Nice building with best charecteristic of being an opera place. Very clean eventhough it was heavily raining outside. Some food courts at the base floor which was not seems good idea for the place. Overall great to be there! Recomended!

We did not go inside but if you walk/climb to the top of the building, it gives beautiful views of the harbour and the city. The building is constructed to represent an iceberg and I'm sure when the city is covered in snow, it would certainly look like one!

We were unable to get a ticket for the tour as it seems to sell out one day in advance. However one can walk around the main lobby and the entire outside for free. This building is a must to see if you find architecture and design interesting. The views from there of Oslo are memorable and camera worthy.

Be warned you do it on your own risk). Lived the view at the top of the building of the harbour and the sea.... More

The Opera House in Oslo is a magnificent building both inside and out. It definitely competes with Sydney in providing the WOW factor. Would definitely recommend a visit.

If you visit Oslo be sure to visit the Opera House, absolutely stunning. Very modern, and so beautiful inside. Climb up the ramps outside to the roof and get lovely views of the city. We didn't eat in the cafe/restaurant but it was very expensive. £17.50 for a dessert!

Seriously, it's well worth a trip just to walk around the roof... and if you can, go at different times of day: it has a very different feel at 6am, say, than at 8pm! Fantastic views, easily accessible, and well worth a trip inside, too: some lovely costumes on display, and the architecture inside is as interesting and impressive as... More
