Restaurant

“Highclass yet casual restaurant with a top view over Oslo city, located by the entrance of a forest if you would like to take a walk in our beautiful Norwegian woods. At the other end of the forest (15 minutes) its a popular farm for visits with all kind of animals and horseriding. ”

Opera House
“The Famous Opera House, another wonderful must-see tourist attraction in Oslo. Located downtown, it's only a short walk away. Built almost entirely by massive Italian white marble, it's beautiful on both inside and outside. The building's design allows people to walk straight up on the roof, which I can highly recommend for a fantastic view of the downtown city and of the Oslo Fjord stretching all the way to the horizon :) A lovely place for a memorable photo ! ”
