Holmenkollen ski jump with the ski museum
By public transportation, we will reach Holmenkollen, a place for everyone both in summer and winter, located 375 m above sea level.
Holmenkollen is an historical landmark in Norwegian consciousness it embodies more than a century of skiing competitions.
The Holmenkollen Ski Jump is world famous and an international symbol for ski jumping and the sport of skiing in general. The new ski jump was built to host the World Championship 2011.
Inside the ski jump is the Ski Museum, the oldest of its kind in the world. The museum presents more than 4000 years of skiing history as well as Norwegian polar exploration artifacts. The museum also presents an exciting documentary where you can experience the magic of the northern lights on film: "The northern lights - a lifetime experience".
The observation deck on top of the ski jump offers a great panoramic view of Oslo on a clear day.

Agnes is an incredible guide! She picked us up at our ship, and spent the day with us in Oslo. We had arranged a private tour, just 3 adults and 2 teenagers (14 & 18). It was an extremely hot day, but Agnes was impervious to the heat. She moved us right along, which is exactly what we wanted. She took us everywhere we wanted to go, and a great deal more! She timed everything perfectly, as we combined public transportation with walking. I can't imagine that anyone else could have done a better job.
