Travel tips:

  • Accommodation: CityBox Oslo is very well located, close to the station and a stone throw from the major attractions, very clean, minimalist, nice design and affordable. Oslo is a very expensive city, and you may appreciate this no frills option to explore the city.


  • Restaurants:
    • Elias mat & sant is a great option to taste Norwegian specialties in a romantic and classy setting with a a nice atmosphere. The menu is seasonal and consists only of fresh food from seafood to game.
    • The restaurant of the Oslo Opera House offers a menu with a local flare, that is not that easy to find in Oslo. Service may change on show nights, but it is a safe bet for lunch time.


  • Transportation: to get to and from the airport, even though there an Airport Express Train (Flytoget) we would recommend you to take the regular NSB train. Both take roughly the same time to and from the city but the Flytoget costs twice as much and runs more often.


  • Running: the green track on the interactive map is a 12-km running loop that is excellent to explore the Norwegian capital!
