Yesterday, as I was driving I suddenly realized I was one hour early for my appointment. Okay, time to be a tourist! So I decided to visit Holmenkollen.
Holmenkollen is a world famous ski jump. It was built in 1892, but has been rebuilt several times since then. Unfortunately, it is now decided they will tear it down (but rebuild it again). It's not modern enough for the jumping competitions.
Holmenkollen is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Norway. You can actually enter the tower/room at the top. I bet the view is awesome from there, but I've never tried it. The ski jump is situated in a hilly area, so you can see most of Oslo from there. This means that a lot of the inhabitants of Oslo have a view to the ski jump, me included.
I will add more photos tomorrow.
