Ski Jump in Oslo

Holmenkollen Ski Jump

Oslo's Holmenkollen Ski Jump has a museum, zipline, and views of the city and fjord.

Perched above Oslo, the Holmenkollen Ski Jump is not just a sports facility; it's a symbol of national pride and a reminder of Norway's ski culture. This ski jump has held competitions since the late 19th century and was rebuilt for the 1952 Winter Olympics. Its outline is as noticeable as the views it provides from the top.

The Holmenkollen's current structure, an impressive piece of engineering, stands 60 meters (nearly 197 feet) high and stretches 134 meters (439 feet) long. More than a platform for sports, it includes the Ski Museum, the world's oldest of its kind, showing more than 4,000 years of skiing history. Visitors can see exhibits on polar exploration and snowboarding, showing the development of winter sports.

A highlight is the ski simulator, allowing guests to experience a ski jump without the cold. For those looking for excitement, a zipline copies the jumpers' descent. The climb to the jump tower provides a view of Oslo, the fjord, and the surrounding area.

You can get there by public transport or a scenic drive, Holmenkollen is a sports venue and a cultural site. Whether you visit during the busy winter season or the mild summer, the place remains lively with events and training sessions, offering a look at athletes' skills.

As a representation of Norway’s winter sports tradition, Holmenkollen Ski Jump welcomes visitors to see the history of ski jumping and connect with the enthusiasm that has driven skiers through history.
