Vettakollen is a hill and neighborhood in the borough of Vestre Aker in Oslomarker, Norwaymarker.

The hill lies west of Sognsvannmarker and southeast of VoksenÄsen and Holmenkollenmarker, and measures 419 metres above mean sea level. The built-up residential area south of the hill is served by the Oslo Metro station Vettakollenmarker.

The name stems from the beacon hill's former use as the site of a beacon ( ). Before modern times, such beacons were set alight on a series of hills to constitute an alarm system. The naming is found in other hills, such as VardÄsen, Varingskollen and probably Brannfjell.
