At the very top of Oslo towers the new Holmenkollen Ski Jump, the world’s most modern ski jump. It is an imposing architectural monument of steel and concrete, and one of the first designer ski jumps ever to be built. And as of recently, the Ski Jump hooked up with Airbnb to offer you a rather quaint and unusual accommodation on your next visit to the capital of Scandi cool, Oslo.
Holmenkollbakken, a large ski jump, is a famous landmark in Oslo, Norway. It’s located only a short car or tube ride from the city centre.
Built in 1892, the ski jump has since been rebuilt 19 times in total. The last rebuild took place between 2008 and 2010, when the entire structure was demolished and rebuilt. Holmenkollen is today one of the worlds most modern ski jumps.
The room, which is situated at the top of the ski jump will offer you amazing 360 degrees views over Oslo, the city and the fjord as well as the surrounding forrest and hill area. This must truly be a once in a lifetime experience, for someone who is not afraid of heights that is.
The top floor of the striking glass-walled ski jump is temporarily being transformed into a strikingly stylish penthouse, equipped with all the comfort you should need and decorated with leading Norwegian interior design brands -as well as featuring breathtaking views.
Now, the chance have passed to enter the competition to win a night in the one of the worlds perhaps quirkiest b&b’s! But perhaps we will see a reappearance of this amazing chance due to the extensive press cover this collaboration between Airbnb and Visit Norway has received. Who knows. Fingers crossed -as I’m definitely not scared of heights. Are you?
