Description

Holmenkollen National Ski Arena is one of Norway's most visited tourist attractions, and includes the Holmenkollen Ski Museum & Jump Tower, shops, a café and a ski simulator.

Holmenkollen hosts World Cup Nordic skiing events every winter, and the entire ski jump and arena was rebuilt before the 2011 FIS Nordic World Championships. Inside the ski jump is the world’s oldest ski museum, with 4000 years of skiing history on display.

The ski jump was designed by the Danish firm JDS Architects. Their design brings together all the amenities contained in the jump: rather than having a series of dispersed pavilions, everything from the judge's booths and the Royal family to the souvenir shop and the entrance to the museum are contained in one holistic diagram. 

The jump is made out of 1000 tonnes of steel and raises about 60 metres in the air. The top is cut horizontally to accommodate a viewing platform with a panoramic view of Oslo and surrounding areas.
