Our Diemme visit in Oslo was a great success, during the short trip we visited a few beautiful places recommended by the Italian shoe brand. Having fully immersed ourselves in the Nordic city of Oslo, we are excited to share their top city tips with you: 

You should definitely visit Grünerlokkas’ vibrant and trendy neighborhood. Here cozy cafes, street art, charming shopping streets with designer boutiques, vintage shops as well as flea markets meet street art and vibrant nightlife, creating a kind of bohemian super hip atmosphere. Another rather modern and cultural hub to visit is Bjorvika, a waterfront district located in central Oslo.  

If you are into museums you can start your exploration at the “Munch Museum”. Just marvel at the famous painting “The Scream” and explore a vast collection of Norway’s most renowned artist, Edvard Munch’s, masterpieces and personal artifacts. Another definitely “must see” is “The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet”. Besides an exclusive opera and ballet program, you can book guided tours or basically admire the building's contemporary architecture by taking a walk on the sloping rooftop, and enjoy panoramic views of the city and the fjord. For more art, design and architecture collections “The National Museum” and “The Vigeland Museum” should not be missed on your bucket list. 

In addition to education and culture, fashion should not be neglected - so let’s go shopping!

Oslo offers a range of shopping experiences, from high-end fashion boutiques to local designers. Here are our top three stores to explore:

  1. Dapper: It’s an independent mulit-brand concept store known for its curated selection of high-quality menswear, footwear, accessories and lifestyle products with two locations in Oslo. 
  1. Moniker: This beautiful store makes the women's shopping heart beat faster. The assortment includes clothing, accessories and interiors of well-known (Scandinavian) designer brands. 
  1. YME Universe: It’s located in a beautiful and historic building from 1844. In this universe of fashion, art, interior, and design, customers are not only encouraged to meet and exchange ideas, but to shop from leading sneaker and streetwear brands. 

In between a long shopping and/or museum day, you should always take a step back and enjoy a delicious and authentic meal. If you're craving for delicious sandwiches or a nice little brunch, have a table at “The Vandelay” or “Lokka Deli”. To bring some Italian cuisine to your trip, take a bite of “Focacceria’s” delicious, soft, fluffy and full of flavor focaccia bread or homemade pasta. If you are more into japanese food, pay a visit to “Koie Ramen”. Here you can find one of the best handmade Ramen-noodles in town. A unique cultural and culinary nordic cuisine destination is waiting for you at “Nedre Foss Gard”. The high class restaurant set in a 18th-century manor house focuses on sustainability and quality ingredients. During the warmer months, you can enjoy your meal on the terrace and take in the peaceful ambiance.
