Oslo Travel Guide

by our Norway expert Conrad Freethy
 
Conrad FreethyKnown as Christiania until 1925, this seafaring city showcases the Norwegian appetite for exploration and adventure. Displayed on the Bygdøy Peninsula are three magnificent Viking longboats, the fragile balsawood Kon-Tiki in which explorer Thor Heyerdahl linked Peru to Polynesia, and Roald Amundsen’s schooner, Fram, used on the 1912 expedition to race Scott to the South Pole. In the heart of Oslo itself, works by prolific artist Edvard Munch are headed by The Scream, Frogner Park is dotted with towering bronze figures entwined like spaghetti, the work of Gustav Vigeland. Other eye-openers include a lively dining scene, headed by Michelin-starred chefs, Akker Brygge’s pierside eateries, and the lively clubs and trendy bars of Grünerløkka.
