5. Oslo Opera House
Visit the award-winning Oslo Opera House, a distinctive marble and glass building designed by acclaimed Norwegian architecture firm Snøhetta. If you want to learn more about the architecture and backstage life, book a guided tour (available in English) at the available times (usually in the early afternoon) or arrive in the evening for a show.
6. Karl Johans Gate
Start from Oslo Central Station and walk up Karl Johans gate, Oslo’s main street lined with retail shops, souvenir shops, restaurants & bars. You will pass by several landmarks including 7. Oslo Cathedral (open daily from 10am-4pm except for Fridays (4pm-midnight)), 8. Stortinget/The Parliament building (guided tour hours are different, depending on the season), Spikersuppa skating rink (open to public in the winters), The National Theatre, and 9. The Royal Palace (only open during the summer season)
Dine in the area, there are plenty of restaurants around, we recommend the Michelin starred Oro Restaurant/Bar & Grill where we enjoyed a 6–course menu, wine pairing, good service, and no snobby chefs.
Within walking distance is the Youngstorget, a square with bars, clubs and restaurants. Here you will find awesome beers, cocktails, and even shuffleboards.
We stayed at the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel located in the Oslo city centre, a walking distance from all of the attractions mentioned above. The hotel’s 34 Skybar located on the 34th floor provides a great view of the Oslo city.
