Music at Easter
As always, the Inferno Metal Festival takes place at Easter. Abbath and more than 30 other bands will be performing this year’s festival 12–15 April.
Other music highlights this Easter include the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra and the Norwegian Soloists' Choir's joint Easter Concert, and Oslo Cathedral Choir and Barokkanerne performing Bach's Saint Matthew Passion.
See our concert calendar for more suggestions.
There are sightseeing tours by bus and boat every day during Easter.
The Opera House offers guided tours in English every day through the holidays. Go behind the scenes at this architectural masterpiece!

We haven't had a lot of snow in Oslo this winter, but we're hoping for great skiing conditions up in the hills of Oslo.
For downhill skiing, Oslo Winter Park is open every day during Easter, if the conditions allow it. And you can probably still go cross-country skiing in the highest parts of the Oslo forest.
