Spikersuppa Skating Rink

For some, winter can’t come soon enough. You can see these people more or less every night in December through March doing their spins, loop jumps and triple Axels on outdoor skating rink on the main street of Karl Johan, between the parliament and the National Theatre.

It’s popularly called “Spikersuppa” (Nail Soup) because it was built by the Oslo nail factory Christiania Spigerverk or sometimes “Narvesen” because the rink itself was given to the city by the kiosk chain Narvesen group 17 years ago (or is it because a Narvesen newsstand is right next it?). Regardless, there are few things that feel better than skating on a frosty winter night to the sound of sharpened blades on ice and Dean Martin songs on the speakers. If you don’t have your own skates, you can rent a pair at Sara’s tent for 45 kroner (about euro 7.80) per hour. Just don’t come at 4 p.m., when the rink closes for an hour of ice grooming. But that’s really no problem, since it gives you an excuse to sit down with a hot cocoa at the Grand Café while you wait.
