This beautiful white building, which has won many awards for its design, hosts Norway’s greatest performance company. The rich and varied programmes are always vivid and riveting, but plenty of people visit just to be able to climb to the top of the roof. Go at dusk and watch the lights come on around the harbour. It’s magical and romantic. Then come down and stroll along the harbour. The whole outside area is free to be in, and makes for great people and scenery watching. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Oslo Itinerary 2 Days.

Nice place. Good views from the top. Be careful in the wintertime, very slippery to walk up to the roof. Worth seeing when in Oslo.
The building itself is definitely a sight you must see in Oslo. The architecture is very modern and impressive, I can‘t say anything about the inside though as I did not go there. Especially the roof you can walk on is very cool and a nice spot to take pictures on. The part downstairs where the seagulls stroll around is very cool too. All in all, an iconic sight in Oslo and so CLEAN! My advice for all travellers: wear windproof and rainproof jackets! It can be suuuuper windy on the roof!
The building is amazing! You can get some nice camera shots on the top, but pay attention to the floor if there was snow in the past days. The way to the top is very slippery, without much help provided, I would say that the administration do not want to have much visitors in the top, so basically they did nothing to garantee the safety of the adventure people who try to get to the top. A must improve point to an incredible structure (inside and outside).
A must see if you visiting Norway for the first time. Love the architecture! The bathrooms are free and grand! Lovely sunset views
Very attractive place for tourists, just near the train station. Spectacular view on the downtown, bay and on the port. On the photo a view from the roof.
