Which daytrips would you suggest from Oslo? (around 1-1,5 hours away).
It doesn't help too much actually, but thanks for your effort
And I forgot to add: By car/bus/train (I prefer the latter).
That's agood point indeed
I would suggest going by ferry to bygdoy too! The problem is, it is only 15mins away from main Oslo. We went to the Kon Tiki museum, Maritime museum and Fram museum, these are a few steps from each other. then catch the bus to the Viking museum, have a look there, and take the bus for a short ride to the Open air folk museum. It has a museum and a real good display of norwegian buildings. This will fill in a fair bit of a day. You can have a look at my oslo page if you want.
Bygdøya, which is allready mentioned is a good tip (although I consider it a part of Oslo). You can also take the train to Eidsvoll and see the Eidsvoll building (where our constitution was written in 1814). I'm not sure, but I think you'll be able to read the texts in english. You didn't mention when you were traveling. I know they have some guided tours, but think that's only in the summer.
Also you can visit Drøbak. A beutifull little (verry little) town in the summer. Again not to much for a winter trip, but a visit to Oscarshamn is a good thing (Outside Drøbak).
You could take the train to the Holmenkollen ski-jump. Even in summer this is a nice trip and you'll have a fantastic view from there.
Hm. I might be mistaken on my anwer. Do you mean to travel 1-1.5 hors and then have a look around, before heading back, or do you want to do all in 1-1.5 hours including getting back.
I meant, travel for 1-1,5 hours (just an example), to spend the day wandering and go back; is short, how to spend a free day
All right. That was as I thought.
