Oh, thanks! 72 pass makes a lot of sense in our case.
Well, We are probably gonna take one of those days to go on a one-day trip somewhere out of Oslo.
We are sleeping in a hostel over there, booked a room with two single beds, so at least we won't be in the middle of 12 drunk americans or sthing.
So what did you like-dislike about the touristy stuff? Anything we definitely should or shouldn't do?
I stayed in Anker hostel in Oslo, two single beds as well, was great cause it was close to the city centre. In Oslo you can see a lot of stuff on foot. First day we saw the Nobel peace center, royal palace, Akershus fortress, Munch museum. Second day we went to Bygdoy peninsula, which is where stuff like the viking museum and the outdoor museum of cultural history are. You can get there by boat or by bus. And on third day we went to the Vigeland's park and Holmenkollen and also the opera house in the evening.
72 hour pass offers you some discounts for food as well, which comes handy since it's quite expensive.
Holmenkollen is quite famous as the winter sport centre, but it's a bit outside town and if the weather's not the best, then there might not be much to see, as it otherwise has a pretty nice view of Oslo.
I think the Munch museum and Vigeland's park are very nice. Nobel's peace center is okay for a quick tour, but it depends what the exhibition is on (in the summer it was about apartheid and Obama as he was the award winner at the time). Museums on Bygdoy are pretty cool, but even if it's basically a part of Oslo, it still takes you a larger part of the day to go through it all, well depending on what there you feel like seeing.
Public transport is quite useful I felt as well, so it comes really handy to take you between things you want to see, so you can see as much as possible in the time you have. You get a booklet with the Oslo pass that's really helpful with all the bus/tram/metro-lines. You'll quite quickly realise, that Oslo is quite small and easy to get around.
