Advantages of the Oslo Pass

The other day, when we were touring five amazing places in Oslo, I told you about the Oslo Pass . It is a card that allows you free access to museums, tourist attractions, public transport and other types of activities in the city. It also offers you discounts on guided tours, concerts, restaurants and shops.

Price of the Oslo Pass 2017-2018

If you want to make the most of your visit to the Norwegian capital, it is worth buying. Of course, if you do not plan to enter museums, for example, it is not profitable. The prices of the Oslo Pass for 2017 and 2018 are as follows:

– 24 hours: 395 NOK (about 40 euros)
– 48 hours: 595 NOK (about 60 euros)
– 72 hours: 745 NOK (about 76 euros)

For children (between four and 15 years old) and older (from 67) it is cheaper.

It is a matter of accounting. If you are going to move by public transport and you have the idea of ​​visiting several of the many museums in the city, it will be interesting for you. Along with your card you will receive a book with all the activities that you can do for free and the places where you will enjoy discounts. You can buy it at the Oslo tourist office ( Oslo Visitor Center ), in some museums, in hotels and also online. Keep in mind that in some places they only sell it in summer.

A tour of the museums of Oslo

If you like museum tourism, Oslo is a good place to enjoy incredible exhibition spaces. Some of those that are included in the Oslo Pass are the Norwegian Maritime Museum, Holmenkollen Ski Museum and the Jumping Trampoline Tower, Viking Ship Museum, Edvard Munch Museum, Fram Museum, Kon-Tiki Museum, National Museum of Science and Technology, the Oslo City Hall, the Norwegian Folk Museum, the National Gallery, DogA (Norwegian Center for Design and Architecture) or the Museum of History, among others.


Free transportation with the Oslo Pass

In addition, you can use your Oslo Pass to move comfortably around the city. It is available for zones 1 and 2 and you can travel for free on the metro, tram, bus and local trains. In addition, it is also valid for the Bygdøy ferry (the one that leads to the museum area where the Fram is, for example) and for the boat to the islands of the Oslo fjord. Also included is the bus to Tusenfryd.

Other free activities

During the months of June, July and August, the so-called Oslo Promenade walks are organized, guided tours in English and Norwegian that will also be free with this card.

In addition, with your 72-hour card you can also get on the City Cruise for free, a cruise on an old sailboat that runs through the interior of the fjord. The journey begins at the Town Hall and you will be able to see, from the sea, the Akershus Fortress and the Opera. Continue to the Bygdøy museums and return. You can do it completely, as a tourist visit, or get off at the stops to see each area more calmly.


On the other hand, there are other types of activities that you can also do with the discounts offered by the Oslo Pass , such as visiting the Winter Park, the zip lines, the Tøyenbadet Pools, getting on the Holmenkollen ski simulator, eating in certain restaurants or buy in stores like Norway Shop, among others.

I said, if you had planned to visit the museums of Oslo, move on the subway, do some activity and buy souvenirs in its stores, the Oslo Pass can be very convenient. Just do your math and decide. And, if you have any doubts, the tourist office also explains how it works and how you can amortize it.
