Sculptures outside are surprising but the building is ordinary. I didn't see a concert to test sound quality.

I find most other concert halls to big, but this is just the right size so it is much easier to Connect With the artist or orchestra etc. This time I went to the smallest concert hall in Oslo Konserthus which only takes 250-300 People, and then you really get Close to the artist! The restrooms are not changed since... More

I was here for a rock concert (don't know if that's unusual because it seems like it would be for fancier events) but the concert was great. Generally I prefer to stand but the seating was quite nice here and the whole place seemed pretty laid back. The sound was great. I only found beer/wine and wish they had a... More

Oslo Consert Hall is very centrally located, but offers adequate parking for cars very close and it makes it very easy to visit the Concert Hall. Efficient handling of tickets and a very nice wardrobe area, spacious and efficient. Minimal with queues though the concert was fully booked. Inside the concert hall is very nice. Highly recommendable as concert hall.... More

We happened to see some "wild postings" for a Flamenco show and decided to go to the Konserthus. It's a lovely space, easily walkable from the center of town. The concert hall we were in had great acoustics, and comfortable amphitheater style seating, so every seat was a good seat. The price for the show was very reasonable at about... More

It opened in 1977. Almost the whole big concert hall is covered with red wood, excellent acustics. The Oslo Filharmoniske Orkester gave a concert - it was excellent.

This concert, at first Beethoven's Symphony no 4 and then Rachmaninov's Piano concerto no 3 with Håvard Gimse, was wonderful. Håvard Gimse's performance was fantastic. The space for our legs was not especially large. If you are planning to visit Oslo Consert Hall ask for a seat with better space than we got.

Great to see Riverdance again 20 years later, but ruined by bad / too load sound. a consert hall should do better. Comfy seats and efficient facilities. Pricy.
