One of the most impressive lots of Airbnb, which is now unfortunately not available. But what an idea!

The Holmenkollen Springboard was built in 1892,near the capital of Norway. Many championships were held here, including jump competitions in the framework of the Winter Olympics. At the highest point of the springboard, where athletes usually prepare to jump, a furnished penthouse was equipped with huge windows to the floor, from which one of the best views of Oslo, snowy mountain peaks and forests that go beyond the horizon, opens. 250 steps lead to the apartments from the bottom, and on the ground floor there is the first ski museum in the world.
