Hip shopping district in Northeastern part of Oslo. We took our teenagers and they loved the vintage chic stores. The neighborhood was quaint and then we had a fabulous meal at the MATHALLEN food hall.
This is the top trendy urban destination in Oslo.

Yes, for the next 5 years it’s worth a visit. Maybe more.
There is some kind of bohemian feeling you get here. But some parts are overrated.
A paradise for students and those who not follow the «mainstream».
But actually a bit more «hype» than...More

From the Gardermoen airport the the quickest way into central Oslo is the airport express train. It leaves every 15 minutes, costs NOK 170 one way (yes expensive!) but takes just 23 minutes into the Central Station... More
From the Gardermoen airport the the quickest way into central Oslo is the airport express train. It leaves every 15 minutes, costs NOK 170 one way (yes expensive!) but takes just 23 minutes into the Central Station.
From the Central Station you can take tram line no. 12, that says Kjelsås on the front, heading north. You can get off at Birkelunden stop and walk down through all the area, exploring the other squares and side streets. Be sure to buy a ticket in advance before getting on the tram - the best thing to is buy a day pass, then you can travel on all trams, busses and the subway for 24 hours.
If you want to go to the Vigeland sculpture park from Grunerløkka the quickest way to get there is this: Get back on the 12 tram going to Kjelsås, as the driver to tell you the stop called Torshov. Get off here, cross the street to the 7-11 store on the right hand corner of the crossroads. Here you can find the bus stop for bus 20 to Skøyen. This bus drives then drives through a few nice areas of Oslo directly to the Vigeland sculpture park and stops outside the main entrance gates.
Be sure to scan/validate your day ticket card when getting on to the tram or bus, this is the same as the Oyster card system used in London :-) Fines for travelling without a valid ticket are NOK 900,- so a day card is a good investment, just be sure to validate it! :-)
