Planning Your Visit
How much cash do I need in Oslo?
Oslo is a famously pricey city, where a pint of beer can cost 50-60 NOK (8€). However, many of the public museums are free and the Oslo Pass will cover your transport, many attractions, swimming, walking tours and discounts. Take perhaps a third more currency than you would use throughout Central Europe.
When should I visit?
Spring and summer are the best times, weather-wise (try March to August). You will also get to experience the famed nighttime sun and super short nights in August. Try to avoid winter, when Oslo can be dark most of the morning and afternoon, making it difficult for tourists to decide what to do!

What people are saying about Oslo
I can only advice it - so comfortable to use. And to save a lot of money. The only one thing I can’t understand - why we can buy Oslo Pass only at one place and from 10 a.m.? And can’t buy it on weekend?
The guide shared a good overview of Oslo and also Norwegian community. The tour is also manageable for untrained bikers. Time to look around And to take photos
