From end of November until the end of December Oslo is not only covered in white snow, the capital is also glittering and shining from all the Christmas lights and decoration several places in the city.
Oslo has several big and small markets and events all over the city the most famous being the festive and fun Christmas Market at City Hall Square.
We highly recommend our favourite Christmas market; The traditional and charming market at Norsk Folkemuseum (The Norwegian Museum of Cultural History), a fantastic Christmas experience for both adults and children.
The Christmas Fair is open the first two weekends in December, with many of the old buildings in the open-air museum decorated for Christmas according to the old Norwegian traditions. More than 100 sale stands throughout the museum grounds sell unique items such as handmade arts and crafts, decorations and ornaments, traditional foods and other holiday treats. There is children’s activities like Norwegian folk dance, Santa’s Workshop, pony riding and ice skating.
