1. Viking Ship Museum
What's a visit to Oslo without taking a trip to the Viking Ship Museum and learning about Nordic culture? Some 1100 years ago Vikings used longships as centerpieces for grand ceremonial burials and along with these ships many items such as jewelry, furniture, weapons, and even dogs and servants. In the late 19th century three ceremonial ships were discovered and now wonderfully restored to give us a glimpse into the world of Vikings.
2. Holmenkollen Ski Jump
Even when you're not a dare-devil ski jumper Holmenkollen is still a great place to add to your Oslo bucket list. Perched on a hilltop overlooking the entire city, it offers a panoramic view of the city and has tons of other attractions you can enjoy. If ski-jumping just isn't for you, but you're still up for that adrenaline rush, try out their zipline which is 361 meters of pure adrenaline. And if you're up for something more relaxed visit the ski museum that has documented over 4,000 years of skiing history.
3. Magic Ice Bar and Gallery
If you're itching for a drink to keep warm in Oslo's cool temperatures why not head over to Magic Ice and enjoy your drink in a truly unique setting. From the seats and glasses to the illuminated sculptures almost everything is made out of ice at this bar and gallery. Have a walk around and revel in the amazing ice installations with colorful LED lighting.
