Nice building with good skyline views

The Opera house is short walk from the main train station, visited in late afternoon on sunny day. Pretty cool to walk on the building with nice views of the skyline from the top.

We did this right before we left Oslo! It was fun to walk on the roof and see the view of the city! Make sure to spend 30 mins checking this out!

I had the pleasure to enjoy a magnificent opera performance here as well as a guided show of the house of "back stage". The only draw back was the dysfunctional air condition and the draft and cold: all of us in the front row needed to have our coats on throughout the evening performance, I was told it cannot be...

A beautiful piece of architecture in the middle of the city. The location is very convenient for visitors and I like the idea of climbing the building a lot. It is a unique and gorgeous emblem of Oslo.

A building on which it is possible to walk up and down the roof. Provides great views. We were not able to enter building as the wee getting ready for Royal Birthday celebration

Spent some time walking around the roof and down by the harbor. Good views and a surprisingly fun time. Not often you can walk up and down a buildings roof so easily. The architecture is great.

To relax, enjoy the view. Have a break, take in the sun. Downside is that opposite of the opera is a construction site, so that's the view! And there's a lot of dust with the wind!

Nice to go up onto the roof to see the views. Relatively good value food/drink inside (for Oslo). Well worth a visit.
