The Dream Christmas Markets
Traveling to Oslo is a voyage through history, culture, and culinary delights. During the holiday season, Oslo's Christmas markets transform the city into a fairytale land of twinkling lights, festive decorations, and an array of artisanal crafts. Stroll through these markets, savoring the aroma of freshly baked treats and hot mulled wine, while immersing yourself in the warmth of holiday cheer.
Diving into the city's rich history as you explore museums, galleries, and historic sites narrate the story of Norway's past. The Viking Museum is very interesting to get lost in for a few hours since Oslo is known for its Viking background. Wander through the charming streets, admiring the architecture that reflects a harmonious blend of old-world charm and modern innovation. The Royal Palace is sometimes closed during the year but is still super cool to walk around and take pictures of. It is currently the official residence of the current Norwegian monarch.
And let's not forget Oslo's thriving food scene – a culinary journey that tempts your taste buds with everything from traditional Norwegian dishes to global gastronomic delights. Lots of the restaurants sit right on the water so you will always have a nice view. Indulge in seafood fresh from the fjords, savor reindeer specialties, and discover a fusion of flavors that tantalize your senses.
Outside of the food scene and Christmas markets, you might as well travel to Kirkenes to see the northern lights during the months of September through March. You can see the Northern Lights in the most southern parts of Oslo but why not see it at the Snow Hotel? Traveling to Norway in general is an amazing yet active trip to do with friends or family.
Fun fact: The Nobel Peace Prize is awarded every year in Oslo on December 10th. The exhibit is worth peeking your head into. There is no other place I can think of that reminds me of this cute little town. Everyone around you is so happy and welcoming. I am sure Oslo is enchanting all year round but if you get the chance to travel for the wintertime near the holidays, you will not regret it!
