Want to travel to a city without crowds and with one foot in the fjord and one in the forest? To enjoy car-free streets, eco-friendly gourmet restaurants, and lots of inspiring fun? Welcome to Oslo, this year’s European Green Capital.
Published: 29 January 2019
If you want the world to become a better place to live, you should definitely come to Oslo for inspiration and fun this year. A large number of activities and events for young and old, families and professionals, are already part of the official programme, which gets updated weekly.
Start your day with a morning swim – or a breakfast seminar, if you’re so inclined. Then, you can join a guided tour on foot or by bike, have lunch at a garden rooftop, visit a clothes swap market, and end up drinking botanical cocktails at a (literally) green bar in the evening.
Catch a ferry or rent a kayak and go island hopping, or just kick back and relax in one of the city’s green parks. If you’re here for the culture and have been to all the important museums, you can jump on one of the thousands of city bikes that are placed around the city and go see outdoor art installations and street art. When you get hungry, you’ll be happy to discover that lots of really good cafes and restaurants – some with Michelin stars – offer green menus with locally grown food, organic vegetables, and meat-free meals.
