City trip Oslo - experience Norway's capital in a relaxed atmosphere

City trip Oslo

Four days, four girls and four pairs of shoes in hand luggage. Thus, nothing stands in the way of a relaxed city trip to one of the most expensive cities in Europe - only the start is a bit bumpy. My travel report about a city trip to Oslo:

At a glance:

Travel time: 15.07.-18.07.2016

Getting there: Flight with KLM from / to Dusseldorf via Amsterdam for a total of 180 €, only hand luggage

Accommod.: Airbnb

Day 1: Oslo in a roundabout way

image EActually, I should have only needed 4h from Dusseldorf via Amsterdam to Oslo. Actually. Unfortunately my flight with KLM from Düsseldorf is almost 2h late and I miss my connecting flight. On this I would have met my girls. Anyway, I do not let the mood spoil me. Now I have to over Stavanger to Oslo fly and buy me in Duty Free once a bottle of wine for about 8 € (that was the cheapest).

4h later I am at the airport of Oslo and again 1h finally in ours very cool airbnb apartment from Marthe in the north of the city. There I finally meet my three friends from Munich and am really happy! Today we cook comfortably at home and arrive properly. Thanks to sleep mask, we can fall asleep despite the brightness.

Day 2: Shopping, Sights and Skål Oslo City Trip

imageSure, what else. If women are traveling together, of course, it always works first for shopping. And you can really wonderful and extensive in that Grünerløkka in the Thorvald Meyers gate around the corner. The so-called In-Viertel is full of shops, boutiques, cafés and bars. Here Oslo is young and modern. The sun is shining and we continue to drive towards the harbor.

Passing the central station, we walk directly to the opera, A huge building. At first glance it looks a bit out of place, at second glance it is an architectural highlight. It's fun to walk around and up there too. The sea does the rest and we arrive in Oslo.

It continues to Townhouses (from the outside less beautiful, I think) to Aker Brygge Directly at the sea. The wind blows, the sun is shining and we enjoy the harbor scenery around us. We buy a totally overpriced sandwich and a cappuccino and play the perfect tourist. Has to be too. After that we run over that Royal Castle and the Johans gate (a restaurant and shopping mile) back to Central Station. The Touri program is definitely enough for today.

In the evening we make "our" hipster district Grünerløkka unsafe and order us a first beer for about 10 €. But we knew that Oslo is expensive. Two more follow, including bar-hopping: first in the Bar Boca in the 50 style, then into the "Chair“, A stylish cocktail bar and last but not least, the aku tiki bar kept in Hawaii look. However, I have to say that Oslo's nightlife does not have much to offer ...

Day 3: A day at the sea in Oslo

imageToday is rested. I finally have to take advantage of it without the two kids on the road.
With the tram we drive back to Townhouses and look at it from the inside. And behold, it is something to be proud of. After that we want to catch the ferry Bygdøy, better known as Museum Island. Approximately 5 € costs the one-way ticket. The ride is like a little sightseeing tour.

Once there, we are Kulturbanausen this time and let all the museums are on the left (well, we look briefly in the Viking Museum, but buy no ticket) and rather walk through the woods and park Huk beach, We are all excited! We are lucky again with the weather, even if it is very windy.

We sit down in the sand, go into the water with our feet and enjoy our picnic. We'll definitely stay here for 2h because it's so nice definitely one FAVORITE SPOTfrom me! Relaxed we take the bus back to Townhouses and stroll through the small canals with sweet architecture and stylish restaurants on the Aker Brygge, Here we could stay forever, also an absolute must for Oslo! In the end there are Fish & Chips in the Lekter'n right on the water and the short vacation is coming to an end ...

Day 4: Takk Oslo

imageTakk means Thanks in Norwegian. It was a great time! I would like to explore more of Norway, but Oslo was a good start.
Today we walk only for a short time through our beloved district with sweet shops and small cafes and let us drift. Trolls, licorice ice, the sea and the wind are especially memorable. Soon we will be on the way again with the airport bus (about 25 € one way) to the airport. I hope, this time, no flight is delayed. Girls, it was always an honor for me.

    To experience Norway's fjords relaxed, I recommend the post ship, so Hurtigruten. Those who want it more originally, with less comfort, but fewer passengers, are the Vesteralen or the
    even older ship, the MS Lofoten the right choice. The North Cape is an absolute must.
