Day 3: Oslo
CITY OF THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE
The Norwegian city of Oslo is Europe’s fastest growing capital city, with over 661,000 inhabitants and is quite different from many other European cities. It combines captivating modern landmarks and a stylish silhouette with a number of impressive buildings in the city’s historical districts of St. Hanshaugen and Frogner. A recent addition to Oslo is the Nobel Peace Center, from which the Nobel Peace Prize is presented each December.
Climate Protection Best Practice
Norway is a pioneer in electromobility. Electric cars already account for a quarter of all new registrations. By 2025, no vehicles with diesel and gas engines are to be registered in Oslo. As part of a city tour, we will visit the showcase projects on Norwegian climate protection and be inspired by them.
The Scream – everything about Edvard Munch
After a short bus ride to the National Museum of Oslo, we recommend a visit to the art exhibition. Just a quick drive away, at the Munch Museum the artist’s works can be admired in the art museum about the life and work of one of Norway’s most famous artists, Edvard Munch.
The Vikings and the History of Norway
After a bus ride to the Vigeland Sculpture Park and a short walk, the ride will continue to the new Holmenkollen Ski Jump. A short photo stop at Holmenkollen is a good option here. We will continue by bus to the Bygdøy Peninsula, visit the Viking Ship Museum and continue to the Historical Museum where we will have the opportunity to visit the exhibition and learn more about the Vikings and the history of Norway.
