“nice view”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

The building itself is beautiful to look at. You can walk up to the roof and look at the view out to the sea of Oslo and some parts of the city. Alot of people go there to get tanned, and for the people who's not there to get tanned, it can get a little annoying to watch your step all the time.

“Fantastic view”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Beautiful view. Better go on a sunny day (early morning or late afternoon) and try to avoid the crowds.

“summer nights out”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Very impressive building. As we arrived we saw a tv show filming just on the water edge. Was great. Lots of people enjoyed the "veranda" of this special building.

“Modern building, magnificent views”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

I walked up to the top of the roof early in the morning, when there were no other visitors. Be warned that it is a strenuous climb, either up the steps or up the actual marble roof, but the views from the top, of the fjord and over the city towards the ski slope, are magnificent. I only wished that I had gone up the previous evening, when there had been a stunning sunset!

“Amazing”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Firstly it is right to mention I did not look at the insides of the Opera house. On the outside it is a masterpiece with it´s white marble reaching all around. You can walk on the roof from waterlevel up and around it. The sights are beautiful and everything about this house is a sight for soure eyes. Highly recommended on a sunny day.
