“Fantastic!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

If you are visiting Oslo, don't miss to visit the Opera House close to the Central station. It is really a interesting building with good wievs over the city.

“Great for a walk and a view, book in advance for the best value night out in Oslo!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Lovely to go for a walk on the roof and take a peek at the atrium inside. The Opera is 5 minutes or so walk from the central station and very easy to find!

If you book in advance all concerts have restricted view seats available for 100 NOK which is amazing value. Of course if you can afford better seating a range is available!

You can walk on the roof of the Opera House and it offers a nice view from the roof onto the city and the water.

“Beautiful architecture”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Never mind what's playing, just go and see the building itself. If you're looking for affordable tickets, try the cheaper seats on the left and right balcony, level 1 or 2. Visibility is still more than adequate, and you get to sit by yourself. Level 3 is a bit too high.

“Don't miss this amazing structure”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

The new Opera House is a great example of terrific water front development. They are still completing the roads in the area. To get there take the overpass of the road from the train station. Then walk up to the roof from the outside. We were there at sunset and loved seeing it. Would love to have seen an opera but didn't plan ahead to make that happen.
