From the ground, the roof of the Oslo Opera House slopes steeply up, creating an expansive walkway past the high glass windows of the interior foyer. Visitors can stroll up the incline and stand directly over the main theater and enjoy views of Oslo and the fjord.

Builders in Norway are not encumbered by the European Union safety codes. There are no hand rails to hamper views at the Oslo Opera House. Ledges and dips in the stone walkway force pedestrians to watch their steps and focus on their surroundings.
