    Hands down the best experience I had in Oslo was spending an afternoon at the Vigelands Sculpture Park. I can't recall ever being moved so much by an art installation. I wrote a blog post about it which you can see here, it's a must see ! - http://journals.worldnomads.com/kipnomad/story/6718/Norway/Put-your-hands-up-Put-your-hands-up-for-Oslo over 7 years ago

    Vigelands park is a good bet, also depending on the date you are going there, take one of the public transportation boats out to Bygdøy (they are small and yellow and leaves from in front of the city hall). The new opera is fairly close to the boats (and very close to Oslo train station) and something to include if you like architecture. There is good hiking in Nordmarka which has well defined routes and well suited for day trips (access by metro/subway). over 7 years ago

    Rent a bike (Google rent a bike Oslo) and take a trip in Nordmarka. Bike Maps at DNT.no and / or skiforeningen.no. Use visitnorway.com for information on what to do around the country. about 7 years ago

    My family and I did oslo for 4 days during thanksgiving. I strongly suggest that you take the 20 minute express train to the city center and stay in the double tree hotel which is about three blocks away from the train station and in the middle of everything. It has to be one of the best hotels in Europe. Ensure that you go and visit the Viking ship museum which is a sigh within itself to see. That should really be your major attraction. Then ensure that you go to the Nobel peace center which is awesomeness at another level. About 100 meters away is the mall with good deals and my wife loved it. I forgot, buy the Oslo pass to get unlimited transportation around town, besides it gives you a 20% discount at tgi Fridays that will definitely come in handy. One appetizer, two dinners, and four drinks cost me $213 after the discount. Norway is Expensive! Try go to see their parliament buildings and and go and see their museums. Everything is really within waking distance and the Oslo pass will let you into most things at no additional expense. The pass is more of a guide, pass and discount card. Follow it and you will have a good time. about 7 years ago
