Short City Breaks Oslo - Discover Something New Every Day! from Ahmedali099's blog

Oslo is a fairly small city with a rich history and a vast amount of sights and activities - too many for a short city break, in fact! You can easily spend several days in Oslo and yet find that you haven't seen all what it has to offer. And offer it does, for young and old alike!

The city's 1,000 years' history Oslo sightseeing tickets comes to life in its numerous museums and sights. A great place to start is the Akershus Festning Castle, where the high stone walls, cobbled passageways and wrought-iron gateways manage to take you back to medieval times. Who wouldn't want to experience this ancient castle? At every turn, there are amazing photos to be taken, so be sure to bring along your camera.

Prefer something a little more laid-back? We found ourselves transported back more than a thousand years at the Viking Ship Museum, where the old ships and tales of Norse Vikings tell the fascinating story of the region's history. You can almost feel the sea air on your face as you walk among the grand old vessels. Finally, we visited the Norwegian Museum of Science and Technology which the kids especially enjoyed. The hands-on science exhibits, with everything from robots and technology to outer space and physics kept them excited and busy.

There is more to Oslo than history and museums, though.. Head for some fun with your first stop at the Tusenfryd Amusement Park just south of the city, which offers some modern adventure-packed excitement. Kids and adults alike will love the roller coasters, water slides, bumper cars, carousels and other thrilling rides. Plan a full day here, and try to keep up with the younger generation!. We must have gone on the Speed Monster at least 8 times, and never tired of it.

We made our way to Frogner Park, a great place for our picnic, among the outdoor displays of the Vigeland Sculpture Park. Next to the park, the Frognerbadet swimming pools and water slides provided wet adventure, as well as some well-deserved summer fun. And a walk through the Oslo Botanical Gardens left us in awe of the region's flora with its ornate landscaping and colors.

Unlike many major urban centers, Oslo is bordered by numerous wooded areas. To the north, the Maridalen area, with winding hiking trails, thick forests and a big lake, was the perfect place for us all to burn some pent-up energy, while enjoying the sights and sounds of nature at its best...
