“Why is there a tiger outside the sentral train station here in Oslo?” the guide asks. The group of people from Spain, Canada, Germany, Amerika and Holland have no idea
We are on a guided tour with Free Tour Oslo. A free 90 minutes long walk through central Oslo , where we get the answer to the tiger question and lots more..
The tour starts by Oslo S. Just turn up at 10.00 a.m daily in the summer months. Friday- Sunday there is an extra walk 16p.m
We start at the central station, walk to the opera , further up Rådhusgata to the fortress . After that we stroll over to the City Hall, before we go to the national theatre , Karl Johan ( the main street) and finish off in front of the parliament.
These free tours are run by non- authorized guides, but that is almost unbelievable. Our guide was incredible knowledgeable, both on historic and Oslo today. She had lots of interesting stories and useful information.
Even though the tours are free, you are encouraged to tip – something today`s guide really deserved.
I really recommend everybody who pays Oslo a visit during spring/summer to take this walk, it was fun and informative also for me as an Oslo native.
Time to go
