Description

A ride on tram number 12 is a great way to go sightseeing on your own in Oslo. The tram stops near popular attractions such as Vigeland Sculpture Park, Aker Brygge, City Hall, Christiania Torv and Akershus Fortress.

Tram number 12 runs between Majorstuen in Oslo west and Disen in Oslo north, and the contrasts are many on the journey through some of Oslo's most exciting areas.

The tram passes through the elegant Frogner and Vika neighbourhoods, and continues across City Hall Square by the harbour* on its way to the historic Kvadraturen area. It then passes Karl Johans gate on the way to the buzz of trendy Grünerløkka. The tram also passes through the Torshov neighbourhood before coming to a stop at Disen.

A round trip takes just over an hour, but of course you can take your time and hop on and off the tram wherever you want. There will always be another one along a few minutes later.

All you need to ride on tram 12 is a regular public transport ticket, which can be purchased with the Ruter ticket app or at Oslo Tourist Information, newsagents, certain shops, Ruter's ticket machines, Ruter's customer service centre at Jernbanetorget, bus terminals and at ruter.no.
