The capital of Norway offers an exciting juxtaposition of old and modern, vitality, culture and nature as far as the eye can see. Located on the south coast of the country on the Indre Oslofjord, the city is surrounded by water, mountains and forests. With its numerous green spaces, it is one of the greenest capitals in Europe. At the same time, the city is known for a lively, colourful, diverse cultural scene, Nordic history, museums and sights. Some of the must-see things in Oslo include the Norwegian Maritime Museum, the Viking Ship Museum (Viking Ship House), the striking Akershus Fortress, the Vigeland sculpture park with more than 200 impressive or thought-provoking sculptures, the Holmenkollbakken ski jump (included panoramic view over the fjord) and the Royal Castle (including the daily changing of the guard).
Oslo provides the perfect base from which to discover Norway, regardless of whether your thing is fjord landscapes, mountains, national parks or cities like Trondheim or Bergen. So many round trips can be planned from Oslo. Information on this and much more under https://www.norwegen-entdecken.info/
