Norway - Oslo (Chapter)
This is the Oslo chapter from Lonely Planet’s Norway guidebook.
Oslo is fringed with forests, hills and lakes awash in opportunities for hiking, cycling, skiing and boating. Add to this mix a thriving cafe and bar culture, top-notch restaurants, nightlife and a large and visible immigrant community and the result is a thoroughly intoxicating place in which to forget about the fjords for a while.
- sing like a soprano in the new, glacier-white Oslo Opera House, a building that’s set to become Scandinavia’s architectural icon
- scream with delight at seeing The Scream in the National Gallery, and see how today’s artists shape up in the National Museum of Contemporary Art
- restaurants & accommodation
- examine the ships and charts of the Viking Ship, Kon-Tiki and Polership Fram Museums on Bygdøy Peninsula
