Wedged between mountains and sea, Oslo is not only one of Europe’s greenest capitals, but is also arguably the capital of Scandi cool. The city’s once rusty docks have been transformed into architectural wonders, while other lesser-known parts of its industrial past have been revamped, and are now home to lively food halls, bars and art galleries showcasing leading works, including those by Oslo’s celebrated painter, Edvard Munch. With world-class museums, the hip Grünerløkka district, a burgeoning coffee culture and fine restaurants serving both Nordic and international cuisine, there’s something for everyone in this fun, compact and vibrant city.
A boat trip on the Oslo Fjord, strolling through Ekeberg Sculpture Park, a short Tram trip to the Holmenkollen ski jump or simply strolling along the Akerselva River in the city center, you can do a lot in just 4 days. And then there is the coffee of Tim Wendelboe ... :)
