Flights to Oslo

Why visit Oslo?

Oslo has stepped out of the shadow of its Nordic neighbours. The Norwegian capital now rivals them all for music, culture and even design.

Local hotspot

The former working-class neighbourhood of Grünerløkka is home to parks, markets, boutiques and the city’s main food hall.

You probably didn’t know

Oslo’s main pedestrian street, Karl Johans gate, is named after a French King of Sweden and Norway. He ruled from Stockholm, couldn’t speak Norwegian, and had no power of veto against the Norwegian parliament.

Suggested reading about Oslo

The Redbreast (2006), the first of Jo Nesbø’s crime novels featuring Inspector Harry Hole to be translated into English.

Things to do in Oslo


Norwegians have been frequent travellers ever since the days of the Vikings, so it's no surprise the city's main food hall (Mathallen) is dominated by European influences. Sample treats from a Parisian bakery, “pintxos” from the Basque country and organic produce from Tuscany. When you fly to Oslo, look hard and you'll find the best Norwegian seafood too. Downstairs, Smelteverket invites you to enjoy American soul food and craft beers in its industrial atmosphere overlooking the river. Upstairs, highly inventive Hitchhiker restaurant serves street food in a laidback restaurant setting. A trip to Mathallen and its surroundings is likely to last a lot longer than lunch.

A bit off the beaten path and more or less hidden behind an anonymous door Pjoltergeist may take a bite out of your wallet if you go with the full 8-course set-menu, but your tastebuds will probably thank you. Staying in Oslo, try a pre-dinner “pjolter” (a Norwegian Highball offshot) and tuck in on Norwegian-Japanese-Korean fusion dishes.


Gourmet burger joints have been popping up all over Oslo lately. Munchies, along with Døgnvill, Illegal Burger and Kverneriet is one of the places you’re most likely to hear when asking locals for their favourite.

Funky Fresh Foods

Despite Norway’s traditional diet of meat and fish, there is a growing vegan movement with over 100 vegan-friendly eateries around the capital. Before visitng Oslo, download the free app from to explore the options available. One highly-rated haunt is the Funky Fresh Foods vegan and raw food restaurant at the Norwegian Centre for Design and Architecture, just a short walk along the river from Mathallen (the city’s food hall).

Cheap eats

If money is tight, some of Oslo’s cheapest eats can be found in the side-streets around Torggata. The Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai restaurants all offer daily deals, which are even cheaper at lunchtime. Just watch out if you order a beer, as it may double the amount of your bill!

The Villa and Revolver

In Oslo, nightclubs don’t get busy until midnight because of the “vorspiel” concept, which sees the leafy suburbs light up with pre-parties, powered by supermarket-bought beer. If you don't get invited to a vorspiel (pre-party), head to one of the clubs around Youngstorget when the clock strikes midnight. The Villa Dancing regularly welcomes some of the world’s biggest names in electronica to its decks, while nearby Revolver is the place for rock music, beer and sweaty gigs in the intimate basement.


If you are traveling to Oslo and you’re on the hunt for great cocktails in stylish settings, speakeasy Himkok is the place to go. “Himkok” is Norwegian slang for moonshine, and these guys more than justify their name by distilling their own spirits and whip up some of Oslo’s finest cocktails. If cider's more you're thing, Himkok also features the biggest cider bar in town.


It’s becoming less and less of a secret that the Norwegian craft beer scene is flourishing, which is also reflected by the number of craft beer pubs popping up in Oslo the later years. Crowbar, known just as “Kråka” (the Crow) to most locals, sits among the top places to. Offering 20-something quality beers on tap ranging from their own, house-brewed Crow ales to other local and international brands, craft beer enthusiasts will most certainly feel at home here.


If you are staying in Oslo on Sunday there is only one option worth considering. Riverside club Blå hosts the Frank Znort quartet on almost every Sunday of the year. The Oslo institution starts at 4pm, but you can expect the fun to last well into the night.


Follow the skinny jeans and whipped blonde haircuts to Grünerløkka for a unique shopping experience of thrift stores combined with luxury boutiques. Markveien is where you’ll find one of Oslo’s most interesting shops: the vintage clothing and mod styling of Robot.

Chillout Travel Cafe

Hop next door to plan your next trip at the Chillout Travel Cafe, where in addition to shopping for a new backpack or travel gadget, you can sip a latte and enjoy a cinnamon bun while browsing the travel-book library.

The National Gallery

If you visit Oslo, there’s the opportunity to see one of the world’s most famous paintings with none of the crowds you find at the Louvre or Santa Maria delle Grazie. Just remember, you'll see Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” at the National Gallery, and not the Munch Museum.

The Viking Museum, the Kon-Tiki Museum and the Fram Museum

Take a boat out to the Bygdøy peninsular to explore Norway’s seafaring past. You’ll find three real Viking ships and the remains of settlements at the Viking Ship Museum, the original raft from the Thor Heyerdahl's Easter Island expedition at the Kon-Tiki Museum, and the strongest wooden ship ever built at the Fram Museum.

The Corkscrew toboggan run

For the adventurous, Oslo's forests offer year-round opportunities and are easily reached by the city metro. Hike, fish and swim in the summer, while winter thrill-seekers can rent a sledge and try out the famous Corkscrew toboggan run. If you stay on the sledge all the way to the bottom, you simply take the city metro back up the hill and start all over again

The Vigeland Park

The 200+ stone, bronze and iron statues at Vigeland Park in Oslo will fascinate, inspire and amuse. Set in the pleasant surroundings of Frogner Park, Oslo’s biggest open space, Vigeland Park is the world's largest sculpture park made by a single artist – Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943).
