Holmenkollen is the hill you see on the north western side of Oslo. It takes 20-30 minutes to get here from the city centre – the view from the subway on the way up the hill is worth the trip alone!

The Holmenkollen area is a gateway to Nordmarka, one of the most popular recreational areas in the city. Tryvann and Frognerseteren are great starting points for hikes and trips summer and winter alike.

In addition to beautiful scenery, Oslo’s top attraction is located up here; Holmenkollen Ski Museum and Ski Jump. Holmenkollen also offers top-class conference hotels providing a unique setting for your meeting.

The museum opened in 1923 and is the world’s oldest museum specialized in skiing. Here you can experience 4000 years of exciting ski history through various exhibitions. Learn more about the museum here
