Our Europe trip – City 4: Oslo!

Ingens Gate Oslo

Last week, we started a 2 month Interrail train trip to meet Spotters in 26 cities in Europe. The 4th city we visited (after Hamburg, Copenhagen & Stockholm): Oslo!

We’ve been to Oslo twice before to meet our Spotters, both in November (2010 and 2013). With our frozen limbs still fresh in mind we bought a 24 hour public transport card (NOK 90). This time we only took a tram once. This city was made for walking, and that’s what we did…

Oslo waterfall

One of the things that makes Oslo unique, is its many parks and beautiful nature within the city borders. Do you know another city with a waterfall within the city borders? (yes, Munich… but it’s way less impressive!)

Sushi at House of Sushi Oslo

Sushi is reasonably priced in fish city Oslo, and our Spotters wrote about great Oslo sushi spots. We opted for the most affordable one: House of Sushi. Great freshly made sushi & sashimi, served at exactly the right temperature (very important!).

Craft beers at Crow Bryggeri

Great craft beers at Crow Bryggeri Oslo

Oslo has experienced a real craft beer (and coffee!) revolution since we last visited in 2013. Our Spotters Glenn (who calls himself a beer nerd) & Emily are connoisseurs, and have some great recommendations. Our favorite was Crow Bryggeri (aka Crow bar) with an impressive 21 beers on tap, most brewed in-house!

Enjoying the Oslo sun

On Tuesday night we met our Spotters (or 3 of them – unfortunately Glenn & Elin were both traveling). It was a fun night, starting out at a bar in the Vulkan area and ending with a series of free concert at the cool Blå.

Oslo Spotters meeting: Sanne & Andrea

Although we saw a lot 36 hours didn’t do Oslo justice. We hope to be back soon to this lovely city, and explore some more of the beautiful nature a bit further from the city center.
