Bacchus Spiseri & Vinbar

This eatery in an old inner courtyard in the center of Oslo, with its rustic brickwork, nostalgic spiral staircase and beautiful windows, is a gorgeous setting for a romantic date. There’s been a café here for many years, but new owners recently took over offering creative Nordic cuisine served by a brigade of young chefs such as Jon Marius Sletten, who has worked at several renowned Oslo restaurants.

Emanuel Vigeland Museum

Emanuel Vigeland Museum

Painter Emanuel Vigeland (1875-1948) had a gallery in mind when he commissioned this building in Slemdal. He later decided it could also serve as a mausoleum. Tomba Emanuelle, as he named it, is covered on the inside with fresco paintings depicting erotic scenes. The urn containing Vigeland’s ashes is displayed above the door.

Grimelundsveien 8, Oslo

The Well

If you like things a bit hot and steamy, head to The Well, 15km east of downtown Oslo. This luxurious spa has 11 pools, 15 saunas and 25 different treatment rooms where you and your love can enjoy fun and games, either naked or in the spa’s own swimwear. You can swim, enjoy couple massages or splash around in the outdoor Jacuzzi and if you’re hungry, just slip on a bathrobe and enjoy dinner in the restaurant.

Grims Grenka

This is quite possibly the coolest hotel in Oslo. The spacious and stylish rooms are well equipped and during summer, you can enjoy a drink at the delightful rooftop bar and terrace. The hotel offers a romantic two-night package in a suite with champagne and strawberries on arrival and finger food in bed. 

Kongens 4, Oslo

Rosita Blomster

Emiria Lorentzen can truly be called the Rose Queen, having been born and raised in a rose nursery outside Bogotá in Colombia. Here, you can find over 100,000 plant species. Fortunately, at least some of the country’s long stalked roses can be bought for a reasonable price in her store in the CC Vest shopping mall.
