Places

Åsne Seierstad's Oslo

Author and journalist Åsne Seierstad lives in Oslo. Here are some of her favorite places.

Frognerbadet

I love to swim here on summer mornings. No other big city has anything like the outdoor swimming pool complex at Frogner Park.

Nordmarka

Skiing is the best thing in the world. I haven't had a driver's license until recently, so I've always taken my skis on the subway up to Frogner-seteren and Nordmarka.

Bygdøy

I often cycle from Frogner to Bygdøy to swim. It's home to beautiful natural scenery, picturesque beaches and excellent museums (Kon-Tiki Museum, Viking Ship Museum, Norwegian Museum of Cultural History and the Holocaust Center).

The Opera

I frequently attend events at the Oslo Opera House. My friend Ingrid Lorentzen is Ballet Director at the Norwegian National Opera & Ballet.

House of Literature

This wonderful building just behind the Royal Palace is a national arena for literature, culture and debate. It has a café and holds many events.

Cycling city

In summer 2017, Oslo was named one of the world's best cities for cycling. You can rent city bikes all over downtown Oslo.
