It can be challenging to find places your children will enjoy when travelling in a new city. The alternatives are often commercial and/or expensive while providing little entertainment value for the parents.
Where else so close to downtown Oslo can you find a place for kids to interact with farm animals and learn about farming and ecology?
The farm is located two minutes off Ensjø station, only one station past Tøyen where countless tourists travel each day to visit the Munch Museum. From downtown, exit the metro train and walk back towards and under the pedestrian bridge. Follow the road towards the left through the tunnel and the farm is immediately to the left.
Entrance is free. You can interact with rabbits, chickens, ducks, turkeys, pigs, horses, a mule, sheep, goats and even the farmhouse cat roaming the premises. The farm is small yet spacious and provides a great environment for children to explore in natural surroundings – while you relax in the sun.
A vital aspect of the farm is its ecological foundation. The food kiosk offers waffles, coffee and a few other drinks – all of which are produced by ecological means.
It’s a great place young kids are sure to enjoy.
