This large hill has been used as a ski-jump for over a hundred years! It’s hosted some of the most important ski moments and events. The jump itself is an intimidating, imposing looking structure of steel and concrete.
The museum here is nearly as old as the tower itself. It’s exhibits cover:
- The history of skiing (there are skis-equipment here from 600 AD).
- Norwegian Polar Exploration
- Modern skiing and snowboarding
- A Ski Simulator
More popular is the observation deck at the top of the jump tower, from where you may catch wonderful panoramic views of Oslo.
Kollensvevet! – a zipline using which you can jump off the Holmenkollen Tower to experience the same thrill as skiers do. You’ll drop 107 metres and the view is spectacular. It’s really expensive though, and may not always be open. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Oslo Itinerary 2 Days.

Loved this place. From the centre of Oslo it is a simple short train trip up to the hills above the city. You pay to go in the museum which contains many historical ski-related items. The highlight of the exhibition is surely the equipment from Amundsen's South Pole expedition (including notebook, skis, sled & even one of the trusty dogs which was stuffed after its death). After all this you can then get the lift up to the top of the ski jump and experience a little of how it feels to be a ski jumper. Here you can also just about pick out some of the sights of Oslo in the distance below.
Very enjoyable trip! We first thought it wouldn‘t be worth it driving up there for 40 min (by train) but after we arrived we were very happy. We saw the sunset, took lots of pictures, saw the climber cleaning the windows from outside and there were close to no people around! Very impressive scenery aswell.
If you are a skiing fanatic then it is worth a visit however for most people it’s the visit to the top of the ski jump that most are visiting for. The views from the top are spectacular. A real 360 panorama of Oslo city and the surrounding areas.
A very interesting place. You can see how the skis for ski jumping changed over time. A bit of a walk from the train stop but worth it.
Nice museum, lots to see and the view from the top is great. The kids play room is also very cool.
