Oslo’s hidden treasure – the Open Bakery

Norway is known for their bakeries and in one of Oslo’s tranquil streets you’ll find Åpent Bakeri (Open Bakery), one of the best bakeries in Oslo. Åpent Bakeri is a hands-on bakery, baking with old traditions and simple, natural ingredients.

The Scandinavian Dad and I visited the bakery today, pics is taken at 4pm -and no problem with getting a table. Not that easy on a Saturday morning when the queue stretches all the way down to the Norwegian Royal Castle and its park (Slottsparken) in Oslo’s city centre.

They have bread and buns in all shapes and forms that you simply must have. Try the ‘surdeigsbrød’ and the ‘muslibrød’. And treat yourself with a giant “hvete bolle” and a cafe latte when you are visiting.


Åpent Bakery is rated as top 3 things to do in Norway by Lonely Planet travellers. NY Times recommends Åpent Bakeri as one of 12 things to do in Oslo. Visit Åpent Bakeri in Inkognito terasse 1, Oslo, Norway.
