the trip. It takes about 20 minutes with the train, it's a lovely scenic ride and the views from the top are amazing. There is a also a zip line from the top to the bottom of the jump. The ski museum is also interesting, and I highy recommend to wander a bit around, the area is wonderful... More

A bit away from the city, this was a fun walk and interesting sight. The view from the top, of the city, fjords was worth the whole trip. There are some hikes from here. The museum was good too. There is a zip line from the top of the jump but it was closed while we were there

This one of the places we really wants to visit during our recent stay in Oslo - certainly weren't disappointed. The views from the top of the Tower are exceptional, as are the views from the bottom of the Ski Jump. Entrance is free if you have an Oslo pass (as is the T-bane metro train). I'd imagine that the... More

I visited Holmenkollen during late afternoon, I took metro line 1 (light blue - a train every 15 minutes) in direction "Frognerseteren" - going out at station "Holmenkollen". Then it takes about 10 minutes of brisk walk to reach the entrance to Ski Jump Tower. I was surprised that there were few people (not overcrowded like Opera). View is breathtaking.

Family enjoyed the visit. This jump is huge and requires serious leg work to take the steps up (free)-the road at the side is the much easier option. The zip lining was very neat to watch. Would be awesome to try, but teens shied away-awestruck by the magnitude

This is a must-see in Oslo. The feat of engineering of the ski jump tower and the elevator that take you there are worth the visit, as are the absolutely spectacular views miles out into the fjords and Norwegian hills.
