Owner description: A historic landmark in the Norwegian consciousness, Holmenkollen embodies more than a century of skiing tradition. Inside the actual ski jump is the Holmenkollen Ski Museum, the world's oldest ski museum. The museum presents over 4,000 years of skiing history and polar exploration artifacts. The observation deck on top of the jump tower offers panoramic views of Oslo. Open 365 days a year!

I decided to hike down from Frognerseteren Metro and enjoyed some stunning views as I did, but nothing compared to the view from the top! After hiking up the grandstand to where the competitors set off, I went through the museum and up to the lift to the very top of the tower. WOW! It was blowing a heck of a gale, but it offered the most incredible views from the top...Free with Oslopass, and an absolute must!

This was the best view of Oslo and Oslofjord, hands down. It was a short walk up hill from the train, but it was well worth it. The museum has a lot of interesting artifacts from skiing through the years and there is a little cafe where you can have a snack. Nothing prepared me for the elevator ride to the top of the ski jump, which was a wonderful and frightening view - I have a new appreciation for ski jumping! You can go even further up to a lookout deck above the ski jump, which has amazing views all around. We were up there alone which made it difficult to get a good photo, but I will not forget the view any time soon anyhow. This is a must do when visiting Oslo!

I have been here more than once and the views are spectacular. If you don't ski jump yourself, then you cannot imagine what it looks like to look down this jump where the 1950 Olympics took place...I think that was the year. Not an easy climb or young or older, but the drop down the jump is well fenced (but not the first time I went in the 80's) for safety. The museum is fascinating and one I really enjoy seeing repetitively, especially the old ski pole(s) with drinking cups or other useful tools carved on top of the handle! Great idea. Fun for the family.

We visited and the car parking was very close to the attraction which is good. Very clear signs pointing you in the right direction. Amazing view over oslo and the bay/fjord and I could have stayed up there a lot longer. Norway is such a stunning country and well worth the visit any time of the year. Only one point I would say is that the queue for the jump tower was very long and took about 30-45 mins to get into the lift.
It is a towering and prominent landmark that can be seen from a lot of the city. And is lit up at night.

I recommend visiting Holmenkollen when you visit Oslo. The highlight is the Simulator where you are in a capsule that makes it feel like you are over 200 km per hour. Also, there are great views of the surrounding area.
