The 13 best things to do in Oslo

Wedged between mountains and sea, Oslo is not only one of Europe’s greenest capitals, but it is also, arguably, the capital of Scandi cool, home to a wide range of things to do. Oslo's once rusty docks have been transformed into architectural wonders, while other lesser-known parts of its industrial past have been revamped, and are now home to lively food halls, bars and art galleries showcasing leading works, including those by Oslo’s celebrated painter, Edvard Munch. With world-class museums, the hip Grünerløkka district, a burgeoning coffee culture and fine restaurants serving both Nordic and international cuisine, there’s something for everyone in this fun, compact and vibrant city in Norway.
