These are the Top New Attractions in Oslo for Summer 2022

The Norwegian capital’s waterfront continues to evolve at an incredible rate. The new National Museum finally opens after a long delay.

The National Museum, which is expected to be one of Scandinavia’s most significant cultural venues, will be a highlight for any Oslo itinerary this summer. This is what you need to know in order to visit the National Museum and other attractions in Oslo during the summer of 2022.

The new national museum

The National Museum will open in June. It will replace several cultural buildings, including the National Gallery which was closed for many years to prepare for the move.

For the first time, the new museum brings together contemporary art, classical art, and architecture studies in one place. This vast museum can display around 5,000 works from its entire collection. It is more than twice as large as the previous museums.

A new public plaza, roof terrace, and the magnificent Light Hall will be available for diverse cultural events throughout the summer, as well as in the future.

Visitors shouldn’t expect to simply turn up and get in, especially during the first few months. It will be possible to book ahead and avoid disappointment by purchasing a timed entry ticket system.

Munch Museum

The new Edvard Munch Museum opened late last year, also after considerable delays. This summer, many international tourists will have the opportunity to visit this new towering facility. It is home to three versions of Munch’s most renowned artwork, The Shout .

Despite the controversy surrounding the architecture, the waterfront building houses more Munch’s artwork than any other public space. You can also visit exhibits and experiments such as the interactive creative area Brain Maze that is open until mid September.

Booking a timed entry ticket is recommended, just like at the National Museum.

You can take a refreshing dip in Oslofjord while you wait. Nearby Sorenga has a fjord swimming area at the end the boardwalk. The new Munch location for the Oslo Fjord Sauna is proving to be a huge hit with young people since its opening.

Oslo: New Hotels

The Scandic Holmenkollen Park has been renovated and is now open with 376 guest rooms. A new spa complex will be opening later in the year. While the hotel’s unique architecture is preserved, its interiors have been updated to meet modern standards.

Unfortunately, another long-awaited hotel will not open in time for the summer season. The 231-room Sommerro House has been transformed from a landmark 1930s building west of Oslo. It is set to be one of the most luxurious hotels in Norway. The original public baths of the building have been converted into a wellness and health space, making Sommerro a real destination hotel in Norway.
