Markveien Shopping Walk (Self Guided), Oslo

If you want to find something special and truly unique, whether its clothing, furniture or art, go to Markveien, one of the central streets of the Grunerlokka district. This attractive narrow street is well known for its vintage shops and boutiques selling vintage and unique products, including jewelry, clothes, ceramics and paintings. There are also several galleries and souvenir shops. Visiting some of the funky stores is truly a joy, because you never know exactly what you might find lying within. They sell anything and everything. Don't rush your shopping trip, because there is every chance of finding a gem tucked away in nooks and crannies.

Even if shopping is the very last thing on your mind, a visit to the area should be a must-do on your Oslo itinerary for its exciting and eclectic character if nothing else. Markveien is not just about the shops, because there are also restaurants and cafés serving Norwegian and some international cuisines such as tapas. They are as individual as some of the shops. The further you walk up the road, the more residential the buildings become. But don't turn around and walk back, because there are still shops up here where you may find some unique item or other.
