Fall is the perfect time to visit the Norwegian capital city of Oslo. The trees are yellow and red, the fjord is dark and mysterious, and the first snow falls in the hills. As the weather turns colder, the Norwegians organize lots of indoor and outdoor activities. Here are 5 tips for activities and culture in Oslo!


Night walk at Ekeberg

27 Oct FREE

Saturday 27 October, there is a night walk on the Ekeberg Hill, starting at the bottom at 19.00. Take tram 17 or 18 to Oslo Hospital (direction Ljabru). While walking along beautiful light installations spread throughout the forest, you will learn more about sustainability. People will be wearing headlights in order to form a continuous chain of light. At the top of the hill, there will be a free concert at 21.00.


Halloween at Svartdalen

28 Oct FREE

Each year on Halloween night, the Svartdalen Park («Black Valley») east of the city centre, is haunted by ghosts... The tour across this beautiful forest starts at bus stop Etterstad Sør (bus 37 direction Helsfyr), and continues down the river to Kværnerbyen. Activities from 17.30 to 20.00. Scary things will happen on the way, and there is a fire show at the end. A perfect Halloween activity, suited for children and adults alike!


Oslo World Music Festival

30 Oct – 04 Nov

The capital of Norway becomes the capital of world music during the first week of November. From 30 October to 4 November, Oslo hosts more than 30 concerts spread all over the city. Most of the artists are big stars in their own countries, but are not so famous for an international public. Here’s the perfect opportunity to get to know them. An unforgettable musical experience for the whole family!



Films from the South 

08 Nov – 18 Nov

African, Asian and Latin American film makers find their place each year in this interesting Film Festival based at the Cinemateket in Oslo. From 9 to 19 November, more than 100 featured films and documentaries are screened in the most exciting film festival in Norway. The event wants to promote tolerance and intercultural dialogue throughout the cinema. This festival is a good opportunity to learn more about cinema from other continents.
