Cool views from the top of the city and a nice little jaunt about. Not something we spent a lot of time on but very cool architecture.

Our experience here was most rewarding. The building alone is worth a visit. The production we saw was a series of 4 modern dances, three never performed publicly before.

What a wonderful arquitecture and design spot, which structure was made for walking on the roof and offers an amazingly cool sit-down experience. Strolling literally above the opera house we can unveil surprisingly different angles of the city, from the fjord archipelago with small, traditional...More

The design of the National Opera and Ballet is beautiful both inside and out. The building was designed so that everyone could use the space both inside and outside. It is one of the few buildings where you can walk on the roof and enjoy...More

Yes, no entry fees, to look around in the foyer, cafe or restaurant (and roof of course). Had lunch at the restaurant, good food.
