Oslo is a modern and diverse community, and each of its boroughs brings something different to the table. They can all be reached on foot, by public transport or by bicycle. Oslo is a perfect city for cycling, with a small gap between major hubs and attractions. On the northern shore of the Oslofjord, the capital of Norway and the third largest city in Scandinavia, there is a fashionable and affluent metropolis that has grown rich in shipping and oil. The secret to quality of life, nature is everywhere in Oslo, as the fjord is right in the backyard of the city, and you're never more than a bus ride away from the untamed forest and walking paths along the river and the mountains. Culture in Oslo means coming face to face with Edvard Munch's The Scream and Gustav Vigeland 's explosive sculptures in Frogner Town.
Oslo can be reached by plane via Oslo Airport or by ferry and train. You can, of course, make your way across the city by public transport. However if you want to visit Oslo in a more formal, comfortable and easy way, you need to consider using our charter bus service. Coach Charter Germany

We welcome you to the top ten ideas for your next trip to Oslo:
1. Norvegian national opera and ballet
The Oslo Opera House is located right in the harbour, with an angled, white exterior that appears to rise from the sea. It welcomes its guests to climb its roof and enjoy a panoramic view of Oslo and the fjord all year round. Large-scale street-level windows provide the public with views into rehearsals and workshop events. The interior of the building is mostly wood, and the main hall is shaped like a horseshoe, reminiscent of the classical theaters of the past. The opera is designed by the Norwegian architectural firm Snøhetta and has received several prestigious awards.
2. Viking Ship Museum
Equipped with the University of Oslo Cultural History Center, the Viking Ship Center has jaw-dropping findings from four separate Viking burial sites across the Oslo Fjord. The museum is situated on the Bygdøy Peninsula and shines thanks to the Oseberg Ship. This 9th-century burial ship was excavated in 1904-05 and is as new as it had been covered in watertight and airtight mud for all that time.
3. Oslo summer park
One of the biggest climbing parks in Scandinavia it is just 30 minutes from the city center. Oslo Summer Park is divided into 12 trails of different degrees of difficulty. There are more than 200 features in the park, which also includes more than 1,000 meters of zip lines. The entrance to the climbing park includes all the requisite equipment and preparation for a healthy and exciting day in the treetops. The biggest thrill of the park is possibly Tigerspranget ("The Tiger Leap"), where you'll witness a 13-metre free fall before being slowly lowered to the ground. You’re free to bring your own food to the park's barbecue and picnic areas. You can hire a bus with a driver in our bus company to get there.
4. Frogner Park
Free to enter at any time of year, Frogner Park is in Oslo's homonymous borough and is a delight for installations by the 20th-century sculptor Gustav Vigeland. In total, there are 212 sculptures in bronze and granite from Iddefjord.
5. Botanical garden
Large garden in Tøyen with sample botanical variety and diversity. The majority of the area is planned as an Arboretum, with approximately 1,800 different plants. The garden has a large and varied collection of trees and shrubs planted in a systematic fashion after the plant family. The Scent Garden is arranged as an experience for everyone, but especially the blind, mentally handicapped and wheelchair-bound. You will also find large, woven sculptures by British artist Tom Hare in the park. The Palm House greenhouses from 1868 and the Victoria House from 1876 present exotic plants from other parts of the world. The greenhouses are open daily from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. between 15 March and 30 September, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. the rest of the year.
Your group will spend an unforgettable day at TusenFryd Amusement Park, both young and old. Seek thrilling attractions like SuperSplash, SpaceShot, ThunderCoaster, SpeedMonster and SpinSpider. And why don't you take a dive into the BadeFryd water slide where there's still 25oC in the cold. There's nothing like a dip in the pool between the rides. BadeFryd is open from early June to mid-August.
7. Fram Museum
On the Bygdøy Peninsula, this museum pays tribute to the pioneering polar explorers of the twentieth century, Fridtjof Nansen, Otto Sverdrup and Roald Amundsen. The focus of attention here is the Fram, a wooden ship that was used by all three explorers in both the Arctic and the Antarctic expeditions between 1893 and 1912, traveling farther north and south than any other vessel in history. Both unusually large and shallow, the Fram had an ingenious design that allowed it to float on top of the ice sheets. On the Fram you can see how humans and their dogs struggled to survive.
8. Norwegian Folk Museum
In the same collection of world-class museums on the Bygdøy Peninsula, the Norwegian Folk Museum is an open-air attraction that has welcomed visitors for more than 115 years. The center of the collection was founded by King Oscar II in the early 1880s and its showpiece is the Gol Stave Church, which was built in the middle of the 12th century and moved here in 1884. This magnificent monument is one of the 155 historic buildings in the museum, outlining the diversity of wooden architecture around the country.
Housed inside one of the oldest brick buildings in downtown Oslo, this 'hidden' talkeasy bar serves avant-garde cocktails made from spirits distilled on site, featuring extravagant ingredients such as Norwegian brown cheese, ginseng and horseradish. Find out for yourself why this one of the top 20 bars in the world has been called. It also has a beer bar, an outdoor kitchen and a greenhouse with plants and herbs used in food and beverages.
10. Kon-Tiki Museum
All about the adventures of 20th-century anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl, the Kon-Tiki Museum is named after the balsa wood raft which Heyerdahl sailed from Peru to Polynesia in 1947. His purpose on this perilous journey was to prove that the Polynesians had emigrated from South America to the Central and South Pacific. In another daring expedition, Heyerdahl sailed from Morocco to Barbados on the papyrus reed ship Ra II to prove that the Ancient Egyptians could have crossed the Atlantic. You'll see these two vessels, as well as the replica of the Tigris, which he sailed from Iraq to Pakistan.
