Nomadic art project overlooking Oslo's famous Opera House
SALT is a nomadic art project on Langkaia in Oslo, overlooking the Opera House. The project brings together art, music, food and architecture in several spectacular wooden constructions designed by Sami Rintala (Rintala Eggertsson Architects). Salt also has one of Oslo’s biggest outdoor seating areas which is open all year round. Here, you can enjoy the cool breeze from the fjord in summer and the warmth of the fireplaces in winter.
The programme at SALT includes concerts, art projects, debates, sauna, improv theatre and more. Sauna, good drinks and food all year long! Tickets for the events can be booked at Universe.
SALT's largest sauna has a capacity of 80 people in the amfi and holds a temperature of 60–80°C (140–176 Fahrenheit). Árdna is one of the world’s biggest saunas and on weekends, it hosts Sauna Sessions. Outside you will find a 100-year-old, 7.000-litre aquavit barrel that has been turned into a sauna holding 80–90 degrees Celsius (176–194 Fahrenheit), as well as two cold water pools (fresh and salt water) and showers.
The sauna Skroget is right next to Árdna, and is the location for various sauna rituals on weekends.
Two barrel saunas on a terrace with benches and a fireplace. The saunas are on a raised platform with a stunning view of the Oslo fjord. The saunas can be rented individually or together.
Naustet (The Boat House)
Café/bar partly built of driftwood found along the seashore, and furnished with details that may remind you of your grandmother's cosy living room. At Naustet you can get real Norwegian waffles with brown cheese, baked goods, coffee and drinks. Naustet also has its own wood-burning sauna that may be rented by groups of up to eight people at Universe.
Concert venue, club, exhibition space and debate arena with room for 350 standing guests and about 170 seated guests.
Bazaar is a bedouin inspired tent in the heart of Oslo. At 450m2, there's plenty of space to chill out in cozy booths or dance the night away, all depending on the program.
The Arctic Pyramid
The Arctic Pyramid is a majestic 70 meters long fish rack, towering like an open tunnel over the seaside promenade between the Opera house and Vippetangen. It is used as a venue for installation and art projects.
Lillehjella is SALTs outdoor stage and SALTs smallest fish rack, hosting concerts, film screenings and dance performances. Lillehjella has DJs playing carefully selected tracks in the summer months.
