Top 5 places to hunt Pokémon in Oslo

Below each tip you will find recommendations on things to see and do in the area.

1. Vigeland sculpture park

One of Norway’s most visited attractions, with more than one million visitors every year, is also one of Oslo’s most popular meeting places for Pokémon Go players.

The sculpture park is full of rare Pokémon that can be difficult to find other places. Look out for Squirtle!

2. Nydalen and Akerselva river

Nydalen has been a Pokémon GO hotspot since the game was launched. Here you can expect a lot of rare Pokémon, including the popular Dratini-Pokémon.

If you follow the Akerselva river from Nydalen to Grünerløkka, you will find lots of different Pokémon – and plenty of shops, bars and restaurants.

3. Tjuvholmen and Aker Brygge

This area is packed with PokéStops. At Tjuvholmen there are even two PokéStops placed right next to each other.

Buy an ice cream, find a spot by the ocean front and enjoy the scenic surroundings while you are playing.

4. Karl Johan

At the top of Karl Johans gate, Oslo’s main shopping street, you will find the Royal castle where several PokéGyms are located.

At the bottom of the street, by Oslo Central Station, there are also many Pokégyms to look out for.

5. Nesoddtangen

Seen as of the best places to hunt Pokémon in Norway. Everybody wants Dragonite, Snorlax and Lapras – and you can expect to find all of them here.

Nesoddtangen is located on the Nesodden peninsula, just a short boat trip from Aker Brygge.
