A local attraction that combine modern architecture with natural landscapes, with the goal that residents can participate in their community.

A bird’s-eye view of Oslo
Stovner Tower, is a 260-meter-long circling walkway, raging 15 meters up in the air, located at Stovner, 30 minutes from Oslo’s city center. Stovnertårnet in Norwegian, was inspired by a bird’s flight into the sky. You’ll find yourself walking among the treetops, with a view overlooking the trees and hills of the Grorud Valley, all the way to the Oslo Fjord. Along the pathway to the top, there are several plateaus representing birds’ nests where you can sit together with your friends, relax, and enjoy the view.
The posts that support the structure also serve as birdhouses for local species like the common swift, a type of bird that thrives as part of a flock. The walkway is accessible for disabled visitors and is also lined with railings over a meter high, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for all. In the evening, the Stovner Tower comes to life in a whole new manner with captivating lights that serve to both emphasize its interweaving path and keep everyone safe.


Design intent
The tower is built in collaboration with the District of Stovner and the Municipality of Oslo’s Agency for Urban Environment. Funding was provided by the city’s Agency for Urban Development and Groruddalen project. The Groruddalen project, aims to improve services and local environments with the goal that residents will become more economically independent and participate more actively in their community.
Stovnertårnet is a part of a larger transformation of Stovner district. With focus on social sustainability, public health and placemaking Stovnertårnet is a local attraction that combine modern architecture with natural landscapes and invite to experiences for urban outdoor life that’s free and open all day year around.
