About Oslo

Providing locals and visitors with all of the joys of nature right on the doorstep

Norway’s inspiring capital city is located snuggly between dense, majestic forests and the ever present Norwegian fjord, providing locals and visitors with all of the joys of nature right on the doorstep. Although Oslo is renowned for its popularity in everything outdoors, it also boasts an outstanding selection of museums and public art exhibitions, as well as a thriving cosmopolitan culture, with an ample supply of chic coffee houses, Michelin-star restaurants and decadent night clubs. Despite its status as a capital city, the population of Oslo is surprisingly low, making it the perfect place to take in the fresh powder of the ski slopes in the morning, only to jump on a short train ride back to the beating centre of cosmopolitan Norway, with the best that local culture has to offer.

The central neighbourhoods of Oslo offer a range of accommodation from inexpensive lodgings to elegant hotels and quirky little boltholes. There’s plenty to choose from near Karl Johans Gate, including the charming luxury Hotel Continental (Stortingsgaten 24-26), or more simple and affordable Thon Hotel Spectrum (Brugata 7). The Thief (Landgangen 1) is situated in the trendy canal-lined Tjuvholmen district, with comfy rooms that feature contemporary art and plush furnishings. The imposing Rica Hotel Bygdøy Allé (Bygdøy Allé 53) is located in the affluent Bygdøy Allé neighbourhood, but is a surprisingly inexpensive option to the west of Oslo.

Both local and international brands populate the area around Karl Johans Gate, with plenty to choose from at the Oslo City Shopping Centre (Stenersgata 1). For upmarket boutiques head to nearby Akersgata, which features stores such as Mulberry (Akersgata 18), or for a more quirky and vintage style of shopping try the Grünerløkka area. Sunday’s bric-a-brac market in Birkelunden Park is worth a visit, while those after Scandinavian designs should make for Bygdøy Allé, which plays host to the eclectic Hemma Hos (Fredriksborgveien 16).

Despite garnering a reputation as a pricey city, there are still plenty of cheap eats to be found in Oslo. Grønland is found on the east side and offers a range of well-priced spots including Dattera til (Grønland 10), which features a vibrant courtyard to complement its café style. Grünerløkka is another place that’s good for affordable eateries, with Fiskkeriet (Youngstorget 2b) a great shout for fresh fish. Delicatessen (Søndre gate 8) is a lively tapas bar that often requires a wait for a table, while Alex Sushi (Strandpromenaden 11) is a trendy choice for - you guessed it - sushi. If you can get a table, splash out in style at Maaemo (Schweigaards gate 15 B), which has been bestowed with two Michelin stars and serves up exciting and inventive dishes.
