“A hill..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Surely great for those interested, this is the most famous ski jumping hill in the world - but how many really are interested in that? Nice location, though.

“beautiful views, breathtaking walks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

This place was a gorgeous place to take a walk. My friend and I rode up to the top and walked down. If I didn't already know what it was, the huge ski jump looked like a spaceship. I can't wait to come back to Oslo with my boyfriend and show him how absolutely breathtaking this place is. There's a restaurant at the top where my friend and I had apple cake with cream and hot chocolate. It was delicious and just made our long walk down sweeter.

“Holmenkollen Ski Jump”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

The Holmenkollen ski jump is a very interesting structure - in fact it can be termed an engineering feat.

“The views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

What a way to see Oslo.From the top of the ski jump tower all of Oslo and its surrounds are there for you to see.
If you don't like heights I suggest you give it a miss.
Elevator to the top is rather expensive 100 krone/person

“The Ski Jump Tower gives you a fantastic view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Although this is one of the more expensive attractions it is a great one to visit: the view from the Ski Jump Tower is tremendous.
They also made a great effort of the Museum surrounding it, to add some extra value.
