One of teh most iconic place in Oslo, great view. Do walk all the way to the top to get the best view, especially during sunset. Can be really windy (went in mid Nov 2017) , so be caution.

The opera house allows you to walk right up onto the top of the building. When visiting Oslo I watched the sunset from the top, it was beautiful. Mind, there was a few cheeky seagulls.

Beautiful building that is definitely worth a visit during a trip to Oslo. You can wander around the outside, and on top of the building freely. It is a very photogenic building that looks like an iceberg emerging from the water. The inside is simple...More

We were staying across the road at Thon Opera Hotel and wandered across, as we live in Sydney where we have the famed Opera House to check it out. The architecture is brilliant and the wood work inside is spectacular.

I really enjoyed myself when I went here to see Wozzeck. The building is amazing, the service is good and the performance was brilliant.

No it is free, the building is built in such a way that you can access the roof from the outside! It is broad, and safe, but in the winter it does get a bit slippery! Enjoy the view. Helen
