Things to do in Oslo
Oslo is Norway’s biggest and capital city. Surrounded by hills, mountains, forests, islands, and hundreds of lakes, it’s one of the greenest and most beautiful cities in the world. Not only that, but Oslo is also home to world-class museums, fascinating cultures, architecture, a thriving cafe and bar culture, and a whole lot more.
Discover the captivating manmade structures of the city by wandering around with your camera. Visit the impressive Royal Palace of the city and go enjoy a tour. Check out the modern architecture of Oslo Opera House, and if you visit during summer, you can even climb the building’s marble slopes for a unique view of the city.
Stop by Oslo Cathedral and visit Basarhallene or The Bazaar Halls for shopping and a bite to eat in the cafes or restaurants.

Don’t forget to go inside for displays of historical artefacts, various artworks, and a chance to see where they present the Nobel Peace Prize every year.
Get ready to find your new profile photo when you take pictures at Stortinget, Vigeland Sculpture Park, and Akershus Castle. You can even get excellent views of the Oslo Fjord and surrounding areas at the castle.
Don’t miss the incredible museums of Oslo. Spend hours visiting the city’s best, such as Henrik Ibsen Museum, Munch Museum, and Oslo Museum. Do you know the world-famous painting of The Scream? You can find that and many other masterpieces at the National Gallery.
