Food Scene

Great local place with traditional Norwegian food and a good beer selection, very reasonably priced. Get there early for dinner as there are only a few tables and they don't take reservations.

Parks & Nature

Hike or take the cable car to the top of the tallest of the 7 city mountains. I highly recommend hiking the trail Vidden, which will get you to Mt Fløyen in about 4 hours. There are a couple steep inclines, but most is fairly flat.
