Traveling with children in an unfamiliar city is a daily challenge. Entertainment alternatives are often commercial and/or expensive and often not much fun for the parents themselves.

Just outside downtown Oslo is a quaint farm/petting zoo oasis where kids can interact with farm animals, and learn about farming and ecology – all year round. The farm is located two minutes from Ensjø T-bane station. 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.

The entrance is free. You can interact with rabbits, chickens, ducks, turkeys, pigs, horses, a mule, sheep, goats, and even neighborhood Norwegians. The farm is small yet spacious and provides a great environment for children to explore in natural surroundings – and you can relax while they wander about.

A key aspect of the farm is its focus on ecology. The food kiosk offers waffles, coffee, and a few other drinks – all of which are produced by ecological means. It’s a great place for young kids to roam free and explore and can provide parents with a little time to relax.

They do close for longer periods once in a while (for example, during July) or have reduced opening times (August), so please check their opening times on their website (in Norwegian).
