    I must say I wasn't sure about all those naked statues but my tour guide explained why they were naked. The park has Vigeland's statues of people of every age going through life. It is the expressions on their faces that matter. The commentary made all the difference. Read up on it before going and enjoy. It can be very emotional.

    I took the Oslo Fjord boat tour that takes 2 hours and I think it is a nice activity for a sunny day. The weather was wonderful. The boat passes by many islands. It is nothing incredible but the atmosphere is nice and it is cool to observe the little summer houses. The ticket cost me 330 krona because I had the discount from the Oslo pass. You can take the boat from the pier near the city hall. They have departures at 10 30, 13 oclock and some other times. Check online. And take jacket and scarf with you because it is windy.

    Visited this refreshing place during my latest trip to Oslo and I was pleasantly surprised by the place. Nice gravel path around the lake with multiple stops and plenty of opportunities to take photographs of birds and other wildlife. I saw, and photographed, at least one treecreeper, many starlings and blackbirds and couple of large geese too. Being an amateur photographer and enjoying walks and treks in wild, having this kind of place so near and so easily accessed from city centre is a big plus.

    Nice place, even in early spring with snow and ice, I can only imagine what this place looks like when it's warmer and everything is fresh green.

    What a beautiful part of Oslo. Took a tiny ferry across to the penisula from outside City Hall but you could also come by bus or car. Many museums (Folk, Kon Tiki, Maritime, Fram) and other attractions which could absorb a whole day but it's also fascinating wondering around seeing all the local houses (with their boats parked outside) and enjoying the scenery. Several small cafes and restaurants which are lovely and a small supermarket to buy picnic stuff with plenty of places to sit down and enjoy. Plan for a whole day visit if you can. Watch the timing for the final ferry back but there are also buses. A really good place to come with kids. Many of the attractions are included in the Oslo City Pass so worth investing in that.

    I was raised in Oslo and have lived there many years. When I go back to visit my country now, I can't skip a tour or five.... on ski or foot at Frognerseteren....

    We enjoyed a morning walk through the park and saw some interesting art from different artists. Lovely views of the Oslo Fjord too!

    Been going here since I was a child, great fun. Remember to wear a helmet, it can get really fast down the slopes.

    Came to see the ruins interesting in the snow easy walk to the different vantage points to view the nearby area even in winter worth the trip. Enjoyed looking at the old cannons protecting the bays and entrance to the Harbour.

    This was THE surprise of our visit. The Aversleva river is the green veign into Oslo. We started taking tramline 17 to Kjelsås en drove al the way to the last station. From there we went 500 meters to the Maridalsvannet. Rom the lake the river runs down an here is a broadpathe on both sides of the river.
    We did this in June with a temperature of 26 degrees C. Birds, nature, hardbodied mums and dads jogging op the mountain with their kids in the stroller. Pople sunbathing everywhere, swimming.
    Ore downstream the first. Terrasses are found, Old industrial architecture, waterfalls, Grønnerlokka.
    If you walk the river, start early. It’s 12 kilometers so expect atleast four hours to complete it.
    But it’s really worth it

    It's great to have such a huge and fantastic hiking area just outside the city center with good public transportation. Unfortunately, I had to live here for 18 years before I found out, thanks to closed activities due to Covid-19.

    Pleasant place to wander for a break in the centre of town or to eat a packed lunch on a nice day. Well-tended park!

    I have been here twice but both now in the winter time so this review won't reflect well for people who expect a summer review.
    The view from the shore here is wonderful but that's about it. Their facilities are up to date like a nice and clean basketball court for example but that's about it. I would recommend this place for someone that wants to escape the city life.

    The newly-built Sørenga district is located along Oslo's long Havnepromenaden. It offers cafes, restaurants, and nice outdoor areas along the water's edge.

    Sørenga Sjøbad is open to the public all year round. In winter you can do ice swimming and after that warm up in a sauna.

    On hot summer days, I can imagine the place being crowded with people. It has so nice views.

    The large sea bath has an open pool, beach, children's pool, and diving tower.

    Had this on our "to do" list because we heard it was a famous "Instagram" street...and when travelling with a 20 year old...that's what you do! :-) Glad we made the trek. It was kind of difficult to find, but well worth it. Beautiful little street with great views and photo ops. 1 of my to 10 pictures from my visit to Norway!
