Oslo’s beautiful main street was named after King Charles III John of Norway, who was also King of Sweden. And what a street it is! Connecting the Royal Palace to Oslo Central Station, the lively kilometre long street contains other top Oslo attractions such as:

  • Palace Park
  • Spikersuppa Pond at Eidsvolls plass, (a winter skating rink)
  • Oslo Cathedral
  • Bazaar Market (Basarene ved Oslo domkirke)
  • The historic Fire Watch (Brannvakten)

Historical significance aside, the road also serves some of Oslo’s hottest nightlife - discos, night clubs, bars, jazz clubs, and many cafes. The people watching here is always fantastic. On 17th may, Norway’s Constitution Day, a parade marches down the street.
