What You Must Not Miss In Oslo
Amongst the North European towns, Oslo is one of the most appreciated ones, especially from art and architecture lovers. The reason must be found in its constant cultural stimuli the town can offer.
Best Museums in the Norwegian Capital
A trip to Oslo would not be a real one without a visit to the National Gallery. Besides hosting the biggest collection of the world famous Edvard Munch, visitors will also enjoy historical and contemporary works of art, like Van Gogh’s self-portrait and some sketches by Guercino.
Another interesting museum is the Fram, with the polar Ship that was able to sail the most Northern and Southern parts of the world. Built in 1892, the ship that gave its name to the museum is shown in its total integrity, complete with the accessories used by the explorers and pictures of the many discoveries made onboard.
When thinking about Oslo, thoughts immediately go to Vikings and the strength of the people who made this town their own fortress. This is why we also recommend to pay a visit to the Museum of the Viking boats, with ships more than 1100 years old, most of which were found in big funeral monuments along the fiord, as a further proof of the richness of the local history. Inside the museum visitors can also see many Viking warriors’ funeral robes, sledges, fabrics and small chariots.
About tradition, a visit to the Akershus fortress, dating back to 1299, built by Håkon V. is absolutely a must. The most interesting thing about this fortress is its location, on the Akersneset hill, which allowed lookouts to spot enemies approaching the town, making a counter-attack possible and saving the city several times.
Another not-to-be-missed location for tourists from all over the world is the Ski Museum. Set in a characteristic, futuristic structure, visitors will see a collection of pictures of the royal family skying. Ski is the most loved sport in Norway. They will also have the possibility to listen to the story of the winter Olympics. But the most interesting part of the museum is the ski jumper simulator, for those willing to feel the heat of such a flight.
If you do not like museums but want to take a bite to the new Oslo, we recommend a stroll through the street of the avant-garde districts.
Tjuvholmen, a small area on the Oslo fiord, is a quarter with very elaborated spaces showing many works from contemporary art. The new look for this small town is the fruit of an intense 20-year search on the vibrations such city can convey. Alternatively, Vulkan is the place that best embodied the effort to build a totally sustainable living area. Buildings are designed to take the most possible advantage of the leaning sunbeams and the solar panels on the roofs and façades allow to easily generate photovoltaic energy.
With more than one million visitors in one year, Vigeland Park is one of the favourite destinations in town. A featuring characteristics of the park are its me than 200 bronze statues by Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943,) an artist who both gave the town its sculptures and then designed the park. Particularly interesting are the works of Sinnataggen (the angry child) and Livshjulet (the wheel of life).
What To Do In Oslo
Oslo offers plenty of festivals and cultural events. For instance, in September Oslo hosts the Festival of Contemporary Music: many clubs in the centre offer live events where people could enjoy famous or emerging artists from the international scene.
A town like Oslo offers many types of relaxation and fun according to the time of the year. In summer, it is great to take a walk in the woods or join some organised hacking activity. The Oslo Summer Park, for instance, offers bicycle downhill and also has some climbing facilities.
In winter, skying at Oslo Winter Park is a must. With its eighteen ski tracks and its eleven ski lifts, it is one of the most appreciated resorts from skiers of all ages.
The Norwegian Dishes You Shouldn’t Absolutely Miss
Many people say a good way to know a town is to taste the dishes that made its history. Even in Oslo, food lovers can taste unique recipes. Smoked salmon, of course, rules, with horseradish cream, pickled red onions and dill. There are also less famous but equally tasty dishes like halibut (a local middle sized fish) served with onion and chanterelles, something that will surely conquer even the most sceptical traveller.
Unlike what people may think, Oslo does not only offer only fish based dishes: rib with terragon, artichokes, mushrooms and red wine sauce is very inviting. Forthose willing to taste something new, moose, reindeer and deer can be a good alternative. Just bear in mind the taste of such meat can be really strong and it is advisable to taste them with a sour cream based sauce.
A restaurant you shouldn’t miss is Holmenkollen Park Hotel. Here you can taste traditional dishes but also fusion and gourmet cuisine, prepared by the best local chefs in a great setting with a breathtaking view.
Reaching (And Moving Around) Oslo
Like many other North European towns, moving around Oslo is much easier than expected.
Transportations are quick and efficient. Special pass for bus, underground and ferries can be purchased either at ticket machines anywhere in town or by tourist offices.
Oslo has 3 airoports: Oslo-Gardermoe Airport (about 50 km / 31 miles North of the capital), Sandefjord – Torp Airport (110 km / 68.35 miles South-West of Oslo) and Moss – Rygge Airport (66 km / 41 miles South East of town.)
Climate And Best Time To Visit Oslo
Oslo is an extremely charming town throughout the year. The Baltic-continental climate makes it extremely cold in the winter but mild in summer and, for this reason, we recommend to visit Oslo during the warmest months.
For those willing to experience the typical Northern atmosphere of the town and wants to enjoy the snow from a window and the charm of the fireplace, in winter temperature stays below zero from November to March. For this reason, when planning a trip for this time of the year it is best to be prepared with some thermal clothing and furs, also considering the Baltic stream can bring the temperature up to -20 °C ( -4°F).
We suggest to plan your trip to Oslo way in advance and be prepared for a unique experience. Such a peculiar destination requires attention and the will to experience and it will be ready to offer unique sensations and experiences.
