I am not sure, why this place is liked by anyone - it is just dirty trashy place. Walls are painted by ugly graffiti, in general, it is not Norway, but some completely other terrible junk.

Hip shopping district in Northeastern part of Oslo. We took our teenagers and they loved the vintage chic stores. The neighborhood was quaint and then we had a fabulous meal at the MATHALLEN food hall.

The bnb we stayed in was close to Grunerlokka so we were able to walk through several times. We enjoyed dinner there one evening. Looks like an old neighborhood that is now becoming trendy.

Yes, for the next 5 years it’s worth a visit. Maybe more. There is some kind of bohemian feeling you get here. But some parts are overrated. A paradise for students and those who not follow the «mainstream». But actually a bit more «hype» than...More

Hello, From the Gardermoen airport the the quickest way into central Oslo is the airport express train. It leaves every 15 minutes, costs NOK 170 one way (yes expensive!) but takes just 23 minutes into the Central Station... More
