As it’s winter, it’ll come as no surprise that Oslo is absolutely freezing at this time of year. To stay snug, go for a cream knitted roll-neck jumper and layer up with a sturdy puffer jacket in an on-trend check print. As for the rest of your getup, a pair of pin-rolled jeans, black Converse One Star creps and a matching flight bag to cart your guidebook around in will have you looking the part.

As Olso is a relatively small city, no matter where you stay you’ll never be too far away from the capital’s main attractions. However, St. Hanshaugen is just the spot if you want to be close to the centre (it’s a little further north) but surrounded by greenery. The area is essentially a massive urban park situated on the top of a hill, so you’ll be treated to incredible panoramic views of Oslo. In addition to this, it’s right next door to Grünerløkka – a neighbourhood

Despite its size, there’s plenty to keep you preoccupied in Oslo. Make sure to take a trip to the iconic Nobel Peace Center down by the harbour, and if you’re organised enough, hop on a fjord tour to see the authentic Norwegian summer houses that exist on the outskirts of the city – and get the chance to cruise past the iconic Opera House on the way. Your boat will most likely make a stop at the peninsula Bygdøy, or ‘museum island’, where the Viking Ship Museum and the Polar Ship Fram Museum are situated if you’re in the mood for a spot of naval history.

Back in town, head to the National Gallery to see Edvard Munch’s iconic painting The Scream or marvel at the artwork that covers the walls at Rådhuset AKA Oslo City Hall. If modern art is more your vibe, venture to Tjuvholmen where you’ll find the Astrup Fearnley Museet situated on the waterfront. The contemporary collection features work by Damien Hirst, Francis Bacon and Jeff Koons, to name a few.

All that sightseeing will probably leave you feeling peckish, so book a spot at street food haven Vippa for a quirky culinary experience. Alternatively, travel over to Grünerløkka for cheap pizza at Villa Paradiso (a rarity in Oslo!)
