Description

Holmenkollen National Ski Arena is the most visited tourist attraction in Norway. It includes the Holmenkollen Ski Museum & Jump Tower, shops, a café and a ski simulator. World Cup Nordic skiing events take place here every winter, and in 2011 the new state-of-the-art ski jump arena hosted the 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 from 2011 is 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 Ski museum are contained in one holistic diagram. 

The jump is made out of 1000 tons 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.
