Thea Mørk's guide to Oslo
Here you’ll find Norway’s largest rose collection with 150 different kinds, surrounded by many different trees such as Common Lime, Sycamore, Norway Maple, Elm, Poplar and Ash. The park is also home to a manor house, open air public baths and over 200 sculptures by artist Gustav Vigeland.“There are so many wonderful green areas and parks in Oslo. I’ve gone running here many times, it’s also great for sightseeing as there is so much to see here.”
På idylliska Lindøya finns runt 300 stugor i rött, gult och grönt. Bara en kvart från storstaden ligger ett litet semesterparadis och en populär baddestination. Ön är populär även bland måsar, gäss och änder. Sommartid har öns egen lanthandel öppet så du kan få dig en kopp kaffe och en glass.– Öarna är perfekt avkoppling och närheten till staden gör det lätt att kombinera. Jag gillar att bada på Lindøya, och dessutom är det en härlig båtresa ut.
Here right next to the Foreign Office building, appropriately enough, you get a bit of the world served on a plate. Miss Sophie is a well-traveled woman in the prime of her life and has been inspired by pulsating New York bars and romantic Paris trips. You can start or end your visit in the cocktail bar, and the art deco styled restaurant has plenty of gold, velvet and green plants.“I love brunch and I've been wanting to try Miss Sophie for a long time. They have such a cool menu. However, they only serve brunch at weekends and the restaurant doesn't open until 4pm on weekdays.

Observera att brunch bara serveras på helgerna och under veckan öppnar restaurangen först kl. 16:00.
Tiril Refsum started the catering firm RawFood in 2016 to offer healthier food. Armed with healthy fats, proteins, minerals and vitamins, the concept proved a success and now includes eateries, cook books, catering, workshops and events.“This is another place I really like. It’s so appetizing and inviting. They also do raw food.

The former Aker Sparebank is now an airy and beautiful space. There are two reasons behind Südøst's success. Exciting and delicious Asian crossover cuisine on the food front, plus one of the finest places to eat al fresco in Oslo right on the Akerselva river. Centrally located in lower Grünerløkka, you’ll find the recipe for a whole evening and the outdoor heaters extend the night and summer in the open.“This is one of my favorite places to eat dinner in summer. The outdoor tables are great, ditto the atmosphere, and not least the food is good. You can sit here for hours.”

Ekeberg has a long history and you can enjoy both art and nature here. This is the second most famous sculpture park in Oslo after Vigelandsparken, but with a completely different atmosphere. For example, you can stand in the place as Edvard Munch is said to have stood, when he gained the inspiration to paint The Scream. If you’re hungry, you can eat at Ekebergrestauranten, a gourmet restaurant in a beautiful functionalist-style building with spectacular views of the city, fjord and Holmenkollen.“Go to Ekeberg and the park. There are many fascinating sculptures here, plus fantastic views over the whole of Oslo. It’s also the part of Oslo I’m from so I recommend an outing here.”
