The Allure of Oslo
You’ll be delighted to discover that one city can be such a place of learning, romance, commerce, and appreciation of the arts. People come to Oslo from every corner of the world for educational opportunities and chances to work at important global organizations. The many galleries, theatres, and museums celebrate European and Norwegian culture. You’ll learn much about the people by their cuisine; many popular dishes feature cod, lamb, and cloudberries. Dinner tends to be the only meal of the day that is served warm. Breakfast and lunch often consist of open sandwiches that feature cheeses, jams, or cold meats. Of course, you’ll have plenty of excuses to duck into cozy cafés throughout the day for hot treats—in case you were wondering, the people of Norway have one of the highest consumption rates of coffee in the world.
The hip city of Oslo keeps cool when it comes to the weather. The warm and pleasant summers here often experience temperatures between 12 and 24 degrees Celsius. The city never looks more magical than when winter casts a spell over it. Plan for frozen temperatures and snowy conditions once winter arrives. Both spring and fall tend to be rather brisk. Regardless of when you plan your stay at an Oslo hotel, warm people, hot coffee, and lively attractions will help light a fire inside your belly.
