A must-do in Oslo is a walk up to the roof of the Opera for the best views of Barcode and of Oslofjord. Especially fun at night when the lights of the Islands are shining!

It´s heart of Oslo and gorgeous house of Opera. There are many buildings around Opera. Not far from main Railway Central Station and Opera Thon Hotel. Beautiful view of seaside Oslo Fjord in evening.
