      Can anyone help me locate the exact address of a small square in Oslo?

      by Archway Online Now Dec 17, 2016 at 6:55 AM

      Hi, I am trying to find the exact address of a square in the Damstredet area. It looks like a small square with a shallow pond.  An image of it is on the Visit Norway Website, but I have uploaded it to this post.  

      Many thanks

      First time in Oslo - what area to stay in

      by kathymof Online Now Nov 11, 2016 at 1:10 PM

      Hi. I am planning a one week trip to Oslo and would like your help in choosing an area to stay in. I plan to rent an apartment. I would like for it to be near good transportation and/or to be within walking distance of major tourist destinations/attractions such as museums, historical sites, interesting neighborhoods, architecture, that kind of thing. It appears there is lots to see and do so I am assuming I can keep busy for a week - is this correct?

      I have FI317 08:25 flight from Oslo to Reykjavik. If I take the 22:59 train from Bergen and arrive at 06:25 at Oslo, can I go to the airport to take my flight on time? Flytoget Airport Express Train takes 22 minutes from Oslo S to the airport, the website says.

      How to get to ski jump and Vigeland park.

      by sylv2 Online Now Feb 13, 2016 at 2:51 PM

      Hi, we will be in Oslo for just one day. After researching what we would like to see and considering we don't want to be be in a mad rush we have come up with the following itinerary.
      We arrive late afternoon from Flam the day before so hope to have a wander around the centre of town and harbour in the early evening. If not we will do this the next day.
      We would really love to visit the ski jump for the views and Frogner Park in the morning. I have found transport to get to these places from Oslo but if we visited the ski jump first how would we get to Frogner park from there? Or visa versa. We don't want to do an organised tour as we want to go at our own pace.
      The afternoon we would visit other attractions like the resistance museum, City Hall and maybe a ferry ride to Brygge. We won't visit the outdoor folk museum as we may visit the one in Stockholm. I know the Viking ship museums are quite different but we don't need to see two so will probably visit the Vasa in Stockholm. I have read that the ferry trip to Bygdoyis a pleasant way to way to see Oslo from the water. Is it still worthwhile to wander around Bygdoy even if we not visiting the main attractions?
      We want to enjoy Oslo and not be in a mad rush to fit lots in. Our hotel is near Central Station. We like to wander around and just take it all in.
      Any advice/opinion or help is appreciated.
