    Oslo Opera House

    The Opera is Oslo's new tourist magnet and an inspiration for many coming opera and concert houses around the globe.

    A rapidly changing city

    If your visits to Oslo are infrequent, you may have noticed that a lot has changed since you were here last. With rapid development, large areas of the city center, such as Bjørvika and Tjuvholmen, are barely recognizable compared to just a decade ago.

    East of the city center, districts such as Grünerløkka, Sagene, Torshov, and Old Oslo, have undergone a huge revitalization. If you have not been to Grünerløkka in a few years, you will probably be surprised by the bustling crowds and the pulse of the district.

    Places to eat in Oslo

    There is an overwhelming amount of restaurants and cafés in Oslo. It might be tricky to find those special places making your taste buds sing of joy. Here are some favorites among the employees in Flyr.

    Brasserie France
    A piece of Paris in the middle of Oslo. At Brasserie France the chefs use the best Norwegian foods such as fresh fish and seafood from the Atlantic and beef from cattle grassing in the Norwegian mountains. The restaurant's dessert trolley is widely famous - a cornucopia of the most delicious home made desserts you will probably taste for a long time. Make sure to reserve your table in advance, and ask for a table on the ground floor, which is where the dessert trolley is located.

    Risbolle Thai Café
    Fairly priced café close to the central station with a wide selection of tasty thai dishes. A popular place among youngsters, but you will also see lots of middle aged friends enjoying authentic thai food in this place. This place do not offer any alcoholic beverage.

    Fjord
    As the name suggest, this is a fish restaurant. In our view, one of the most stylish places in Oslo, with sleek interior design in warm sea colors. As with most other places that serve fish in Oslo and Norway, the quality of the fish is top notch. This restaurant is close to the National theatre.

    Festningen
    On a nice summers day, there is nothing like sitting outside on this restaurant, savoring their excellent seafood platter. The view of the inner Oslo harbor with the city hall, Aker Brygge, the Oslo fjord and all the ships and boats is nothing less than amazing. Festningen is a hidden gem for most visitors, placed on the walls of Akershus fortress, but is very popular among the locals, so make sure to book a table well in advance.

    Beijing Palace
    Dim sum and other Chinese delicacies at a fair price close to the city center. This restaurant has some of the modest prices on wines in all of Oslo, so if Norwegian price level on alcohol scares you off, this is your place.

    Chez Colin
    A very popular French restaurant in a cosy neighborhood 10 minutes walk from the parliament. It is housed in a small wooden house in a quiet street. Food is excellent, and the owners as well as the waiters are famous for their good service and excellent food.

    Lofthus Pizza
    An Oslo based chain of bakeries and pizzerias, famous for their yummy-tasty sourdough bread and avant garde pizzas. How about a pizza with white sauce topped with reindeer filet and pomegranate seeds? Several locations around the city. Our favorite is at St. Olavs square, where you can enjoy your food outside in the summer time, with great views to the city center.

    Eff Eff
    Fancy an oyster, or a dozen? Eff Eff is a pure oyster bar, serving mainly Norwegian, French and American oysters. This place is very popular among hipsters, so expect nature wine, beer from totally unknown breweries and loud music. Eff Eff is located close to Chez Colin, so starting off with some oysters before main courses at Chez Colin is a great way to fill your tummy a bit off the beaten track in Oslo.

    Oslo boasts a number of high class attractions. These are the top 10 sites you should see while visiting Norway's capital, all recommended by Flyr crew.

    • Ekeberg Sculpture park
      A large collection of fine pieces of modern sculptures, collected by mister Christian Ringnes, a true Oslo patriot. The park features a large number of sculptures and art. It is partly placed in a steep hill. Take the tram to Sjømansskolen/Ekeberg Restaurant.
    • Hiking from Sognsvann to Ullevålseter.
      12 kilometer hike in the Nordmarka forests surrounding Oslo. If you want to see how Norwegians spend their leisure time, this is it. Gravel road all the way to Ullevålseter (6 km) where you can but home made pastries, hot and cold drinks.

      Once polluted and infamous for squatters and criminals. Now a beautiful park stretching all the way from Nordmarka to the central station in Oslo. You can take bus 37 to Kjelsås and walk all the way down to the city. The tour will take 1.5 - 2 hours, and there are several cafés on the way.
    • Bygdøy
      A peninsula west of the city center with Oslo's most popular beach called Huk. The royal family has their summer house in Bygdøy, and large parts of the peninsula is still farm land and public park. Bus 30 to the end station Huk at Bygdøy.

      A new part of Oslo, built on docklands. In the summer, this area is packed with young people bathing from the large wooden jetty. Sørenga has several restaurants, bars and cafés, and is a perfect spot for people watching.
    • Ullevål Hageby
      An English village in the middle of Oslo! Ullevål Hageby is very popular among artists and architects. The area was developed in the 1920s and is one of Oslo's most expensive places to live. Damplassen (Dam square) has small cafés, bakeries and doesn't remind of anywhere else in Norway.
    • Slottsparken
      The royal palace garden is a large park surrounding the royal palace in the city center. It is a beautiful place to go for a walk, get some fresh air or see the royal guards.

    • Tryvann winter park
      If you're in for winter sports, this is the place to be. You can rent snowboard or slalom skis and enjoy a day in a magic winter scenery. Metro to Frognerseteren or bus to Wyllerløypa (Wyller ski slopes) from the city center.
    • Vigelandsparken
      Gustav Vigeland's world famous statues of ordinary people is a must on your Oslo trip. The statues do not, as is the case in many other places, show soldiers or memories of war. Vigeland's statues are everyday people in Norway from the 1930s, carved in granite. The large statue Monolitten is a monument of people's strive in daily life. The Vigeland park covers a large area in the west of Oslo, 10 minutes walk from Majorstuen metro station.
    Vigelandsparken

    Vigelandsparken, av mange kalt Frognerparken, er et must på Oslobesøket.
