Oslo is a large international city. The capital city of Norway can offer a whole world of adventure and experiences no matter the season; much more than any other city in Norway.
All you have to do is get there.
Norway’s capital city has played a central role throughout history, dating all the way back to the time the city was founded by Harald Hardråde in 1048. Oslo has a wealth of well-known and less well-known historical attractions that are all worth a visit.
Oslo loves visitors and is a great place to visit. You will find it extremely difficult to get bored in Oslo. Dine in Michelin star restaurants or explore Grünerløkka, a former working class neighbourhood that has now come to life with numerous charming cafés, restaurants and bars offering delicious menus. If you are fond of shopping, Grünerløkka can offer original designer stores and alluring vintage shops.
Oslo has a rich cultural life with numerous festivals, major and minor plays and concerts, wonderful galleries and museums and beautiful architecture throughout the city.
We recommend planning your visit to Oslo in advance so you make sure you don't miss out on anything – there is so much to explore.
If you ask the locals what they are most proud of in their city, they will most probably say Nordmarka – a vast stretch of unspoilt wilderness right on their doorsteps.
Have a great trip to Oslo!
