Oslo Christmas Market

Oslo is a beautiful city, and they are likely to have snow at the time of the Christmas markets. That does mean it will be colder than your other stops, it was -7 degrees when we were there. 

Christmas in Winterland (Jul i Vinterland) is the main Christmas market in Oslo, located in Spikersuppa, alongside Karl Johan street. The main square is opposite the National Theatre and is full of wooden stalls selling handicrafts, food, roasted nuts, and hot drinks. Shoppers can buy cured meats and warm Norwegian sweaters or use the fun stalls, ride the Ferris wheel, or skate at Spikersuppa skating rink on Oslo’s main high street.

The film shows you where, and we also have an excellent Oslo Guide film. Oslo is at the end of Oslofjord which is where Fred Olsen started their shipping line many years ago. The city is clean and inviting, but it is very expensive. A bag of nuts was twice the price of Hamburg, the hot wine was three times the cost. There was a children’s fun park and ice-skating rink next to the Christmas market which the others didn’t have – oh, and the talking reindeers! his market was busier than the others, being very popular with locals. The open log fires to sit around eating your toffee apple we also a nice touch. Wrap up warm.

 

Oslo loves the word Cosy. Well, it is all in one easy square.
