You will receive brief information about each attraction. Independently and at your own pace, you can explore Oslo flexibly, whenever and however you want.
Explore the many facets of the cool Norwegian capital. Oslo is located in the south of Scandinavia on the Oslo Fjord. In the 100-kilometer-long fjord you will find numerous islands, some of which are uninhabited, others excursion destinations, and some where you can swim in the summer. Island hopping is great fun and we highly advise you give it a try!
The most famous is the Bygdøy Peninsula, also known as Oslo's Museum Island. Among the things to discover here are the Norwegian Maritime Museum, the Viking Museum with three original Viking ships, and the Fram Museum, which is dedicated to polar research. The museum is named after the wooden explorer ship of the same name, which can be visited from the inside today.
By the way, the Norwegian Roald Amundsen was the first person to reach the South Pole on December 14, 1911.
Did you know that in January the days are only 6 hours long, while in June they last a whole 19 hours? The phenomenon is caused by the proximity to the Arctic Circle. During the so-called ‘white nights’ in summer, evening twilight goes directly into dawn. There are hardly any stars to be seen and it barely gets dark.
Enjoy the atmosphere in the harbor district Aker Brygge. The former shipyard area is now a popular shopping district. Its location directly on the water gives the neighborhood a charming flair, with numerous stores and boutiques that invite you in as your stroll past.
A tour of Oslo would not be complete without stopping at the medieval 14th-century fortress of Akershus, the Royal Palace, and the Opera House right on the harbor, whose roof is a gigantic viewing platform. Huge windows, granite and marble make the opera house rise out of the fjord like an icy glacier, earning it the nickname, Iceberg. Even a 16 meter portion of it lies beneath the surface of the water.
If you're looking for a typical Instagram photo motif, you should go to the Acrobat’s Bridge, whose innovative steel and glass construction is particularly eye-catching at night with its sensational colored lighting.
Oslo is known for having a very unique skyline. The twelve high-rise buildings in the Bjørvika district all have different heights and widths, with undeveloped areas in between. That's why Oslo's skyline looks like a barcode from a distance.
