  • Charming little town by the Oslo fjord. It is very nice to take a walk to look at the small houses, who is surrounded by well-maintained gardens. Is best to go there a hot summer day. Bus connection is perfectly ok, but requires a little planning.

  • Small village very pleasant, a shuttle of oslo takes you to this port, via the Oslo fjord, very nice even for a return. 1 h 30 from crossing. You can eat on the spot or coffee. A beautiful walk along the sea :)

  • Really bad place. The place where you could touch fishes were full of kids who were mean to animals, and I had to tell them to stop. No one worked there and it was pieces of dead animals in the thank... The tank was bad for the fishes who lived there to, they were try to hide from all the kids who where mean, but didn't have a real place to hide.... It was also fishes who sholdent be in a «thouck area»..... No fishes should be in that kind of tank, if not they have someone to stand gard and only let small groups inside... BUT THIS PLACE HAD A SO HORRIBLE TANK SO I CALLED THE POLICE. AND THEY SHOULD CLOSE THE TANK AND LET THE FISHES BACK TO THE WILD. THEY also had too smal tanks to THE other FISHES...... SAD PLACE. hope THEY stop having touching tanks now.... Specially this PLACE AND worse places...

Where to stay in Oslo

A majority of Oslo's hotels and smaller accommodations cluster along Karl Johans Gate, the city's main drag connecting many of its downtown attractions. If you want something a bit more colorful than the average hotel, consider one of the many bed and breakfasts that have been cropping up in recent years. To escape the crowded streets, but still be walking distance from major sights, stay in the Frogner or Majorstuen neighborhoods near the royal palace. As you can probably guess, lodging is quite expensive in this European capital.
