Our home is situated in an old style apartment building from the late 19th century. The apartment has a cosy backyard with a small garden, sitting place shared with the neighbours.
The apartment is in the top floor (3rd floor) – and has no lift or balcony. It is 60 m2 and consists of:
- A big living- and dining room with rosette, stucco and a fire place.
- A kitchen with small table and dishwasher
- A bathroom with shower, combined washing machine & dryer
- Two small bedrooms which each has a small double bed (120 x 200 cm).
Bedroom 1 (masters bedroom) has small desk with computer and high speed internet. Bedroom 2 is used as a guest room.
Extra bed can be added.
The apartment is situated in a quiet street in lower parts of Grünerløkka, a former working class area which is now one of Oslo’s best quarters for outdoor establishment, lokal designershops, small cafes and restaurants & bars. The area also have three beautiful parks (perfect for picnic & barbeque).
Lower Grünerløkka is just between the lovely botanic garden and the museum of painter Edvard Munch (Tøyen-area) – and Karl Johans gate (Oslo’s main pedestrian). These locations can easily be reached by foot. (10 – 15 minutes walk).
By public transport:
Two minutes walk from the apartment: Direct bus to the beach (at the Bygdøy-peninsula in Oslo fjord with Viking ship museum, Thor Heyerdahl museum and Folk museum with Stave Church)
Three minutes walk: Tram directly to the park of Gustav Vigerland “Frognerparken” - great place for picnic, tennis & swimming. Metro to great hiking areas with forest and lakes.
Oslo in winter:
Ice-skaiting, slalom, cross-country skiing & tobogganing - 20 min. by metro from city center!

We are a couple 30+ who works as civil servants. No children. Unfortunatley, we can not make any exchanges during summer 2009 (June- mid. September)
