I’m back home again but I still have two more days in Oslo to write about!
On our second day in the Norwegian capital, we started the day with localising a breakfast restaurant I had seen on Instagram, which turned out to be a huge disappointment. Let’s make “Don’t’ judge a place by it’s Instagram photos” the new “Don’t judge a book by its cover”, haha. Instead, we ended up at a small café in a shopping mall where we also spent some time after breakfast due to heavy rain.
When the rain had cleared a bit we headed up to Damstredet, a cobbled street with wooden houses from the first half of the 19th century which I obviously adored!
A trip to Damstredet isn’t complete without also visiting the street Telthusbakken which is just around the corner and also has a lot of super cute houses. We walked between the two streets on a small trail called Kjærlighetsstien which can be translated into “The Love Trail”.
After that, we walked over the bridge Åmotbrua over the river Akerselva to get to the area Grünerløkka.
We walked back to the central parts of the city and had a burger for lunch before entering Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel. We took the elevator to the top floor and had an amazing view over the city and talked about having dinner at their restaurant later, but walked away pretty fast when we saw the prices on the menu, haha! Oslo is known to be an expensive city, and I have to say that people do not exaggerate when they talk about it. Oslo IS expensive.
The view from the terrace at our apartment wasn’t that bad either so we spent some time there to rest our feet after a long day of walking. The sun also came out after a cloudy morning so we had a really good time there!
Since we had ruled out dinner at Radisson we looked at the map to find a good dinner restaurant close by and found the area Sørenga just across a bridge from where we were staying.
We had been a bit disappointed at almost every meal in Oslo, but we got happy when we saw everything Sørenga had to offer! This is totally the place to go if you’re looking for a restaurant in Oslo! We ended up at the Italian restaurant Cargo and sat there all evening, enjoying the sun and the view over the water – there were even people taking a dip in the water! Such a lovely evening!
