I arrived at The Norwegian National Opera and Ballet on a Sunday evening around Easter. Not much was going on that day and only a handful of tourists when I visited. The place looks so modern! You could walk up on the slanted side or...More

Take the tour and you will get to see the front and back of the house and have it all explained to you. Main auditorium is very striking. As interesting is all the 'behind the scenes' areas on view--scenery shops, behind the stage, practice rooms,...More

Very cozy place! Architecture and art is wonderful! I recommend to get there either early in the morning (to avoid the tourists) or go there for the sunset! Spectacular views of the sea 😍

A must see in Oslo. It is a wonderful building and the walk on the roof is superb. Lots of construction going on around the this area, but when finished it will be a superb place. The Opera itself is super worth a visit. Inside...More

We did not go to see any performance here but we went there to get on the roof. It was like a park without tree or lawn. It was right by the harbour and the view into the harbour was nice. Walking up the slope...More

We just visited the place outside which has an incredible view. The possibility to walk until the roof it's pretty cool. Yu can go inside for the difference events (off course) but also to see the amazing design of the lobby. Simply perfect.

We walked around this awesome building. It is sloped in parts and when you “summit” it, you can get great 360 degrees views of the entire city. An architectural masterpiece!

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
