Oslo: 2 Guided City Walking Tours
Discover Oslo’s history on our day and evening tours. Enjoy a flexible experience with our pass, which is valid for three days. Start your tours at University Aula and explore the city at your own pace with the free Vox City app included in your ticket.
Oslo has a long and impressive nautical history that led it to become one of Europe’s leading centres of trade. While the Vikings are long gone, the city is rooted in its maritime heritage to this day. With the help of our Oslo city guides, you’ll get an unparalleled insight into what makes this Scandinavian city stand out.
On our day tour, we circle Sentrum, Oslo's diverse city center positioned on the Oslofjord, to show you its best landmarks, museums, restaurants, and bars. Starting at the University of Oslo, we will admire the 19th-century architecture of the city center. We will see Norwegian Parliament, the Grand Hotel, the shopping area, and other features on the main street Karl Johan. You will learn how Oslo earned its nickname 'Tiger City' and start passing Havnepromenade, where the symbolic Norwegian Opera House stands out like a pearl in the ocean. Next, we walk towards Christiania, the historical center of Oslo's 17th-century; you will know why the Norwegian capital has changed its name for 300 years. The tour ends not far from City Hall, which holds the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony every December. You'll need to join our tour to find out all about those!
Afterward, join our evening tour to get the lowdown on Oslo's hippest hang-outs and compelling contemporary art scene in the trendy Aker Brygge neighborhood. We stroll along the regenerated waterfront filled with chatter from popular restaurant patios and bars to reach Tjuvholmen. This ultra-modern artificial island is home to the Astrup Fearnley Museum and the Tjuvholmen Sculpture Park, which between them, behold some of the most inspiring contemporary art in Scandinavia. Providing the perfect juxtaposition to this modern enclave, we spend the second half of the tour seeing more of Oslo's historical highlights.
After exploring many of the city's landmarks with your guide, use the free Vox City app (included in your ticket) to discover more of Oslo and feel it here like a local.
