The building that houses the restaurant Stortorvets Gjæstgiveri is a Norwegian Cultural Heritage Site.The square became an important hub for public transportation with the introduction of the tramway.

  • If you need quality flowers or plants then you can't beat this place. There's not much here. Sometimes the street food trucks are placed there. Quality food on the go.  more »
  • The flower market on the central square in Oslo. A cozy place. You can sit and admire the Town Hall. And the breakdown of colors make this place even more beautiful in the summer.

  • Flowery islet among busy old town. Around noisy trams, but here in the shadow of the monument lie the flower stalls. Near the Cathedral.

  • So much going on here. Traditional markets, check the Web for info
  • Just a plaza. Not too fancy
  • Full of life and lots of flowers in the summer. You can almost disappear between all the plants where. Cold, dead and boring in the winter
