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!

Amazing views

View is worth the trip. Take metro line 1. Very easy to find, but beware of a steep climb from the station to the tower area.

It is like climbing on a steel giant from Transformers. Vibrating and unforgettable experience. Full of success history and Olympics. Easy to reach by local train. Exquisite view from the top. Try not to be alone on the visit. Do not leave so fast: the ski museum will tell you two special stories and at the end take the picture... More

Taking the Metro - Line Frognerseteren - to Holmenkollen and walk up. The ski jump tower is impressive. The area is nice for a walk. The ride to Holmenkollen goes through some nice areas. It aslo gives a great view of Oslo

This is the place you should go on a sunny day. Take the metro line 1 towards Frognerseteren and step out at Holmenkollen. Of course you have to walk around 1 km uphill to the jump tower, but this will be rewarded: once you've taken the lift up, you have a magnifient view down to Oslo centre and Oslo Fjord.... More

Have been at least 10 times for the last 16 years at Holmekollen Ski museum and Ski Jump Tower. Ski Museum is very interesting but Ski Jump Tower is the top of the excitement! You will feel like the very young Freund, Kasai, Amman or Bardal and try to assimilate and understand/accept the first really fear in your life :-)... More

The museum gives a very interesting picture of the development of skiing, it is very well organised. The view from the top is stunning - you see why Oslo is one of the most beautiful cities in the world
