In Oslo, Norway, here are 5 Top Spots to Visit, plus two bonus stops just outside of the City:

1. Deichman Bjørvika or the Library, next to the Oslo Opera House, is an easy free stop right by Oslo S and is an obvious must. Within a five minute walk is also the Norwegian Opera and Ballet and MUNCH Museum so add ’em all to the itinerary, even if it’s just to see the architecture.

2. Vannfontene Rådhusplassen or Fountains at City Hall Square, down by the water near Aker Brygge is a must, too, to enjoy the water settings provided by the Inner Oslofjord. Check out the Aker Brygge Marina.

3. KOK, Oslo Floating Sauna has a spot near Aker Brygge, as well as one downtown in Langkaia. Oslo Badstuforening another sauna operator, also has a spot downtown. Be sure to book one of these for a sauna spa.

KOK Oslo Floating Sauna, Aker Brygge, is the one we tried as it had more availability than the downtown locations. Definitely recommended. It’s about 270 NOK per person for a shared sauna of up to eight people and 1.5 hours. You may also book a private sauna or a sauna cruise from 3,000 NOK.

Aker Brygge is cool ’cause you may also wine and dine waterside. Olivia is a nice restaurant option. If you’re youngster, snag a drink at Louise.

4. Throughout town, you may check out many cafes and top tourist attractions including Oslo Konserthus, National Theatre, and Nasjonalmuseet – Arkitektur or the National Museum – Architecture.

5. Karl Johans is the tourist strip for shopping. And the Mall of Oslo is right next to it if you’d rather shop inside and collect your souvenirs.

Ruter Help Center for Public Transport is next to Oslo S and they’ll help you get around on the transit system. Here are two bonus stops nearby:


6. Catch the #12 tram North towards Birkelunden Public Park and you may walk back on foot, checking out more unique shops and cafes like Anne på landet – Frognerparken and Tim Wendelboe.

You may also walk to the Oslo Street Food market which has a cool, hip vibe. As an aside, in-town we thought a cool cafe was just off the Karl Johans strip at Revier.
