The opera house of Oslo is one of the most iconic buildings of the city. Located directly at the fjord the shiny new building was opened in 2008. It is designed to look like a drifting iceberg and contains more than 1,000 rooms. That is quite a surprise because it looks rather small caused by its special shape: The building is like a vast ramp on which everybody can walk up all around the clock to enjoy nice views on the harbor and the city. The facade consists to large extent of Carrara marble which costed a lot of money (more than 6 million Euros).
The Operahuset can be found in the direct vicinity of the Sentralstasjon and the Munchmuseet, it is therefore really easy to reach. If you want to enjoy wonderful views on the opera house consider booking a sauna session at the SALT.
