  • Can be reached comfortably in subway station of the same name, and from there walk 300 metres until the Lake. The Lake not I found particularly impressive but it is a cute way to make, look many local walking bike and jogging. The tour around the same Lake is short, it looks like an area ideal for picnics if there is good weather (there are also tables). My tour was in the summer. At the entrance there is a small kiosk where you can buy some cookies, ice cream, coffee, etc...

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.
