Oslo Opera House, Oslo, Oslo

The Basics

Plan a visit around the venue’s prestigious menu of world-class performances including modern dance and classical ballet, jazz, chamber and Baroque concerts, and operas. An hour-long guided behind-the-scenes tour covers the architecture and artistry of the performances and includes encounters with costumers and stage designers.

One of the best ways to visit the Opera House is with the Oslo City Pass, which allows free admissions to must-visit attractions such as Kon-Tiki Museum and Akershus Fortress, plus extras such as free public transportation in select zones, discounted meals, and more. Or explore the attraction as part of a walking, biking, or Segway tour. If you have more time, take a full-day tour that adds on a cruise in the fjord.

A must do in Oslo
This was one of the most beautiful tours I ever taken. Margaret, our tour guide, was the queen of Oslo. She was lovely, knowledgeable, candid, entertaining and very energetic as well. It was so easy to understand her and to follow all the information she shared. She managed the group so well ensuring the itinerary was completed in time. For those who take the cruise be aware of wind and cold. Bring your own food since there is no time during the day for a stop to take lunch. 100% recommended!!!!
