Please Suggest Sunday Activities and Restaurants in April

Hello,

We are visiting Oslo for four days in April. I heard that most places are closed on Sunday; please suggest activities and restaurants that are available/open on Sunday.

Can we hike or bike in April or will it be too cold for outdoor activities?

Thank you!

All restaurants are open on Sundays, so your choice is unlimited. Cinemas etc. are also open. April can be nice and sunny, so probably good for biking. This year there was still some snow in Oslo in April, but that is not common

Unless you plan to go shopping, most other activities will be available on a Sunday.

Thanks for your prompt and helpful response.

Since we have limited time, which of these two places would you recommend for casual hikers (6 miles total for 1 day's visit) in April:

Oslomarka or Nordmarka

Nordmarka is part of Oslomarka. The easiest access is by metro to Frognerseter then walk to Sognsvann where you can take metro again. However in April quite likely to be remaining snow and slush in parts and otherwise wet and muddy.

Would this visit be in Easter? Note that Thursday, Friday and Monday are public holidays with shops shut. Then it is likely that some restaurants will be closed. Tourist attractions open, but transport will normally run to Sunday timetablrs.

Thanks for the clarification about Nordmarka and Oslomarka. We won't be in Oslo during Easter week. May I please ask for suggestions on outdoor places where we can walk that are paved/ not muddy in April? Thanks again.

There is an asphalt track around Sognsvann.

You can walk down Akerselva from Maridalsvann - that is gravel or paved all the way. Take bus 54 to Stillatorget and you can join the path next to the bus stop.

Take the islands ferry and explore Hovedøya.
