Sandvika Storsenter

Reviewed By david1949 - Adelaide, Australia

Only 10 minutes from Central Oslo, with free parking for 3 hours or 3 minutes walk from Sandvika railway station, this is the place for those needing a shopping fix.
With nearly 200 shops and plenty of casual eating options, there is plenty of scope for a few hours downtime. There is also a huge Meny supermarket if you want to stock up on some local delicacies.
Lots of clothing, shoes, homewares, hardware, H&M, pretty well all the big Scandanavian names.
It is a sprawling building, over 5 floors and actually crosses over a highway at one point. Just next door is a Thon Hotel and Conference Centre,
Opening hours are Mon - Fri 10am - 9pm, Sat. 10am - 7 pm, closed Sundays.

Jomfrureiser and Charlotte are great trip organizers and I am very happy to have participated in some of their trips. The ladies have great fun with all the activities included in the tours. I 'm planning to participate in their next trip to the Greek Islands.
I made some great friendships in these vacations and got many beautiful memories from around the world.

Veritasparken

Reviewed By geggi77 - Sandvika, Norway

I work in DNV GL and spend time in and around this park all year around. Beautiful views of the Oslofjord, nice Promenade along the fjord. Great place to enjoy your lunch outside on a sunny summer day.

Semsvannet Lake

Reviewed By Cassiel_Agrippa - Asker, Norway

What's not to love about this lake and its' surroundings? It has been declared the Thousand Year Place by the people of Asker. In the summer time people come here to swim, sunbathe, walk around, run around, explore the nature, climb the adjacent Skaugumsåsen hill, visit the Tveiter or Berg farms, see the water fall, or enjoy a coffee and waffles at the Nakuhel cafe. In the winter time you can ski across the lake, or ice bathe in it, or use it as a starting point for dozens of ski routes. And so much more. It's like a park, beach, gym, Promenade, adventure land and cafe rolled into one. It's Semsvannet!

Oslomarka

The term Oslomarka is usually used for all the recreational areas around Oslo. Marka is the administrative name for the part of it that lies inside the city limits and contains hiking trails, recreation facilities, Forests and lakes.

Reviewed By LG-Aude-LG - Oslo, Norway

If you love nature, forest, hills, lakes, and hiking, trail-running and cross-country skiing, the Oslo Marka is your paradise !
Whatever the season, there is always a place to discover, a track to hike or to ski-ride.
In Norway, the nature is so well preserved and easily accessible by public transportation. Well, it seems that nature-loving is the lifestyle of every norsk people !
So lace your shoes and go up there to breathe some pure air and sweat your body out running or skiing. It's relaxing, refreshing, rejuvenating, and it's free !
Then, if you're tired or need a little refreshment, there will always be a hytta on your way, selling cakes, smørbrød and hot chocolate. So... why are you still sitting at home now ?!

Nansen Park

Reviewed By Travellingisagift - Oslo, Norway

The best time to visit this park is during the spring and summer. Great to bring your skates. It has a 4 km walking pathway. It is a great place to bring your kids and just relax. There is a restaurant nearby called Odonata. You could also bring your own food and just make sure to throw your garbage to help maintain the cleanliness of this park. I did not notice any toilets in the park but there is the restaurant you could go. Parking is available. Or take the bus 31 or 30 from Oslo. The buses have Fornebu or Snarøya as the end stations. Those buses are colored red. This park has been nominated in the Rosa Barba European Landscape Award in 2010 in Barcelona.

Musikkflekken Concert Venue

Reviewed By Vegard W

This venue is most of all intimate with a total of less the 500 pax capacity. Nice staff. One drawback, not even nuts in the bar, just drinks. Musikkflekken often have good Norwegian and international artists. One funny thing about the men's room, the paper towels is not by the sink, they are by the urinale ;)

Fornebu S

Reviewed By worldclassinspector - Oslo

This new shopping mall is a well kept secret right outside Oslo. It's more up scale than most and definitely less visited, which is comfortable for the consumer. You will find places to eat, high end shops, groceries, but also H&M, Dressmann and Cubus. The architecture and layout is very nice.
