Oslo Ferry Port
Found on the south east coast of Norway, Oslo ferry port serves almost seven million travellers every year. The port is situated in a stunning fjord and connects the Norwegian capital to both Denmark and Germany.
What is there to do in Oslo?
Thousands of people have relocated to Oslo, and after visiting, it’s easy to see why. Stunning architecture, a bustling waterfront area and an array of fascinating museums make Norway’s capital one of the fastest growing cities in the world. The culture and amenities are expected of a capital city, but it’s Oslo’s surrounding nature that separates it from other major capitals; endless countryside engulfs the city centre and lusciously green parks provide the ideal setting for a leisurely stroll in the afternoon sun. Vigelandsparken is the standout park in terms of aesthetics, attracting thousands of visitors per day.
As well as the beauty and adventure belonging to the city, Oslo’s main drawing point is the proximity of its attractions. The city centre is easily walkable in a day or two, which is typically the desirable option considering the impressive infrastructure and refreshingly clean environment. There are walking and bike tours on offer, showcasing the most popular and highly regarded sights – the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet House is a particular highlight. If witnessing the main attractions doesn’t sound too appealing, there are also taste tours which take visitors around the most highly rated restaurants and food chains in the city.
How do visitors get around Oslo?
There is a comprehensive public transport system consisting of buses, trams, trains and the metro so the city is very easy to navigate around. The two main hubs for public transport are Oslo Central Station and Nationaltheateret, the latter being the primary underground connection.
