Holmenkollen is a neighborhood in the Vestre Aker borough of Oslo, Norway. In addition to being a residential area, the area has been a ski recreation area since the late 19th century, with its famous, eponymous, ski jump arena hosting competitions since 1892. To the north, the area borders to the woodlands area Marka.

The Holmenkoll Line of the Oslo Metro runs through the neighborhood, serving the stations Besserud and Holmenkollen.

The Holmenkollen chapel was destroyed by arson in 1992 by black metal artist Varg Vikernes.
