Oslo is undoubtedly one of the fastest-growing cities in Europe. The city’s exceptional infrastructure facilities, state-of-the-art transport system, and flourishing industries have contributed immensely to what it is today. But this change didn’t happen overnight – it was the result of industrialisation and massive expansion of the city. You’ll learn all about this when you book this educative sightseeing tour by Oslo Guidebureau.
On a typical Monday evening, the participants meet the guide at the meeting point, which is generally by the tiger sculpture in Østbanehallen. After everyone has arrived, you will embark on this educational walking tour. Stroll across Oslo’s suburbs and industrial areas, learning how the city was modernized over the years. Your guide will tell you about some of the major changes that have taken place in the city in the recent past.
You will walk over the new pedestrian bridge at Oslo Central Station called 'the Acrobat' before entering Bjørvika. Then, you will cross Bispevika and walk past the new Munch Museum. The last destination on the itinerary would be the Deichman, Oslo’s new library, located next to the Opera House.
At some places, you will see how there’s a perfect mix of old and new buildings, showcasing how the Norwegian capital has developed into an industrial hub over the years. While listening intently to your guide, don’t forget to marvel at the different architectural styles – from traditional to contemporary, you’ll see it all. There will be plenty of opportunities for clicking pictures along the way.
