Main tourist attractions in Oslo


Our budget rooms and flats are located close to many of the main tourist attractions in Oslo:

- The Munch Museum (open every day), just a 10-15 min walk from our flats
- The New Opera (a 10-15 min walk from our flats)
- The Royal Castle
- Holmenkollen ski jump arena (take the underground ”T” line number 1 to “Holmenkollen”)
- The Nobel Peace center
- Boat trip to Bygdøy (bus number 30 during the winter season). In Bygdøy you'll find the Folksmuseum, the Vikingship Museum and the Kon Tiki Museum.


Our personal tips (things they won’t tell you in the tourist office):

• A walk along the Akerselva River and park during the day is really nice and relaxing and will show you a different side of Oslo.

• If you wanna try some traditional Norwegian food the restaurant Stortorvets Gjæstgiveri is the place to go. The address is Grensen 1 (next to the main street). They offer traditional Norwegian food at affordable prices. Web:

• Grünerløkka (just a short walk from the flats) is a trendy area with lots of restaurants, pubs, bars and parks. A walk in this area is really nice.

• Not many tourists know there is a bar at the top of Oslo Plaza/Radisson Blue (the tallest building in Oslo, you can clearly see it from the apartment). You’ll normally have to buy something (coffe/beer/drink) to sit down and enjoy the view, but it’s definitely worth a visit!

• The Icebar (Adress: Kristian IV’s gate 12) is the only permanent bar in Norway made entirely of ice and is kept at minus 5 degrees at all time. Everything inside is made out of crystal clear ice. The ICEBAR OSLO is operated in 45 minute time slots and you will be given a designer thermal cape with a hood to keep you warm during your visit.

• Bogstadveien (near Majorstua T-station) is the one of the best shopping area in Oslo. Oslo City (near the main station) is the biggest shopping centre in the city centre and is usually very crowded during the weekend.
