Oslo Cruises

The stunning surroundings of Oslo are one of the main reasons why the Norwegian capital well worth a visit for anyone visiting Northern Europe and the Baltics as part of their cruise holiday.

Although not as popular as the likes of Copenhagen and Helsinki, Oslo has plenty to offer those who head ashore to explore the city, which has plenty of history and culture to be explored.

There is a huge range of museums and galleries covering a range of topics, with lovers of the arts in being given the chance to see one of the most famous artworks in the world.

As the name suggests, the Munch Museum is home to works by the famous Norwegian artist Edvard Munch, who donated his works to the city after his death in 1944.

These include arguably his most famous piece of work, The Scream, which dates back to the late 1800s.

The Vigeland Museum in Forgner Park is home to hundreds of sculptures and it well worth a visit, as is the impressive Viking Ship Museum, the National Museum and the Norsk Folkemuseum – a large open-air experience where you can see a huge selection of historical buildings from through the ages.

For something totally different to anything you might experience elsewhere, a visit to Holmenkollen – the ski jump used in the 1952 Olympics – where you can take a tour of the oldest ski museum in the world and visit the tower at the top of the jump.

There is even a simulator so you can experience what the jump would be like for yourself…

The diversity of the city landscape can be seen in architecture from through the ages, from the likes of the Akershus Fortress and the imposing Royal Palace through the ultra-modern Opera House.

Oslo is also home to various parks where you can escape the hustle and bustle of city life and – as in Frogner Park – marvel at various sculptures and statues.

A wide selection of bars and restaurants that serve all manner of different cuisine – from local dishes and international food from around the globe – mean there are plenty of options when it comes to dining, with Oslo having everything from bustling food markets to Michelin-star restaurants.
