    Oslo - Auf dem Weg zum Appartment

    July 5, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Vom Holmenkollen führt uns die letzte und bisher verkehrstechnisch schwierigste Stecke ins Appartement und ins Stadtzentrum zur Autovermietung um unser Auto abzugeben. Nachdem wir nach einigen Anläufen dann endlich das Auto los sind, haben wir beim zurück spazieren in die Unterkunft schon ein paar Schnappschüsse von Oslo machen können.Read more

    Oslo Municipal Park 1

    August 9, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Vigeland Sculpture Park is in Oslo with more than 200 sculptures by Gustav Vigeland ( 1869-1943) in granite and cast iron including the popular Angry Boy, and was completed in 1950. Vigeland was also responsible for the design and architectural outline of the Park, and it is one of Norway's top tourist attractions.
    Gustav Vigeland was a quiet lobbyist, and persuaded the city of Oslo to build him a combined home and studio. In return, he would donate his works to the city.
    The sculpture park is a evocative tribute to humankind in all its complexity.

    Oslo 1. Stadtrundgang

    September 5, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Heute haben wir die 1. Schritte durch Oslo gemacht. Wir sind mit der S-Bahn ca. in 20 Minuten im Zentrum. Wie man auf den Bildern sieht ist die Königsfamilie im Palast. Zum Start haben wir die edle Kaffeebar von Tim Wendelboe besucht. Ein tolles Mittagessen haben wir im Festingen genossen nach einem langen Pflastersteinmarsch bei der Festung Akershus.Read more

    Oslo! Dänu und Caro sind da...

    July 29, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Früh am Morgen (10:00) holen wir Dänu und Caro am Flughafen ab und besichtigen auf dem Weg zu unserem schiggen Airbnb noch die Holmenkollen Schanze.
    Tag 2 in Oslo mimt Dänu den Reiseführer, aber zuerst werden die verflixten Citybikes gelöst. 1h später besichtigen wir Alles was es zu sehen gibt, so viel Erkundungsenergie überfordert unsere angewöhnte Gemächlichkeit fast, aber wir halten mit. Zum Glück kann man sich zwischendurch im Meer erfrischen.Read more

    Bette and I bit tired

    July 6, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Bells are ringing again in Oslo. They chime the hour then play a tune to honour someone or other and we have lost two hours again so a bit confused. We have a gorgeous room in the hotel and the staff here are so obliging. Have to reorganise our luggage a bit before boarding the boat and we are going shoe shopping in the morning as one of my pairs of walking shoes fell apart in Iceland 🇮🇸 xxRead more

    Oslo

    June 26, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Having fun here in Oslo. Weather mainly clear but cool for Summer max20 degrees. Been to amazing huge sculpture park and Viking museum. Bette reckons I would look the part with a Viking helmet on and standing at the bow. What is she trying to say? Went to the painter Edward Munch museum and saw a huge collection of his work then on to the Home of the Nobel Peace prize. We had a hilarious time trying to buy train tickets. The streets are full of young people celebrating their Schoolies and lots of buskers. Walked a lot and feet holding up ok . Food is great but very expensive. Hotel in a great position and very comfortable. More adventures tomorrow love to all B&B cxxRead more

    Last days in Oslo

    June 28, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Have really enjoyed exploring Oslo further . The Nobel Peace prize museum was very moving. There was a very emotive exhibition on refugees that reminded me of the stories of so many of the refugees I taught. Todd and Col would have loved the Kontiki museum we went to with the actual raft as pictured here as well as another place which covered adventures to the Arctic and Antarctic in wooden ships. Today we went to the modern art gallery which had some interesting and also bizarre pieces. We were getting very tired and sat down in two huge red chairs and watched a terrible short film that made us laugh so hard we hardly were able to get out of the chairs. Bette decided to join the school children who were dressing up and having their photos taken. The attendant said the masks were just for kids but I managed to take this photo of her in the monster mask. See if the little ones recognise her!! We saw all theses little kids on outings today. Two carers pushed 6 kids about Ned's age in these two red wooden wagons . They let the kids run around on the grass for a while then lay them all down under a tree covered each one up and they all went to sleep. They were still there when we came out of the gallery. We wondered what magic spell they had performed. We then took a ferry out on the fjord. Early to bed tonight as we are off on our Iceland adventure tomorrow. XxxxxRead more

    Großstadtluft

    August 12 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Wir schnuppern wieder Großstadtluft. Uns fällt auf, dass wir seit Wochen in keiner richtigen Stadt mehr waren. Braucht man in Norwegen auch nicht, aber Oslo gefällt uns. Wir erkunden mit unseren Rädern einige Statdviertel - zuerst Frogner, dann Zentrum, Kampen, Grünerløkka und Vulkan. Die Stadt wirkt auf uns sehr lebenswert. Sie bietet viele nette Lokale, Streetart, schöne Parks, internationale Küche und kaum Autos. Es scheint eine Fahrrad- und Rolleranarchie zu herrschen. We like it! ❤️🚲🛴🌳🌈🥰
    Am letzten Abend in Norwegen hauen wir noch auf den Putz und gönnen uns zwei Dosen Bier für 20 Euro. 🤑🤪

    Oslo, Euopean Green Capital 2019, great!

    September 24, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Oslo, finally Norway! Months waiting to be here...and...it is better than expected. Natalie and me feel finally the freedom of Van-life, the nature near to us and we are more relaxed after having all big formalities behind us. It feels good! The weather is good, not to cold, less tourists, empty highways...great!

    Oslo today was a great experience. We went in with the scope of discovering the European Green Capital 2019...and we found it. Starting from the Visitor Center (Tourist Info), to the streets, and some museums. We felt the city and people where committed to the cause of turning their lives into a more sustainable, cleaner and environmentally friendly life as possible.

    Oslo I - Frognerpark

    August 28 in Norway ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Guten Abend ihr Lieben,
    Heute wieder ein Spätbericht.....
    Heute sind wir nach dem aufstehen gleich los mit dem Bus in die City und haben einen kleinen Spaziergang durch Oslo gemacht.
    Nach einem kurzen Abstecher zu Dom und Parlament haben wir uns beim Espresso House ein Frühstück to go geholt und gemütlich vor dem Schloß verspeist, während wir der Wachablösung zugesehen haben.
    Dann sind wir durch den Schloßgarten zum Frognerpark gelaufen und haben uns Vigelands nackte Skulpturen angeschaut.
