City Guide Oslo

City Guide Oslo, Oslo, Norway (B)

Oslo is a city with many cultural and artistic places, but also with a wide offer of shops, restaurants, cafés and nature. If you’re planning a trip to this beautiful, Nowegian capital, two days certainly won’t be enough to spend in the city! Take enough time to explore all the nice places Oslo has to offer.

In this article I will tell you some more about ten of the places you definitely should visit when travelling to Oslo.

The Karl Johans Gate is the main street of Oslo and also the heart of the center. If you are going by train from the airport to the city center of Oslo, you will arrive at the central station, which is located just in front of the Karl Johans Gate. From here you can easily walk into the street. It’s a very long street with many (international) shops, restaurants and cafés with terraces. If you walk to the very end of the main street, you will come across the Royal Palace and its beautiful gardens.

If you’re looking for a good accommodation with the perfect location during your stay in Oslo, definitely chose a hotel or appartment which is located close to the Karl Johans Gate. The first two nights in Oslo, I stayed at City Box. This hotel is located just a street further from the Karl Johans Gate and also gives an excellent price-quality ratio.
