Located in the Bjørvika neighborhood, this white complex is a famous symbol of the capital. The modern building was opened in 2008 and it is attracting tourists ever since. Both the interior and exterior are worth stopping by, even if not visiting for a performance! On a sunny day, the outdoor terrace is full of people relaxing and taking in the views of Oslofjord. Be sure to spot the notable artwork floating on the water - She Lies by Monica Bonvicini.
If interested, you can go on a guided tour that will take you behind the scenes and inform you about the history of the building.
