Grand Hotel

Grand Hotel When it comes to hotels in Oslo, the Grand Hotel is an institution in its own right. It stands proud directly in the heart of the city’s main street Karl Johan. Henrik Ibsen came here to sit on the shady veranda and enjoy his highballs at the end of the 19th Century. This is where Barack Obama...

A Peaceful Day in Oslo

Start at the Myren’s training centre in the Sandaker neighbourhood for a round of golf. Okay, maybe not golf as you know it, but the five hyper- advanced simulators are ideal for those who want to release some stress and frustration without breaking the bank to get a green card (not to mention...

Diners Club

Diners Club Having a Diners club card gives you free access to 100 airport lounges around the world as part of your annual membership fee, which in norway, for example, is 695 kroner (about euro 88). As a member, you can also bring a guest for a fee that varies depending on the lounge. Children get in free. “...

National Autumn Exhibition (Statens Høstutstilling)

If Norwegian contemporary art has its own special showcase and coronation ceremony, it would be the annual National Autumn Exhibition (Statens Høstutstilling) at the venerable Artists’ House in Oslo. This year’s four-week celebration of Norwegian contemporary art is the 124th to be organized,...

Bohemen SportsPub

Bohemen There comes a time, at some point in mid-august, that something starts happening in our bodies, as if a veil was drawn aside and all our senses are heightened. it’s partly the autumn, of course, with the feeling of turning a new page, and nature’s own fireworks of colour. But it´s just as much...

Pur Norsk

Pur Norsk When Marianne Lien and her boyfriend Lasse Altern Halvorsen opened the boutique Pur Norsk, which means Pure Norwegian, in the Adamstuen area nearly five years ago, reactions weren’t exactly “Cool!” or “Wow, that’s great!” The response was more along the lines of “What on earth are you going to put...

Trattoria Popolare

Trattoria Popolare There has never been a lack of Italian restaurants in Oslo. What has been missing however, are Italian restaurants that challenge their patrons to try some- thing other than pizza and spaghetti carbonara and make it affordable. It’s not quite right to call Trattoria Popolare a restaurant, since...

The Kon-Tiki Museum

Museum Only norway’s national shrine, oslo’s holmenkollen ski Jump, draws more tourists, and that’s a much bigger area. Yes, you will have to wait in line. And, sure, it’s a bit out of the way, even if there are several other museums you can do in the same go. there is really no good reason not to visit...

Frognerbadet

Frognerbadet The large grass lawns, the big shade trees and the view of the Vigeland sculpture park all contribute to – in the minds of many - making Frognerbadet the Nordic region’s most beautiful outdoor pool. If you are too young to enjoy swimming laps, there are alternatives: water slides and a diving pool...

Fiskeriet fish shop and restaurant

Fiskeriet “Everything is cut and fileted in the shop, so the customers don’t have to buy fish that already spent a couple days on ice in western Norway,” says Brandstorp. As if to emphasize his point, a 100-kilogram (220 pound) porbeagle shark is delivered directly from the supplier, as one of two or three...

Sukkerbiten

Sukkerbiten Nightlife Getting tickets to the opera in oslo, unfortunately, takes more planning than most people realize. Unless you booked months in advance, you can pretty much forget it. We don’t know if that is why runar eggesvik the man behind much of oslo’s nightlife for the past decade - said "yes" when a...

Nordic Choice Hotels

Nordic Choice Hotels At first, it is hard to understand why the promotional video of the new Comfort Hotel Square in Stavanger, Norway shows pictures of Times Square in New York, apart from a slight similarity in names. But then it is revealed that the hotel offers “exciting art from New York.” And …well …that’s still...
